Today was just a great day. I took a canvas embellishment class from Tony Minieri at Stitch by Stitch in Larchmont. Tony wrote a great stitch guide for my chicken canvas. I was a happy girl all day watching it come to life

A close up

A look at the whole canvas.

Denise made my day even more special with the wonderful gifts she got me from Italy. I absolutely love them. The best presents ever.

The "snap" tray is from Florence. It is pink patent leather. I just LOVE it. The wooden "laying tool"is from Ponza. Love the shell on top. It is really a stick for your hair but it makes the perfect laying tool.

Wonderful day with friends, stitching and gifts.

I love this canvas of yours and can't wait to see it come to life. I'm looking forward to your progress. It is going to be beautiful.

Hi Sharon,
The canvas is by Dan DiPalo for Kelly Clark. The canvas number is KDP 11-118.

The chicken canvas is adorable. What a good friend you have in Denise. Did you get your second kit from Amy's for the house. Lots and lots of shingles on those eaves. I stitched for three hours last night and got 16 roof shingles done. You think I would have finished the whole thing with that much time!

Hi Steph,

Yes, I have an absolutely wonderful friend in Denise. Just love the leather tray, and the laying tool lays the threads so smooth.
I am still trying to finish the shingles on half of the roof.
Have the walls on bars ready to go.
Will try to post a picture of my progress on huge roof.

Please do. I am up to 67 shingles out of the 242 total. I have not done any of the green. I pledge to catch up by the time the next kit comes out. UH-OH! Hope I can do that!
