Not Seen Before
This particular canvas is one of many that has been lerking in my stash for many years. I have decided this is the year that I will try to attack some of those canvases.
My local ANG group has set a competition this year that involves making 5 resolutions. One of mine (I stole this idea from a fellow member) is to go though my stash and either decide to attempt or sell in our destashing moments at meetings.
Yes I changed the colour, this is sangria in Trio. Before I started I copied the canvas so that when I've finished the stripes I can couch the spirals in something like DMC's memory thread. When I got this canvas down in Tucson I also purchased two buttons that may get on as well.
Another one of my resolutions is to encourage Fiona to work on her UFO which is a cat canvas. To that end this morning I brought her stand upstairs, pleased to say this had the desired effect and she put down the DS Lite game system in favor of stitching. Happy Mum.
