My current project and stitch guide is this picture frame from Sandy Grossman-Morris. It’s part of her Picture It! series and will make and outstanding gift. Finish it as a frame and add the face of your favorite teacher.
Don’t you just love it!
Pieces like this give you such a great opportunity to play with stitches which mimic different textures. T Stitch done with Rainbow Gallery’s Subtlety gives the textured background of construction paper on the pictures. Flair and Horizontal Gobelin make a great, bright flag. Vineyard Silk Classic makes a lovely sweater. Bath done in two directions in an hand-dyed Pearl Cotton makes a wonderful desk.
Today I’m hoping to finish the house picture and the books and get further along on the alphabet freize.
