A small Jean Smith canvas

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?

I kinda liked the wrapped stem stitch!

Petei cubscout

Ever so long ago, my son was a cubscout and I was a den leader. I started this Petei canvas back then but it got pushed aside. Now I am trying to get it finished up.

Here's an update to my Jean Smith canvas from last year's stitching retreat.

This is a close-up of the upper right corner.

Furry Girl

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.

Currently Stitching

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.
