I apologize for being gone for so long. I had about 5 posts ready to publish, and I thought I set them up automatically to post, but obviously they did not.
The beginning of the year has brought lots of starts and one finish.
I started the Liz Lab canvas I got for Christmas.
It is going to be an exercise in "light stitching" because I am trying to capture the shading. This canvas could be a piece of art as-is, and I don't want to spoil that by trying to tent everything and having it look striped. I've stitched the lower left half of the dog and a bit of the ground. Progress is slow because of the reverse stitching that I have done and a single strand of Belle Soie silk is hard to see without light!
I started and finished this Roll Tide piece in 2013. I used Kreinik, Bella Lusso White, Neon Rays, and Gloriana in Black Cherry for the red. Roll Tide Roll!! National Champs 2012!
I am working on the Labrador Inn piece too. I want to finish this so badly to frame it and then display it! Fingers fly!
This is an all tent stitch piece that matches my Aggie stocking. I am using Planet Earth wool, which is FABULOUS! I cannot recommend it enough. This is a good piece to stitch while I am visiting my grandma. She has been in and out of the hospital and now she is in a pseudo-nursing home. I hope she gets better soon.
