I’ve felt the need to practice needlepainting ahead of my class with Alison Cole at the Inspring Threads Seminar in Toronto. Im doing the Siennese Illuminated Treasure. It’s a small piece so I want to work on my finer motor skills. I always feel clumsy when I switch between counted and surface work. So I’m going to get rid of that clumsy feeling before class.
I picked Trish Burr’s Sweat Pea to work on. It fits comfortably into a 5″ hoop. I really like needlepainting flowers. I’m allergic to the real things so this is a good way around that.
