A finish!
 
Yaaay! I finished my Victorian House, washed & ironed it and dropped it
off at Michael's, where the frame has been waiting for about 2 weeks. I
should get it back in a day or 2. Will post pics of it in rctnp next week.

Next up: Independence Day, a canvas piece of fireworks. I put the
first stitches in that at lunch today.

I'm doing it on black canvas.

It's not going to be as portable as my cs, so I'll be starting a small
travel piece, Mini Spring sampler by Teresa Wentzler:

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

If worries can cure your sickness, prolong your life, or replace
happiness, then go ahead and worry! If they can't, why worry?

Enjoy every moment of your life...there is no second chance.

course.

Yes, Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.

I have always loved that piece. Should look great on black.

Awesome Joan! I can't wait to see the pics of your finished piece. I love looking at people's finishes, and it gives me all sorts of ideas about how to improve my own stitching/fabric selection/thread selections.

Love both of the charts you'll soon be starting. I remember when you got the fireworks chart and think that one is especially beautiful. I have one canvaswork piece going at this time and I think it's going to be my last...canvaswork is just too hard on my hands. It's a beautiful medium though.

I just finished this small snail for my son as an Xmas present:

This is the piece I started a couple days ago. I'm using a 32ct raw linen with a strong gold sparkle in it, and boy is it hard to stitch on. That sparkle has a way of confusing the eye. It's really pretty though.

I'm also debating starting a flosstube channel, but I remain undecided. While my stitching skills are ok, my tech skills are seriously lacking, and I think the learning curve might be very high. Is anyone here a flosstuber?
