Progress on Christmas Banner

I have completed the border on the right side of the canvas. I have to move the canvas to stitch the left side of the border. My forty inch evertites have not arrived yet. I sure hope they arrive this week. I am not comfortable with rolling up the stitched area and just leaving it hanging is not any better. Right now I am just letting it hang with a pillow case over it.
I am thoroughly enjoying stitching this canvas. Amy's choice of stitches and threads for the border is perfect. The direction changes and color changes for the stitches really makes someone looking at the canvas think it is so complicated to stitch but it is so fast and easy. Looking forward to lesson two. I can only imagine the magic Amy will work on the pears and background.

Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. I am so thankful to be blessed with my wonderful family and friends. I am especially thankful for my Jake. He brings such joy into my life.

Looks like wonderful progress so far. Maybe this should be Merry Christmas to me. Torn between the banner and Melissa Shirley's bottles that Amy has done a stitch guide for. What a choice!

Happy Thanksgiving to you both!

Your banner looks wonderful! It really is beautiful, isn't it? I love the Rhodes stitches with their dual colors/threads. I think I have found my groove with the border and really don't want to do anything else but stitch!

Stephanie in Texas - IMHO go with the Christmas banner. I'm working on the MS bottles and it is a great canvas and stitch guide but doesn't compare to the banner.
