|Still waiting to have the stems and leaves stitched.|
What I have been working on is the Frank Lloyd Wright design needlepoint case from long, long ago. When last you saw it, it looked like this:
There's a tiny panic in the back of my mind about what I'll stitch when this is finished. What if I'm not ready to pick up the embroidery yet? I only have blank canvases to stitch, nothing preprinted. When I get the way I am at the moment I can't make color or design decisions. Ack! What I would really like is to figure out a way to use some of Nancy's wonderful hand dyed floss to fill in that blank canvas. You know, just pick up a color, thread the needle, and stitch. No marking of the canvas, no counting threads in order to get started. I've had a couple of ideas for that in the past, I'm just not confident enough to begin. By the way, Nancy is holding her annual Christmas in July give away right now. You can pop over to her blog, sign up to follow her if you haven't already, and put your name in the hat for several different prizes. She's willing and able to ship overseas so don't let that stop you. I reduce my chances of winning anything by telling you this but I really would like you to have a chance to experience her floss. 😊
I give you fair warning that I'll probably not make it around to see the progress everyone else is making on their various needlework projects, nor respond to comments. I assure you however, that it will be well worth your while to take the tour if you have an interest in anything worked with needle and thread.
