Friday Finishing: Spooky!

Needle in a Haystack has some wonderful Halloween pieces just back from the finisher. They've posted photos on their Facebook page.

Although this isn't spooky, big cats are a little frightening, don't you think?  Ridgewood just got new tuffet canvases in the shop (I think they are from Trubey but I am not certain) and shows off a finished photo of them made up into a tuffet footstool.  Fascinating!  It's perfect for those who are wild of heart or who have a den that Hemingway would feel at home in.

A Shot of Color From Mystery with a Twist

Ruth Schmuff is starting her newest Mystery with a Twist class. This is a mail order class that spans a long period, with periodic updates (and wonderful packages) from Bedecked and Beadazzled.  There's no rush to finish one lesson before the next arrives, so you can relax and play along with the stitch guide, learning interesting techniques and using different threads and bling of various kinds. (You know Ruth--she's all about the Bling!)

Ruth is using Zecca's Why Fit In? bird canvas for this Mystery with a Twist, introducing shots of color with overdyes and sequins and I think I see some holographic Kreinik in those baby blue eyes....

It's the perfect antidote to the horrible cold.
