Ok, so how come none of you ever told me how much fun this canvaswork is?!?! You were trying to keep it for yourself, I know it!
Seriously, dudes, this one is crazy fun. Big huge needle, fat squishy yarn – BIG FAT STITCHEZ, YO. You can actually squeeze them. Squeezy embroidery!
As I said before, I’m just winging it for this sampler, and it’s a lot of fun working this way. The threads you see in the photo at the top are the only ones I will use (I think), and I’m just choosing stitches and placement as I go. It’s all very relaxing, since I usually do much more formal embroidery projects. With only crewelwork as an exception, this is absolutely my favorite sampler so far.
I’m heading off to Amsterdam for a week to see my Bestest Gal Pal and whatnot, so I’ll see you all in a week or so when I get back. In the meantime, if you haven’t started one of these canvaswork samplers, I seriously suggest you give it a try! (Read my first post about this sampler here.) I love mine so much, I’m even taking it on vacation with me – if you’re in Amsterdam and see someone making gigantic stitches in the park, stop by and say hey!
