This week I received some tardy canvases. One, I think was ordered last September. However, it is so gorgeous, who can complain?
Melissa Shirley and Trubey are the two artists who I believe do the most gorgeous shells. These are by Melissa.
This is an 8x8" swallow-tailed hummingbird canvas. It is the central design from a larger canvas that Melissa does with about a 3 inch border. It's for those stitchers who don't want to commit to an 18x18 canvas (or 20x20). Melissa has a series of about 20 designs with the original being the large version, followed by the 8x8 on 13mesh and then the 3rd size of 5x5" on 18mesh.
I saw this "bird" canvas by Charley Harper last week on Facebook. I decided that I just had to have it--called, and about 5 days later it appeared at Needle Nicely. Now if I were stitching (which I am not at the moment), I would drop everything to start stitching this. I just love it!
This is one of Stitch-Its newer sweater designs. I love the construction of those tennis/running shoes.
I bought this pretty doll canvas, designer unknown, from Pat Miller's Stashing/Destashing Blog last week. I think she is gorgeous and I would love to stitch her, but I have no little girls in my life.
