3D French Castle from Squiggee


My fellow SWAN, DF, and I bought this same canvas months if not years ago.  She has stitched it so beautifully.  I can't wait to do mine!

Kelly Clark Welcome Friends Sampler


I tried this new stitch on the left hand hill.  I think it's a cute stitch but I don't think it works quite right here.  I frogged it.




I restitched it using the same Mountain Stitch #35 from the Landscape Stitch book.  I stitched the light green hill in Nobuko.  I am not pleased with the way it looks.  I feel another frogging coming on.

Sunday WIP


I can't show you this Sunday's WIP since it is my Secret Swan ornament.  It's almost finished!  Here are just a few of my other WIP's.  I am so bad about buying a canvas and starting before finishing the others!

Kelly Clark Welcome Friends Sampler Post #3

I stitched the left side green hill in Mountain Stitch #30 from the Landscape Stitch book.  It's a really cute stitch but looks more like shrubbery to me.

More Welcome Friends Sampler by Kelly Clark

I found the perfect stitch for this little hill.  Mountain stitch #35 from the Stitch Landscape book.  I used two strands of cotton floss.  So happy with it!

Kelly Clark Welcome Friends Sampler


I got this adorable canvas for Christmas.  I can't believe I held off for as long as I did to start stitching on it.  I started with reverse scotch at the bottom using three strands of cotton floss.  The blue is my new shade of blue.  It's DMC 924.
