Today's stitch is a Bargello Variation that would be great for sky, mountains or even clothing. Use 2 or 3 threads of the same color but a different texture such as metallic, wool and silk.
Now for some fun news. There is a new book out and it is AWESOME!
Stitches a' la Carte
Written by Lynda Richardson of Dream House Ventures, it is a collection of background stitches. Very well thought out, it is obvious by the stories she shares with us that she has but her heart and soul into this book. Call the store to order 512-451-6931. ($32.00)
I am using one of the stitches, "Arabian Nights" on the background of the 12 Days of Christmas Trio that I have started.
No I did not finish the Paisley Pumpkin like planned. Turkey Work and Beading is all that is left. Today I will bounce back and forth between the Pumpkin and 12 days today and hopefully today will be the day.
I have ordered 20 canvas and plan to ship out late October. Any orders after this 20 are gone will ship out in December or January.
Canvas and Guide $175.00
