It was tongue in cheek confession time on FB this week. There was a huge discussion on how much decorative stitching one needs to put into each piece of painted canvas. OR...do you need to do any, 'What's wrong with just Tent stitching an entire piece??' I enjoyed reading the comments, then decided for myself that life was just getting too serious and had to [in my humble way] interject some humor.
I see nothing wrong with Tent stitching an entire piece as I love it myself. It's very meditative for me, plus, there is the aspect of being able to hold an ongoing conversation or watch a show. Wish I could figure out how to read...I know, books on tape Kim...but I'm not a fan. I like holding a real book.
Anyway, all kidding aside, I've spoken up before about Basketweave/Continental aka Tent stitch. You know I love it. I just can't teach a full day & a half class on it to a room full of stitchers that want to learn something new to them. Hence, this latest design is chock full of texture, different threads and yes, there will be beads.
So, lookout all of you wonderful members of the Huntsville Big Spring Chapter ANG, I'm back! And this is all just for you!
