Sweet Pea

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.
