This is the first time I've worked a 24 count canvas. This is Tony Minieri's "African Teapot" that I am doing at Stitch by Stitch for the next few months. We had our first class about 3 weeks ago; our next class is next week.
The stitches themselves are not overwhelming; a Hungarian variant for the helmet, some ribbon stitching, outline & encroaching gobelin for the elephant. I can understand why people love working on this count canvas; the detail you can get is pretty amazing.
On the other hand, for a person who needs instant gratification, this count can be challenging.
Needless to say I am loving taking a Tony class, no matter what. And there's a giraffe on this canvas, so I love it. For me, it's a lesson in patience.
Now that my homework is done (Tony suggested finishing the elephant), I am jumping into the next canvas in my perpetual calendar series.
And I have something fun to tell you about that we are doing at Stitch by Stitch this summer, but you will have to stay tuned; I have to get to work!
