Another Finish

Last night I finished another pear from the Kelly Clark Christmas Pear Club from The French Knot. This is a fun club to stitch.

I had this Santa button in my stash and thought it looked great on the canvas.

First Finish of 2014

Last night I finished this pear from The French Knot Kelly Clark Pear Club.
This is a wonderful club. Love all the pears.

I followed the stitch guide except for the flowers and leaves. I did Spider Web Roses and the Leaf Stitch for the leaves.

Progress On Christmas Village

I am having such a good time stitching this fun canvas. Ruth Schmuff owner of Bedecked and Beadazzled is doing a fabulous stitch guide for this Melissa Shirley canvas. So far we have gotten two lessons - the sky and one house - beautiful stitches, great choice of threads, beads and embellishments.

An overview of the whole canvas.

A close-up of the first house.

This is a Mystery Class with a Twist. Lessons come about every three months and you can sign up at anytime.

A Finish to Start 2014!

I finally finished a canvas! It seems like it's been so long since I've actually finished something, I must admit. I've been busy all around, as are we all. And then there's been knitting, another obsession....

This was really a fun project to work on. I took this class at The Enriched Stitch--two Saturdays in November. Really had a good time. The background stitch..easy...the beaded berries...such fun...the basket...with the ribbon--incredible ideas!

Suzie Vallerie did a great job with the stitch guide--creative, with just the right amount of challenge.

All the best in 2014.
