I give you Rose Bliss designed and taught by Kay Cline for the September 30, 2006 meeting of the Carolinas ANG (American Needlepoint Guild). It is on 12"x 12" sage green 18 count mono canvas. If I recall correctly there was a blue version as well as the green. It uses Impressions, Mandarin Bamboo Floss, DMC floss and pearl cotton and some Kreinik braids. Lots of fun stitches and layering.
I seem to have unconsciously and now consciously picked up older Works in Progress (WIPs) which are more like UFOs (UnFinished Objects) to work on lately. So next on my stitching frame is Lucky Gecko by Debbie Stiehler. It is a biggie on 15" x 17" sandstone congress cloth. All I have left is some background stitches on the upper right area and lower left area, beads on the Gecko (including eyes) and Concho metal disks for the corners. So, I am about done!!! It uses overdyed french wool, pearl cotton, cotton floss, rainbow linen and ribbon. I am not sure when I took this class, but I know I was in North Carolina and it is copyrighted 2003 and I was living in Raleigh then, so it is possible this is when I started it. I have since learned to be better about dating stuff - silly me thought I would just finish everything when I took the class!!!!
That is about all for now!!!
