Why is the needlepoint world in the fastest Time Warp?
Delta.com sent me my reminder to "check in"... what?? Really? I just started stitching! What do you mean I have to leave?
As you can imagine... This has been a fun day.
First, I selected my canvas. After all, it was a canvas embellishment class with Brenda Hart. (Come on Robin, get with it!)
Luckily, In Stitches has an awesome selection of canvases. So many... Wait. What do I see?
A Charley Harper? OMG. Be still my heart. Bam pulled it off the wall, taped it, attached it stretcher bars... And then it was my turn. Gulp. #bucketmoment
Enter Stage right: HC-G164... Gift Rapt.
Don't you love the name?
My turn with Brenda. She discusses the raccoons. Then, she begins the borders. I am taking furious notes. I pull her suggested threads Wow. Love the look.
Many of her inspirations came from her books. You have them, don't you. If not, order them from your LNS. Here are the titles:
- Favorite Stitches by Brenda Hart
- Favorite Stitches II by Brenda Hart
- Stitches for the Millennium by Brenda Hart
After lunch were more packages stitches. I am now looking at her books in a whole new light.
Also want a fun stitch? Check out F-106 in Jo Christensen's book.
Class was over. Purchases were made. I reviewed my notes and my new stash. Can't wait to stitch again.
Tomorrow is my last day. Until then... Robin
