It has been a whirlwind of a holiday season already and doesn't look like its going to slow down. That's not necessarily a bad thing :-) I like to be busy.
We area 90% moved into our new digs and unpacked. YAY!
We had the two day Thanksgiving class Who Ate all the Hor d’Oeuvres? there this weekend. The space is happy and fun and everything I could have wished for.
I love the art on the wall; Karl painted it for me so that it would match our windows from the store.
Here's my little Blue Bird. I love the stitch on his tummy. Thank you Meredith Willet for that one. So fun. The paint shows through adding to the depth and dimension.
The Blue Jay/Woodpecker is really my favorite. If you look at the original canvas, there's lots of shading and colors in there. I wanted to keep it all. I selected an open stitch worked a little row of white and then simply changed colors in the pattern to match what was painted underneath. Super fun and quite effective.
Look who stopped in to be my teaching assistant, Sheena!! So good to see her. She's an awesome stitcher and great friend.
Here's the class kit with all the goodies. Look at all those threads! If you would like a kit, give us a call at 410.296.0405 or order online and we'll send one out. We're waiting for more canvases to arrive but we're happy to put your name on one.
Happy Cyber Monday.
P.S. With any luck, I'm back on blogging and stitching track. Next Mystery Class will be announced in a few days.
