cover photoI’ve been hard at work on this canvas and stitch guide for quite a while- and now here they are, just in time for Halloween!

coverThis Pajamas and Chocolate canvas was painted so well that the stitches almost picked themselves! I used lots of glittery threads and beads (which are optional in the stitch guide, if you don’t like working with them).  My favorite stitches are the ones I used for the bark, the grass, and the moon. There are over 25 stitches represented in the finished canvas!

stitchesI had lots of help in putting this stitch guide together- a big thank you to Deborah Forney and Cynthia Thomas (both national needlepoint teachers) and my daughter Liz. I’ve finally “got it”!

You can see the canvas I started with here.
