I sure am one lucky lady. I get to play (and work) in a needlepoint shop every day. I have a great husband and the most awesome little boy in the world!
They did good this year!
On Saturday I treated myself to a little something from the shop that I’ve had my eye on for a while.
Ok . . . Maybe not so little.
Only two tries to get the sky! I’m getting better at this. Down from my usual five tries!
I made up this sand stitch. I wanted it to look like the swirly zig-zag pattern at the water’s edge. Speaking of the Water’s Edge, I am anxiously awaiting the new design for the retreat in October
. It will probably show up today. Now I’ll have to stop by the shop to see if it’s there. I really can’t avoid going in on my day off, can I?
Becki suggested this water stitch that she learned from David McCaskill. I was skeptical at first but it looks amazing!
I hope everyone had a great mother’s day. Don’t forget to sign up for Cynthia Thomas’ classes in June!
Hi Suzie! What a great Mother’s Day! As you know, I love this canvas, too, and can’t wait to see what you do with it. I may “need” the canvas and stitch guide when you’re done. Beautiful!
Great minds think alike – I’m using that sky stitch on the “U Go Girl” canvas! Was thinking of carrying all the way thru but may need to change for the road/water/whatever it is that she’s driving on!
see you soon!
Holy cow! ~ I think the water looks wonderful
And the rest of my comment was that the overdyes compliment and don’t fight the piece ~ beautifully done!
Love the colors in this piece, Who is the designer? Barb
What you did with the sand is amazing!!
