Challenge Completed

August 15, 2016

I completed my chapter Summer Challenge. Yeah ‼️ I am getting excited about the upcoming ANG Seminar in New Orleans. I have only one canvas in progress now. It is my “Needlework” project. My eyeglass case is at the finisher and with the Challenge done I am ready for my two class projects at Seminar.

I am taking “For The Love Of Chocolate” with Nancy Cucci. It is a three day class. It will be heaven to take classes. My second class is “Beets” with Jennifer Reifenberger . I have her “Carrots” done and I have the kit for ” Radishes” All three will hang in my kitchen. 

For the rest of this week I will just poke along on my “Needlepoint” canvas. There is lots of back stitching and tent to keep me busy. I am beginning to think about a background…….anyone have any suggestions?

I will be posting during seminar. WordPress seens to be working pretty good these days so I will try to share my experience with those who are not able to attend.

    You will love Nancy Cucci. Our ANG had her here last year and we all loved her. I even got my green beeded project done (no framed yet)! It was a wonderful class. Maybe will see you there. My daughter and I are taking three classes and can’t wait. My stitching supplies are packed.

      I have had a class with Nancy before and I am looking forward to this one. I love chocolate….who doesn’t 😀

    It looks great and I love the center stone. Any chance you’ll give a graph of the stitch variations you used?

      Sorry, I am not graphing this design. It was my first try at stitch variations on my own. I basically tried different width and length. I simply tried until I like how it looked. In some instances I just changed the threads and that made a different look. The shiny thread is Patina…it was a bear to work with but it looks neat.

    I love Nancy Cucci’s classes. I took her “Hearts” class some years ago as well as her Autumn Treasures” class at Seminar in Philadelphia. I know you will have a wonderful time. Have fun!
