Cross Stitch Magic

A continuation of all the wonderful things I'm learning in Karen's class...

cross stitch on cloth using waste canvas

cross stitch on a vintage hanky that was dyed with avocado skins

damp stretching my sampler piece to remove all the wrinkles
My sampler piece will be turned into a small pillow. It measures about 9" x 10".  I'm anxious to try the cross stitching on some of the silk velvet that is on the next piece I prepared.

Deanna, your hankie is gorgeous! I love how you incorporated so many stitches and details into one piece. It is going to make a beautiful pillow.

Love your sampler piece Deanna, but I'm concerned about the fires.
Didn't know that, just learned about it over at Jude's : take care there all of you !!!

I've been thinking about you each time I see the news Deanna, and so stopping by to say that. And now to say this new work is so beautiful. Thinking good thoughts for you.

I so appreciate all your comments and your good thoughts concerning the fires in central texas. I'm feeling calmer today and hoping all will be well here and for others all over with so much tragedy in their lives.
