No Flying Monkeys: The End (or is it?)

No Flying Monkeys, Complete with Flying Monkey Magnet (Accoutrement Designs)

I hope you've enjoyed watching me blog-stitch this fun Point of It All Designs piece.  It's off to the designer to be finished but I don't know yet what it will be made up as.  It will debut at the Destination Dallas show in late September.  Once I have photos, I'll show them off here.

The stitch guide is ready and sent off to the designer as well. It will be available as a free guide for any purchaser of the canvas.  If you have the No Flying Monkeys canvas in your stash, not to worry.  Just send me your email address (I'm chilly hollow at hotmail dot com) and I'll send you the guide as a PDF file at no charge.  The same deal applies if you are a shop with this in inventory.  Let me know and I'll send the PDF file for you to print out and include with the canvas when you sell it.

Thanks for coming along for the adventure!  Here's hoping the flying monkeys stay in their cages in your castle.  And before I forget, many many thanks to Hyla Hurley of Point of It All Designs for allowing me to blog-stitch this piece here.  It was great fun, Hyla!

Remember, I collected the links as I blog stitch this Point of It All Designs piece and posted them in a tab on the CH Stitch Guides blog. You can catch up on what you missed by going there--just click on the flying carpet photo to magically be transported to my other blog and then back again once you are ready to return.

    1. Melody, you didn't miss the flying monkey needle magnet--I didn't use it until the very end! The monkey wears the perfect jacket to match the canvas and I didn't want to mar it in any way in case The Point of It All Designs wants to use it on the canvas in finishing.
