Our current Mystery Class is the Sirens by David Galchutt. With every lesson of a mystery class there is one element, one technique, that is the star of the show. In the third lesson of the Sirens, the star is the fabulous gold ruffle down the center mermaid’s body. It adds dimension to her and almost makes you believe the water is gliding past her.
She is framed by very pretty seaweed on her left and more rivulets of water stitched with Petite Treasure Braid. I really am loving that thread these days.
As long as we are talking water, we also added another wavy pattern to the blue bubble at the bottom. The fish are going to love swimming here.
You’ve been waiting for me to add beads to this canvas, right? Well they landed on the border! I love this color and brick beading is so fun and gratifying. It moves along quickly.
So, here we are at the end of lesson three. Two more lessons to go. I like where we are heading and hope you do too! Wait until you see what’s next.
We have more canvases arriving in August. Now is the time to claim one of the canvases if you would like to stitch your very own Sirens. Lead time for canvases these days is very long. The canvas will come complete with stitchguide and I’ve even been making videos for some of the trickier bits. Here’s the link to order.
