Fall Furries

Oooh.  Our playful squirrel is complete.  Love him!!

Thank you Sandra Vargas for such a fun design to stitch.

Today was the final class of this mystery.  We stitched all the fun little details that really brought the piece to life.

We embellished and embellished some more.  Not too much of any one thing to get bored.  We know my attention span.

Acorns with beaded caps and berries with leaves.......

The dragonfly has always reminded me of a piece of jewelry.  It is now embellished to look like a piece of jewelry.  Crystals and pearls are never a bad idea.

Maybe one day there will be a companion to our Playful Squirrel.  He needs a playmate, don't you think?

In the second lesson of this mystery we stitched the background.  The stitch is a blackwork pattern that allowed the beautiful painting to show through. You could stitch it totally randomly as I did, or create an all over pattern as Carol did.  Works both ways.  Thanks for sharing Carol.

My brain is already on the next project.  The haunted house mystery that starts in two weeks.  The wheels are turning on this one.  Gotta keep changing it up.

It's not too late to join the fun.  Give us a call and we'll sign you up.

While I was teaching today and shipping boxes of canvases to shops, the Dallas cash and carry tradeshow was in full swing.  This year's theme was Stitcher's in Wonderland.  Megan was manning my room and saying hi to all the shop owners for me.

Here she is with Caroline from Carol Eix Designs (wait until you see the snap tray Carol designed for the Halloween mystery.  I love it. )  These are two of the cutest Alices in Wonderland you will ever meet.  Carol Eix was next door to our room so I'm sure they were all having lots of fun.
Love you all
