Backyard Stitching

Hi everyone,

I've been doing a lot of stitching in my backyard while I babysit (dogsit) Emily and try my best to dissuade her from digging to China.  Here is my latest cracker which is simple enough to work on by the pool (yes I live in Florida and it is 75 here).

Here's a side view

Well,  I don't bead outside but all the foundation work is so easy that it can be done out there and the light is perfect.

Now, the best outside project is a belt canvas.  I had this especially painted for my husband so it's a one of a kind Everglades belt - NO PYTHONS ON THE BELT!  Just our favorite turtle, ibis and a Florida Panther :)

Happy Stitching,



  1. Hi Linda,

    I just found your blog and I read all the posts. You have so many wonderful projects. I love the Santa Parade. I have seen many versions of this canvas and I like your's the best. Can you share who did the stitch guide for you?

  2. Thanks. I'm glad you like the blog. The Santa Parade canvas and guide came from Aristeia. It worked up to be a BIG pillow!
