Back To Stitching

Well I am finally able to stitch. Jen finally got power back and they have all moved back home. It is so nice to have my nest back.

I have been working on my "friends" canvas and hope to get it finished this week.
I will not send it off for finishing until after Christmas. I do not want it sitting around at the finisher in a pile of other canvases. It is much safer sitting at home.
I will post a picture as soon as it is finished.

Last Sunday I had such a great time in my canvas embellishment class with Tony.
He did a wonderful stitch guide for this small Mindy piece.
Look at the magnet in the corner. When I made it, I did not realize that it matched my canvas.

Overview of canvas minus the buttons that go in the middle of the flower.

Cream bottom border. Oh, what a fabulous job Tony did. He graphed out the perfect pattern to fit the area perfectly. Black beads will be put in the black areas and red beads on the top and bottom areas of each V.

The top stripe area. Wonderful stitches and threads for this area.

Some stripes in the middle area.

Hope to return to this piece soon. Would love to have it finished before the New Year.
