Celebrating Charting Software with a Free Design

Ada Hayden of Eye Candy has made the transition to charting software (she uses Stitch Graph from Ursa Software) and is celebrating with a new Bargello ornament design.

Ada has four small Bargello ornaments that are being published in Needlepoint Now magazine this year.  This little bonus free chart is the fifth in the series.  Here is another version of it.  I think this looks like a tiny owl, don't you?

By the way, here is Ursa Software's website.  If you are interested in any of their products, make sure you see what computers and operating systems they will run on before you buy.

The Mystery of the Wild Salmon UPDATED

Ruth Schmuff has announced her Spring 2016 mystery class--"Wild Salmon," a painted canvas by the cross stitch and knotted miniature rug designer Teresa Layman.

The class is available in person or via mail starting in March and will have three lessons.   As Ruth works and posts progress reports on her blog, I'll update this article so you can see it all in one place.

UPDATE:  Lesson one has bubbles and borders.

Lesson two has more borders and a fish.

Lesson three is the last lesson and is all about silk ribbons!

FINAL UPDATE:  It's framed!
