Elegant Thanksgiving Update

Rebecca in progress
Hi everyone,

A short post for those of us in the Elegant Thanksgiving class.  This is my garland so far - which isn't much  to look at, but I have practiced a lot of the techniques on a blank canvas.  I have done the sunflower stem on the right twice.  I found that wrapping the memory thread stem WITHOUT going through canvas worked best.  The eggplant was pretty easy and I have mastered the 3D leaves, but since they go on last you won't see them yet.  

The grapes are the same as the ties on my polar bear and the next thing to practice is the lettuce!

Hopefully with all this practice the next canvases will be much easier!

Have fun - this will be worth it,
