Today was day Three of the Big Event. I’m toast. We’re having a great time. It was definitely a day of Ah Ha Moments. See, Suzanne had one too.
Muskoot Farm took a major turn today. I ripped almost everything out. I had put in a bit of this and a bit of that but looking at it today the colors just weren’t vibrant enough. So, back to the drawing board. With Tony’s help and just about every thread line in play we finally found new colors! So we start anew tomorrow. It might be a long time before we see this one complete or even in progress but I love our selections.
Beth Robertson had the middle table today. I’m excited to see what she added to each of those canvases.
Suzanne gets our table tomorrow. She’s loads of fun.
Take a close look at these trees. They look so cool. Sue is doing a fabulous job on them. Lots of needles with different threads but the perfect angle on each stitch makes them look so real.
This photo doesn’t do the stitching on this canvas justice. It’s the dog lady stocking from my line and her hat, her hair and her collar are too fabulous. MaryAnn is doing a great job. The collar looks like persian lamb.
I know, this canvas has lots of little details and plants but look at each one closely. The tree on the left is Twisted Lazy Daisy Stitches. There’s Twisted Stem and Cast On Stitches. Very cool.
Mary is working out the checks on this Leigh canvas so that the stitches she wants to use fit. It’s going to be great. Love the couched borders.
I posted this canvas yesterday, but now you can see how great this purple flower looks. Love the stitch, and you know I’m going to love it even more with the beads added.
All of the teachers are incredibly talented and giving with their time. Thank you all!
Time for bed for me. Until tomorrow………

I'm amazed that just as I log on in the evening you have just posted—it's 12:30am there. I don't know how you're keeping up. All the canvases are wonderful and I am sure everyone is just thrilled to have the experts guide them through. But coordinating the class, taking the class, a shop to run, etc. Mercy!It's easy to see you've done a magnificant job on this one Ruth. Congratulations.
I am really enjoying following thios class – I' wish I was close so that I could attend.
Can I ask what stitch and fibers was used on the Purple/Brown flower on the Charley Harper and also how you made the collar (which fiber/stitch combO) on the dog walker look like persian lamb?
I have canvases that I could incorporate these items.

What were the demonstrations for day 3?
Everyone is having such a wonderful time. I love looking at the canvas, and at seeing the faces of friends who are there. Ruth, thank you for the blogs. I know you must be dead tired. Do you have a photo of the teachers' signatures on your stitching bee? (((Stitching hugs!!!)))

Hi all. Thanks for the warm wishes. We had a great time. We have all kinds of fun things planned in the next few years. Watch the website and maybe you can come for a roadtrip!

Ev, the collar on the lady that looks like persian lamb is Colonial Knots worked with Gloriana Silk.

Everything looks great! They say that "two heads are better than one". I guess all of the heads you have in the class are even better than that! Keep us posted!
