Playing hooky.

Yes, I have been working on the Halloween Candied Apple instead of Dev L. Mann.  You will see more on this canvas in a couple of weeks.  So now I will be returning to the Dev L. Mann.

I want to share a tip with you.  I have, for some years now, been using hair tape to temporarily control threads on my canvas.  I have just started using this Scotch Matte Finish Removable Tape for that.  It doesn't get gummy like the hair tape does.



Also, while stitching all of the beads on Sarcoph A. Gus, I started using this Thimble pad to push the needle up to the top of the canvas.  I had some that I had purchased years ago when I was doing some quilting.  I was thrilled to see that we stock them at Amy's Golden Strand.  So these are a couple of tools that enhance my stitching experience.  Never mind that I just love stitching toys!

I'm going to be working on a computer project for my husband this week.  So I may not get back to the Dev L. Mann till next week.  See you then.
