At a Chaparral trunk show for Petei, I completed my Marie Antoinette with a Louis XVI.
He is very handsome! A perfect complement to Marie
I aslo acquired a 5th figure for my patriotic set- Ben Franklin
Then in early February, I spotted in Dallas at the Needlepoint store on Lover's Lane, this &more canvas! I could not pass it up. I have seen the Texas team canvases, but I thought it was so perfect for my dad that I had to buy it. It was actually lying on a table like someone had picked it out to buy it and then did not. I actually had to ask the couple standing near it if they had intended to buy it. It was fate!
So far I have made a lot (compared to how much stitching I have done over the past 8 months) progress.
My sister took a trip to Boston this summer, and brought me this lovely canvas! I saw the price tag however, and I don't know if it's just me, but some canvases are getting outrageous. This one was almost $200. I have a hard time spending lots and lots of money on a canvas when it just seems so out of the ballpark price wise. I feel like a lot of Melissa Shirley's are that way too. Here is the canvas that I probably would not have purchased but it is very beautiful and I am glad that I have it. I would not trade all of the thought and effort that she made to get this for the world. I can't wait to start it.
