La Sirena

We started a new mystery class, Lulu's La Sirena, at the shop today!  I love the mystery classes.  They are fun and keep me focused on one project. (Or 4 depending upon how you count.)

Today's class was quiet and laid back.  Lulu Mypinkturtle's beautiful mermaid is already coming to life.  We stitched her face which gives her so much personality.

Her hair is flowing strands of Bouclé.

The background is a fun riff on Bargello Swirls that creates wonderful waves flowing through the sea.  If you look closely you will see that half of each swirl is worked in Petite Silk Lamé Braid and the other half is the second color of our new Color Dreams over dyed Floche.  I'm having fun with this new line of threads!

There are certain traditions that signify the start of any Mystery Class at Bedecked and Beadazzled.  

There is the limited edition snap tray from Carol Eix.  This one is super cool with the little pink trim. Love, love, love it.  Snap trays are only available to those stitching the mystery.

 There's also the fun scissor fob designed for the class.  The skeleton fish made everyone smile today.

More canvases will be arriving in a few weeks.  If you would like to join the party, give us a call at 410.296.0405 and we'll do the rest.

Now, if I still have your attention, I have a question.

I'm planning next year's mystery classes.  Traditionally I do several non seasonal followed by a Fall-Halloween and a Winter canvas.  What do you prefer?  Should I stick with that format or do you prefer all non seasonal.  There are so many great canvases;  I want to stitch them all!

Leave me your comments as to you preference and I'll take it from there.

See you soon.
