I’m Back!

You’ve probably been wondering why I haven’t blogged in the last week or so.  I was enjoying some much needed R & R with my family in Block Island.  So relaxing!  Just what I needed.  Lots of sleep and lots of stitching.

So, tada! I finished!  Summer at the Shore is complete for the retreat.

Just have to put together the stitch guide and I’m ready to go. (If only).



Every hydrangea in the garden is a different technique.  Some are a variation on a theme so you won’t lose your mind.  Or you can pick your favorites and just use those techniques.  Remember, this is my interpretation and GUIDE.



I love the whale.  Now I have to figure out what I did!





Yes, that is basketweave you see.  I avoid it at all costs.  But sometimes it’s just what a canvas calls for.





A little shaped needle weaving anyone?


Canvas: $160

Thread Kit: $188

Stitch Guide included with the purchase of the kit

Kits will ship October 21st after the retreat.  Canvas is available separately from the complete kit.
