I have been crazy busy with work and life...and needlepoint!!! I have been reading and researching and reading some more and stitching on this canvas, Flower In Flower Vase by Maggie & Co., using the stitch guide in the most recent issue of Needlepoint Now. I did change the background to DMC floss from the perle cotton called for, and I am doing a simple basketweave stitch instead of the fancier one they had suggested. Having a ball! The Facebook Needlepoint group is utterly fantastic. I am on there every day asking questions, commenting, and my wish list is growing seeing all of the wonderful canvases and everyone's stitching. Amazing.
I found this great canvas on Ebay for a reasonable price, and with the stitch guide as well. Cannot wait to get started on this one!
I have also been reading. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, the BEST book I have read ALL YEAR. Highly recommend. I was reading at breakfast, lunch, while making dinner, every minute I could get. I have read all three of her books and love them. I also recommend Save As Draft by Cavanaugh Lee. The whole book is told in e-mails, Facebook posts, texts. Loved it.
Until next time...
