Christmas in July!
What better way to celebrate our nation’s birthday then by celebrating Christmas. Hmmm, maybe I have my holidays confused 🙂
No, matter. The first lesson of our Holiday Mystery with a Twist has shipped!!! All those lovely Melissa Shirley Christmas Village canvases are on their way to your home.
Here’s your first kit – a large project bag for threads and a mini one for beads. They hold all the necessary supplies to stitch the sky! I decided we should stitch the sky in all it’s blue-ness first. It’s a big area and better to get it over with early.
The sky needed to be a small stitch and as the canvas is sort of whimsical and not realistic I decided that a fun pattern was okay for the sky. We have a tiny check pattern.
You know I love beads, and if you need a mini bead bag for the beads in the project this is going to be a beady one. The moon is beaded in a fun mix of white beads.
Puffs of smoke billow into the sky.
The reindeer prances on a blue path across the canvas.
It’s a good chunk of the canvas complete and ready for the embellishment to follow. Next up we’ll play with color and maybe stitch a house!
Here’s wishing you a safe and happy 4th of July.
