To update you on where I am with projects, Autumn Leaves' basketweave is nearly done. I went shopping for trim on Monday and for beads on Tuesday, so I have most of what I need to finish the rock slab jewelry piece and the camels mini stocking. Hurrah! I will make another trip to the really big bead shop today to pick up some seed beads (hopefully) as I have an errand to run in that part of the suburbs.
I'm also getting fun information from various newsletters. Homestead Needlearts has a nice series of photos about finishing up. Isn't that ruby slippers pillow FAB?! Scroll down further and you'll see some of the new Prairie Schooler canvases. This is a XS company that is making their classic Santas available on canvas.
Janet Perry's newsletter linked to the Stitch-Its website. This is the place distributing these Santas and they say you can talk to them about doing your favorite Prairie Schooler design on NP canvas. See the following for the current available canvases and a link to the PS website to drool over more.
If you like the Kelly Clark Santas or the Melissa Shirley small ethnic ones, you'll want to check out the links.
Happy summer stitching, everyone!
