New Project: Tassels Painted Canvas

October 24, 2016


This is a small 8″ X 9″ Lee canvas. I won a daily door prize at Seminar and this was one of the choices. I have packed several bags of threads including floss, pearl and Kreink metallics. I am going to play with this like I did the eyeglass case. Choosing threads and stitches as I go.  My goal is to NOT use a lot of tent except where necessary. I had a great time playing with threads to use….always takes awhile. Playing….such fun.

I started in the upper left with the small yellow tassel. I used a small scotch stitch. I shifted the blocks side to side because there is five threads from side to side. I compensated with tent stitches on the edges. I also alternated the direction of the scotch stitches. Does that make any sense?

The top is metallic wrapped many times from side to side. I think this will be a fun, no thinking, project.

I leave very early tomorrow morning for McKinney, TX. I hope to get some stitching done on the plane. My daughter and I are going to see my grandson (her nephew) play his Senior Night football game. He is the teams QB and I think it will be his  last game.  We use any excuse to have time together.

    This is going to be super fun to watch as you bring your creativity and beautiful stitching to it.
