Argghh! I've been knocking myself out trying to stitch below Gunther's hands so I could move the canvas again on the stretcher bars. I thought between some golf and the Super Bowl and Downton Abbey, I might accomplish my goal. It was not to be, even before I took the photograph and discovered that I started stitching the second ribbon on his sash in the wrong green. That's what comes of pulling fibers out of a bag without taking them all out so you can see the color sequence.
I did the mosaic stitch for the lighter blue on the edging of his sleeves. And I managed to complete almost all of the red bottom of his tunic.
Today I belatedly decided on my 2013 class schedule. I'll be teaching classes on items that I have blogged about including Hearts; cuff bracelet; small flamingo canvas; poinciana tree, and the geometric sampler I designed utilizing watercolors.
