Lee Canvas Almost Done

July 28, 2013

New Floor Stand 7-17Lee Canvas 7-27
No excuses for the delay in postings. I have been making steady progress with all the areas that are the same on the top and bottom halves. I am all done except for the circles. I just can’t seem to figure out what to do. I am about ready to “tent and forget”… I have been reading my class material from Janet Perry’s Stitch Guide class and I will go back over the information. I am sure she has a suggestion that I have missed. I guess I have “stitcher’s block” 🙂

Week before last I took my stitching friend, Winogene, to Issaquah for a visit to Threadneedle Street. It is the only needlework in the area and I try to get there at least once a summer.

This year I made a big decision to finally get a new floor stand. My 35 year old Gripit just wasn’t holding up. Funny how some screw threads strip after only 35 years of use. After much research I decided on a System 4 floor stand with frame holder. I LOVE IT ! It is so much lighter than the old one and it slides under the couch here in the motorhome. One thing I had to adjust for was the lack of a holder for the light I use. Now it is attached to the frame I am working on and that seems to be working. In the winter in Arizona I have a floor lamp so it will not be a problem.

I purchased threads for a new project at Threadneedle Street and I am very anxious to have this Lee Canvas done. My friend Winogene only needed 1 skein of floss ….. does that ever work. I forgot to mention she is 90 years old and still stitching like a pro. May I be so lucky.

I hope my next posting will be very soon with the Lee Canvas Complete.

Happy stitching

    Thanks for the introduction, via your blog, to Needle Delights. Have been in touch with Kay and will order from her. Only problem: wealth of choice. Have never been that keen on geometrics but since looking at what’s out there I’m sold. Love your Lee and all power to your friend Winogene.

      Thanks for your comment. I did in fact finish my Lee canvas today. You are the first to know. I will post about the circles soon. I do love Needle Delights. I have done several and loved each one. Kathy is great to talk to. I called her a couple of times when I was working her designs. Happy stitching. Jan
