It's official. I love painted canvas. BUT! I have discovered that I am a stitcher that simply MUST have a stitch guide.
I have a really nice collection of canvases in my stash, and I love pawing through them and playing with threads, but they just intimidate the living h-e-double-toothpicks outta' me. Then I get all frustrated and put them away with a lot of heavy sighing and disgust that I'm not capable of executing the visions in my head.
So I've ordered a few stitch guides for a few canvases so that I can start to ENJOY my stash. (Hmmmm. Enjoyment of one's stash. Who knew?)
This baby is almost complete. Only the background and copper accents to go. The blocks turned out really cool, with lots of texture and various stitches. I used DMC floss for this, but I can imagine that other threads would have given it even more dimension.
Today I'm going to go through that Autumn basket (yet again). I have a great Shepherd's Bush "Into the Night" kit that methinks needs some startin'!
