A Weekend with Mary

It's always fun when new teachers come to the beehive.  We have the opportunity to look at needlepoint through a different set of eyes!  Every teacher has their own voice.  Some teachers are lighter using Petite Silk Lamé Braid on 13ct and some are heavier using layers and layers of threads on a canvas.  There's no right or wrong.  It's just different and exciting and fun.

This past weekend we had the opportunity to have Mary Legallet of Whimsical Stitch teach two exciting projects.

The first class was an Emma Williams canvas from Melissa Shirley Designs, Passion Flowers and Birds.  Just look at all these yummy threads.  It's painted on 13ct with lots of fun spaces for stitches and techniques.


The water really is Petite Silk Lamé Braid!  Really, really on 13ct.  It looks great!
 

 Throughout the class Mary does demos of techniques you need to know.


 
We learned how to make big wonderful flowers from ribbon.

 

And of course there were beads :-)


If you would like a kit for this canvas, give us a call or order online here and we'll send it your way. 

The second project was Zecca's Royal Peeps.  So cute! 



I can barely stand how cute these peeps are.  The king on the left with the big fancy crown with his courtly night bowing to him.  LOL  Only zecca!

 There's lots of fun techniques in this canvas.  I love, love, love the bird stitches.  So much fun.  If you would like to stitch the peeps, give us a call or order online.  You know the drill.  You know we love sending goody boxes in the mail.  We pack them extra special.

Mary will be back next year.  We don't have dates or projects picked but watch for announcements, check your schedule and join the fun! 

Thank you to everyone who came to class and thank you Mary for a super fun weekend.  Hugs to Max and Lola.
