Tudor Tuesday, Pay it Forward, Linky Party

Working on two different needlepoint canvases as part of the FB Tudor Tuesday group.  Here's the latest on Catherine Parr I started several weeks ago - working on the background:
Here's the second canvas - also of Catherine Parr.  It's 13 ct by Labors of Love Needlepoint.  It's really outside my comfort zone, using only one strand of silk for her face (tent stitch) - it allows the painted canvas to show her features.  Her hair is done using a packed outline stitch.  I wasn't sure I'd like it, but I do.  Her lips are a metallic thread from Kreinik.
Don't forget ~
to sign up if you'd like to be part of Pay it Forward (see earlier post).  I'll be choosing names Sunday, October 19th.

Today is the Linky Party for everyone to show off their Halloween Ornament Exchanges.  I've partied with NINE participants so far - and what glorious goodies from Gorgeous Ghoulfriends!! Take a peek - the links are on my "2014 Halloween Exchange - Linky Party"page.

I've more exciting news to share, but that will have to wait until next time.

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~


  1. Stitching the 2nd Katharine Parr may be outside your comfort zone, but it is beautifully done.

  2. Lovely designs Kim. I really like the background on the first one.


  3. They look so lovely! I love all the specialty stitches :D

  4. Both of your pieces are lovely! Can't wait to see more :)
