My mind is a mysterious place. Brenda Stofft and I teamed up to teach a 4-day class this weekend. The class began with Brenda teaching a fabulous needle-felted winter fox. I really don’t have the words to tell you how darling that little fox is. It’s sugar and spice and just so cute.
Brenda designed a second canvas that can either be a wonderful stand alone winter needlepoint or the backdrop to Sasha, our little fox. I played with stitches, threads and a few beads of course 😉 to add depth and drama to the canvas.
The first step of the project was stitching wonderful freeform Crescents over the main mountain. This was the crescent factory, LOL. By the time you finish these crescents you can do them in your sleep. I love crescents and they seemed like a good solution to add some drama and movement to this dreamy scene.
Our little fox is in his burrow all snug. There’s lots of fun stitching there.
So many snowflakes, sparkling in the sky.
A darling snowy owl looks out from his perch.
The design is approximately 8 x 12 so it stitches quickly.
It looks great behind our little girl or on it’s own. If you would like to stitch a fun Winter canvas, here’s the link.
Check out these 9 super cute faces. Each is a bit different but all are so foxy!
Dr. Katie had the weekend off and stitched with us. Looks like she had fun.
I love these girls. Mother/daughter duo, Kathy and Katie have been customers and friends for 10 years. Thanks for coming! Thank you Brenda for designing great canvases, felting a precious fox, and allowing me to embellish the heck out of the backdrop. Thank you to everyone who came to class for joining us on this journey. Love you all!
