As I mentioned in a previous post, I have started this piece from the Rocky Mountain Region 2008 Seminar again. It is a two canvas project: Santa on one and a garland on another. Well Santa is all done, except for the background. Now on to the second canvas- the garland. You can see where it will go and she had us basketweave in green over the white canvas.
I think I am moving quite along on this partly because I stitch almost every evening for 3 - 5 hours and because it is not too big. The Santa is 5 3/4" x 7" on 10 x11 inch stretcher bars. It has been quite fun, although a bit tricky on the coat in places. As you see she has it slant in different directions on each side. Well she only charted the right side and said to reverse it for the left. The stitch for the sleeves was tricky for me to figure out at first. The rest of the coat was not as difficult to figure out and I am still enjoying stitching it.
That's it for now!
