Tumbling Stripes (Marilyn Owen)

Melita Glavin's ANG chapter is going to stitch Marilyn Owen's "Tumbling Stripes" as a project.  First up, Melita has to pick colors and find threads in her stash that will work, then she has to put the piece of Congress cloth she found on too large Evertites.  She shows you how to lace a side if you too have needlepoint canvas just a little too small for your stretcher bars.

Melita choose blue and yellow cotton floss for her threads.

Here is Melita's finished version, which made a lovely ornament.

Brenda is working this, too.  Like most chapter projects, it is a counted canvaswork piece, but this one is a bit unusual and quite pretty when finished.  I'll update this article as Brenda posts progress photos.

You can see larger versions of "Tumbling Stripes" on the ANG Cyberpointers' website.
