I had another fun charting job come my way.
This time it was from Peggi at Tapestry Fair. I met Peggi while attending the Phoenix TNNA Market this past January 2012. Nice lady.
I know you are familiar with the Tapestry Fair line of canvases. Most recently, you have seen blogging by Jane from Chily Hollow about the Manuel Salas "Day of the Dead" canvas she is stitching; distributed by Tapestry Fair. Here's their website. Take a look all of their wonderful designs.
Your LNS can order any of them for you. http://www.tapestryfair.com
Peggi was needing me to chart some icons for the upcoming class being taught by Linda Corirossi called The Painted Elephant.
This information came from the Tapestry Fair blog:
|The Painted Elephant (#636) by Tapestry Fair|
Class taught by Linda Corirossi
Here is a summary of the class:
Choose your colors, raid your jewelry box for bling, and join Linda Corirossi for a series of classes to "paint" your own elephant.
The class includes a line drawn canvas, stitch planning "map", and a stitch guide including picture graphs to decorate your elephant. With Linda's guidance, each elephant will be exotic and original.
The first elephant class will be help October 19th, 20th and 21st at Family Arts Needlework in Phoenix, AZ.
To contact Linda about giving this class at your shop, call (847) 942-2120 or email: firstname.lastname@example.orgSo, exactly what did I do? Peggi sent me several pages of graph paper with icons in colored squares. I made a graph grid in the computer, and then colored the boxes in the same sequence; creating these endearing icons. It was a new task to learn and was fun doing so. When I was finished, a 4-page PDF of the 27 icons/components was ready to become part of the stitch guide.
