I finished this small canvas (Fabulous Flowers-Viola) last week using mostly DMC Variations threads with the purples being Gentle Art Sampler threads. I showed it to my DH who asked why I would stitch a big spider in the middle of the flower?
Finished the background yesterday and began to work on the body. I'm using a random combination of Caron Impressions 1139, 1146 and 1144 along with Caron Watercolours Almond. When I get a little higher on her body I have Impressions 1115 to add a little more creamy orange to the mix.
This is a Kirk and Hamilton canvas for my son whose dog looks a lot like this. I am almost finished with the background and the red cushion. Then I am going to get brave and dive into the body of the dog. My main problem is that while she is a terrier she is a little more golden colored and generally has longer fur.
I am a 50+ woman who enjoys various forms of needlework, including cross-stitch, needlepoint and quilting. I've even been known to sew my own draperies. I have been married for almost 30 years and have one teenaged son and one furry four-legged daughter.
