WIP – PLEASANTRYPosted: July 23, 2014
With the return of my full-time schooling, I can already feel the crafty-glow escaping from my soul. It’s really quite unfortunate that there isn’t an employment opportunity as a Netflix-watcher, I’d be so good at it!
This needlework canvas I purchased over my summer break at a shop in Parkdale. It was a part of a kit, with a lot of different sections started, but none of them really finished.
Never before have I done needlework on a painted canvas. Normally, I develop simple geometrical patterns myself or I design a chart, and then use the counted method. My idea when buying this kit was that it would be a simple project that I could complete without a whole lot of thinking. Included in the kit were about forty of these bad boys – vintage Beehive tapestry wool. Despite how much I want this to be an easy canvas to work, there are so many different shades of green, blue and red that it IS getting a bit tricky. Especially after class, when I’m trying to pay attention to Mulder and Scully!
