This past week was fabulous. It was very successful from a stitching perspective; I also managed to complete my canvas work project, "Treasured Beginnings" by Carolyn Mitchell, but I also had a lot of other fun. Thursday I spent shopping with my sister, we spent the afternoon visiting antique and consignment shops both in Oakville and in Hamilton, and last night I spent at the Boat Show with my husband. We didn't buy the 1.9 million dollar yacht that everyone had to view, but who goes to a show & doesn't get carried away? We did find some nice hanging Air chairs. It's a recliner that hangs from a tree or joist. I can't wait 'til summer. It will be fabulous to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon reading (or snoozing) in one of these.
shop for February & March 2013. This and many of her models will be on display and for sale (discounted during these two months). This particular design I will also run as a beginner canvas workshop on either February 16th or March 2nd (if interested let me know which day would be best). The class will cover reading a canvas work chart, padded gobelin stitch, rice stitch, two-way flat stitch, four way mosaic stitch, double straight cross stitch, hungarian stitch, and basketweave. I will also cover laying multiple strands, and working with perle cotton and metallic threads.
