Love Heart, The beginning

June 27, 2012

After looking at my empty floor frame for nearly a week I went looking for something small and fun to stitch.  ( I know Bargello & Roses is still waiting in a bag…..) I can not remember a time when my floor stand stood empty for a week.  We we in Coos Bay. OR for an RV rally for 5 days, then at the Monaco service center for one day, a visit with a new great-grandson in Portland and finally we arrived in Washington yesterday.

Today was the last day of the Greater Pacific Region EGA Seminar.  It was held in downtown Tacoma, I went to see the exhibit and the store.  I used to belong to the Evergreen EGA Chapter and I ran into several friends during the lunch break.  The Exhibit was good and I recognized the names of many of the ribbon winners. Seeing all of the wonderful needlework got the juices flowing again.

This is in fact a painted canvas.  13ct…which I can do without my magnifiers 🙂 It is small, only 3 3/4″ X 4 1/4 “.  I had pulled some possible threads and I am going to pick stitches all by myself !  The dark purple is #5 pearl. I am trying a diagonal mosaic, going in opposite directions on each side of the heart. Small areas mean small stitches, another challenge.

    Jan,
    It was so good to see you at GPR Seminar 2012, even if it was for such a short time. Hopefully it won’t be another 4 years between our next time seeing one another!
