If you ever want to stitch a metal surface….

This is a great stitch to use if you should have something in your  handpainted canvas that is metal – especially hammered metal.  I used it on Scheherazade, one of Melissa Shirley’s Wild Women series. Amy Bunger wrote a stitch guide for the piece, including the Stained Glass Stitch used on the purple gown, the stitch (I changed the thread and trim) for the red jacket, and the adorable veil.  She  very generously gave me permission to use those elements in a new guide that I designed in order to teach the piece to an ANG Guild group in Charleston, SC.  It remains one of my favorite projects – it was great fun to design, stitch, and then teach it.  Below are a picture of my finished pillow (finishing by Marlene – my only instructions to her were that it should be ‘fat, gaudy, and fabulous’ , and she delivered – and the Stitch Diagram with instructions.  Keep it in mind, and keep on stitching!  NPQ
