Vegas Nights The Beginning
Yesterday was a great day. I met Liz Morrow at Stitcher’s Paradise in Las Vegas. She brought her portfolio and I got to see her new designs in person. I had already purchased her Vegas Nights which she stitched in red. I loved the design but wanted to change the colors (what are the odds of that 🙂 ) and it was such a treat to have her help me fill out the colorway that I wanted to do.
After time at the LNS Liz and I went to a Wonderful greek restraurant for lunch. We visited for over two hours. It was my first time meeting Liz and we sure had a great time. Her designs can be seen at her website www.lizartneedlepoint.com and there is a link to her blog in my blogroll. Last year I did her Bargello Sampler and Vegas Nights is another bargello project.
When I got back to the MH I couldn’t resist getting all the threads into baggies, cutting and taping canvas (eggshell) and getting it on my stretcher bars. Then who can resist taking those first few stitches. I read the instructions all the way through then picked up my needle. By bedtime I had the first row of the border done. the design size is 6″ X 13″.
We traveled from Vegas to Ely, NV today and tonite I will recount all the border just to make sure BEFORE I all the additional rows.
