Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there.
What an amazing day we are going to have in Austin. Our days have been so beautiful lately. We did get some much needed rain on Thursday which woke everything up and settled the dust down a bit. The mornings have been cool and the days not too hot. I hope these cool days continue and the heat is slow to come.
Today's Share a Stitch is another combination stitch. We have combined a Double Cross and a Straight Rice Stitch to create this very tactile stitch. Use a Petite Silk Lame for the Double Cross and a subtle over dyed thread, either silk or cotton, for the Rice Stitch. If you don't want sparkle to your stitch use a Soie Perle or Petite Princess Perle.
If you have not visited the Web Store lately, we have loaded a whole slew of canvas just uploaded. We will be loading more throughout the week.
I will be loading the 2014 Canvas Enhancement Schedule for Tony Minieri tomorrow.
Lastly, but certainly not least, Happy Mothers Day to all Mom's.
As a tribute to mine, I am posting some of her Needlepoint and Paintings. Her first love was painting. She did not start to Needlepoint until she moved to Austin in 1998.
I miss you Momma!
