Ladybug Flying!

For those of you who comment on the photo that appears on my blog - Ladybug Tea - this is to let you know that she is landing.

Ladybug will be taught at the Blue Bonnet Studio held in Lost Pines, TX, on February 15-18, 2014.

Go have a look and register away!  I would love to have you in class!

This design works up quickly and is ready to enjoy.  It is stitched on 14ct Zweigart Monocanvas - 14"x 16". Lots of interesting stitches:  Victorian step - in two directions, packed stem, mosaics, staggered chain, giant rhodes - two directions, byzantine variation, needleweaving picots, checkered scotch, overlapped oblong crosses, couching, satin stitches, to name a few of them.

The threads are great also!
