I’ve been enjoying a few days away with the family at the beach and I have run into the most annoying problem. I’ve run out of stuff on two projects. This is annoying! I don’t know how all of you deal. I guess I am just so spoiled that I go to a shop every day.
I’ve been working on the little berry basket by Melissa Shirley. I can still finish the strawberries. Then do a little beading. I just hate to start the beading because I know when I go back with the other threads, they are going to keep getting caught.
This Scott Church piece has been calling my name for a while. I had to ignore it while I finished some of my homework. I love the messy beading that I started on the nest, but I need smaller beads. Size 11 beads will be overwhelming. I can still stitch the tree. I need to add a sequin in the center of the stars in the background with a cub bead holding them in place. I’ve got the beads, no sequins. I think the background needs another layer. Maybe a little Kreinik Marshmallow or Easter Grass?
Don’t forget that we have a CBK trunk show in the shop, which includes Scott Church canvases. All the canvases are 20% off, in stock and special order.
We’ve got a busy week at the shop this weekend, getting ready for Needlepoint Nation Stitch In next weekend. I’ll keep you posted!
