Happy 4th of July!

Christmas in July!

What better way to celebrate our nation's birthday then by celebrating Christmas.  Hmmm, maybe I have my holidays confused :-)

No, matter.  The first lesson of our Holiday Mystery with a Twist has shipped!!!  All those lovely Melissa Shirley Christmas Village canvases are on their way to your home.


Here's your first kit - a large project bag for threads and a mini one for beads.  They hold all the necessary supplies to stitch the sky!  I decided we should stitch the sky in all it's blue-ness first.  It's a big area and better to get it over with early.

The sky needed to be a small stitch and as the canvas is sort of whimsical and not realistic I decided that a fun pattern was okay for the sky.  We have a tiny check pattern.


You know I love beads, and if you need a mini bead bag for the beads in the project this is going to be a beady one.  The moon is beaded in a fun mix of white beads.


Puffs of smoke billow into the sky.


 The reindeer prances on a blue path across the canvas.


It's a good chunk of the canvas complete and ready for the embellishment to follow.  Next up we'll play with color and maybe stitch a house!

Here's wishing you a safe and happy 4th of July.
