|Chris Tirey Does Lani Ballgown|
I don't know about you, but I love stitching people. So when I noticed these photographs posted on Facebook last month, I wanted to share the fabulous hair and clothing that the masters of needlepoint embellishment are stitching these days. Starting in alphabetical order, what you see above is Chris Tirey of Nimble Fingers in Houston stitching a Lani ball gown. The light coverage background, the random placement of sequins for sparkle and the masterful bow all make this a wonderful piece.

|Kathleen Stitching Santa Using Mark Young's Guide|
Mark Young of Labors of Love is also a master of design and stitching. In the photo above you see Kathleen's stitching Labors of Love's Red Stand Up Santa using Mark's stitch guide. The beard is a masterpiece of shape and movement and contrasts nicely with Santa's clothing. This piece is a four-sided tear drop that finishes into a Christmas standup. You can see all the pieces on the Labors of Love website.

By the way, this is the 2017 Limited Edition figure from Labors of Love. There are only ten. Place your order now.
Hope you enjoyed seeing what masters of embellished needlepoint canvas can do with the human figure.
