I have spent months working on Galaxy and looking at Far Horizon. I am sure most of you have had a project that has an area that you are not looking forward to attempting. This is the reason that Far Horizon hasn’t been finished sooner. Just to refresh your memory. I won this Tish canvas at the ANG seminar in 2008. It was a small opportunity basket and I really wanted the canvas. When I got it I thought what now. Painted canvases are not my forte……but I loved this design. Last year I decided that I would take the canvas embelishment class at seminar. Mine was the smallest canvas in the class. I loved the class and came home all excited about finishing it. The HAIR is what has held me back. I have worried about how to acheive the look I want. It will make or break the whole canvas (in my opinion). When I finally stitch it, it will probably take an hour at most. I can’t tell you how many hours I have worried about this.
When I first put this canvas on my blog I called it Indian Woman. I had forgotten that there actually was a stitch guide that came with it. This stitch guide is so old that it was handwritten !!!! In going through my “to do” stack a couple of months ago I came across the stitch guide and the information that the correct title of the design is Far Horizon.
I now have the project in my studio and I am determined to get it finished ! I have a Betty Chen Louis class in a few weeks and I would like to have this one done. There are a lot of beads (the whole coller) so I have my work cut out for me. Yesterday I finished the black pot and now I am working on the sand.
