Although it has been quiet in here there has been some busy working behind the scene. I finaly tried a bit of canvas work. It took me a long time to get to grips with my new ‘recycled’ frame, I had no clue how to use it. After some messing around I figured it out and practiced a bit with different stitches. I like working on canvas and it seems to me that it might be the perfect medium for my mandalas.
For my tester I used White Royal Canvas – Mesh 18 and Anchor perle cotton #5.
My WIP Coffee menu almost became a UFO :) It was definitely time to continue and hopefully I will finish it soon. I’m just not sure if I want to stitch the border I sort of like it without…
Also I started a new project fro m LHN, Yesteryear. When I looked at my pattern stock I did not know which one to do first… so I let my hubby make a choice and he liked this one best. I will first stitch all the little borders (which is a bit boring I must admit) and then start filling in the pictures.
I’m stitching on 30ct R&R country stone with DMC.
As a contrast (as if I haven’t got enough to do ~smile~) I like to do some sewing. I saw some fun tutorials at Pink Penguin. My sewing skills are not that great but I might give the fabric basket a go. It is only in the planning I have not started yet (or might never LOL).
