Laurie and I had Amy focus on the Funky Fantasy Flowers that we bought ~ it inspired Jill to go home and purchase the set for herself ~ why does that delight me so much?? Amy had some great ideas for interesting techniques and stitches for the flowers and I think we ended up with guides for all but three of the canvasses. Laurie and I have already knocked out one each, and we are anxious to see Jill's first floral fantasy flower! Pam worked on a Ewe and I house (most of the time) and took the final few stitches in her John Johansen Pig ~ it is amazing. Mary worked diligently on one of her Ewe and I house scenes. Laurie, Mary, and I all got to pick up our Tudor's canvas and first kit. That was fun also! As usual, we had a great time and look forward to the next time we can get away and stitch together!
As I mentioned, I finished the first of the flowers from the Funky Fantasy Flower series. I am waiting on the background as I want to coordinate the background on the series when I get to the end, I think. They will be different shades of green. Here is the website photo of the series. I will post a photo of the one that I completed tomorrow!
Funky Fantasy Flowers
Was so excited to get two more of my eggs back from Pam. I am happy with the way that they turned out! I really loved stitching "From Russia with Love"!
I have finished with the first kit of The Tudors series. It was the "Anne of Cleeves" section.
So, I think we all know what this means ~ yes the dreaded stocking must hit the System 4 yet again! Pam tried to kick start me this week by offering to add some of the nebulous boughs on the background. Hopefully, I can work up the effort to hit it hard! No promises!
Sleep well, gentle readers, may visions of canvasses dance through your heads!
