So the other night I had the brilliant idea to present a stitching challenge to Aggie. What was I thinking? I had just received the Victorian Caroler backdrop by Kathy Schenkel that has been exclusive to Wellesly Needlepoint. Aggie bought it last year but hadn’t stitched it. I thought it would be fun to see how differently we stitch it. But then I had to take it a step farther and make it into a race.
For those of you who don’t know Aggie, she is a dear friend of mine who I’ve been stitching with for years. She works at the shop on Saturdays and is an immensely talented stitcher. (Wait till you see her peacock piece from Maggie. It’s an upcoming class).
I will be posting pics of my progress. I’m sure some of you are thinking that Aggie will see what I’m doing. Not to worry, Aggie doesn’t read the blogs.
Enough blogging. Gotta get stitching. Aggie is going to get this done by February 1st since it is her Bash Your Stash piece. Only problem is, I feel like stitching the Hawaiian Nativity backdrop. Hmm . . . a world tour.
I like that sky. Just left Aggie who was going home to stitch. And had her canvas with her at work (lunch hour) .
No Hawaiian Nativity for you!!’!
Aggie, Sorry I missed your visit with Susan. Would loved to have seen you both.
