  1. It's beautiful Steph. Question..Your stitches are laid so perfect, do you always put your canvas on a stand or sometimes in your lap?

    1. I use a stand and always use a laying tool.

    3. Madly working on the Arabian Magi from Kelly Clark. I would like to finish him in the next few days, but I have to paint my room and BR over the weekend. Bummer, but new carpet is coming on Monday for my bedroom and I might as well paint the BR while the paint is out. Maybe by the end of the week????

  5. Great Finish! He's a handsomely dressed magi for sure! I think your needles must be smoking because you are stitching so quickly - keep it up!

  7. Hi Stephanie,

    He's gorgeous!

    Just one questions?
    Are you going to leave the background plain for finishing or are you going to stitch around the Magi so that he is a more dome like shape for finishing?
