The CBK trunk show ends this week. If you’ve missed “Suzie’s picks” on Facebook, here are some of my favorite pieces from the trunk show.
All the canvases are 20% off and include a FREE stitch guide!
I think this piece would make the most beautiful pillow, inset in a periwinkle fabric. A cool stitch for the off white border . . .a little ribbon work (nothing over the top), maybe just some gathered stitch and French and Colonial knots. And voila!
You know I’ve got a think for penguins. They’re just too cute! I see Rhodes stitches in the sky for the snowflakes, maybe repousse for the branch.
I just love the colors in this piece. And how about the magnet? LOVE it!
Scott Church pieces crack me up. Each one is cuter than the next. I didn’t put it in the picture, but as I look at it while I’m typing, there should be some Flair in this piece to make the snow on the branch with a gathered stitch. The hats could be done in Kalem or a wrapped kind of embroidery stitch I often use to make scarfs, hats and sweaters.
Let me start with I have no affinity for French Bulldogs. But I love the colors in this piece and he’s just too cute. You could do a really cool open background stitch with a large pattern, which makes a background really interesting without overpowering it if you use a thin thread like Impressions.
I can’t take credit for this piece. Mary Susan stitched this a few years ago. The finishing on it makes me want to stitch it!
Take a look at the CBK website and give us a call if there’s something that catches your eye. We’re full of creative ideas for these pieces!
