Now that Harvest is approaching it's second lesson we are looking forward to our next adventures as well.

I have thrown in a little bonus canvas that I had not planned to do but it was so cute that I could not pass it up.
Easter Wreath

This sweet little A. Bradley canvas has a design area of 9" x 9" and an approximate canvas size of 13" x 13".  There are so many things going on in this little bundle.  Every area is quite manageable.  AND many of you will have what you need right in your stash.  Talk about a stash buster!  

Techniques will include couching, creating plaids, ruching, beading, plaited stitches, buttonhole, maybe Jessicas and bullions, and of course needle felting - how else could I do that sweet little bunny face.  Suggested threads include Impressions, Petite Sparkle Rays, Vineyard Silk, Gloriana Silks, ThreadworX, Pepper Pot Silk, size 14 seed beads, and other embellishments.

The needle felted bunny will be done at the last lesson using wool roving for the fur.

Registration is now open for this cutie and will close on June 15.  The first lesson will be posted in mid-July.  There are 6 lessons for a total package of $150 with a lesson released each month.  

NOTE:  The materials list will be released at the time the payment is processed!
