For my road trip to LA I took this Princess and Me canvas. It belongs to a dear friend that bought it about 15 years ago when our kids were very young. She gave up needlepoint and sent this to me to finish for her. I finished the background while waiting and waiting for our flight.

There has been progress. I finished the dress. I outlined the collar using Kreinik size 8 in 002 and cross stitching the edge. I stitched a double cross for the cross at the bottom tip of the collar edge. It was my stitch idea to use the diagonal cashmere on the horizontal for the water. Edged the pontoon boat and stitched the roof of the low wide white building using a stitch from Carolyn's Merry Easter Eggs book. I outlined the sleeves. I backstitched where necessary to keep straight lines around the sleeves and edges of the dress.

I took this cute angel from Painted Pony that I bought at The Needle Works in Austin.
Another reason we go to Chaparral is to visit Carolyn's ribbon store. 100's of gorgeous spools of ribbon. She picked out this perfect one for the unusual colors in this Kelly Clark Christmas pear that I got from The French Knot in Fort Worth. D got a bunch of ribbons for two of her projects.
I call Carolyn the Queen of Doodads. She and Chaparral have the most extensive selection of charms, buttons, flowers, and on and on. I bought these on our last visit.
