Better Late Than Never
Here's my first finish of the Kelly Clark Angels of the month. Can you guess which month?? These are so incredibly cute!!!
I learned two new techniques with this one canvas...
The first is Closed Raised Herringbone which is used on the pumpkin leaves.
The second is the Casalguidi stitch - can you say that 3 times fast? Casalguidi is an Italian embroidery stitch and is used here on the broom handle. She needs to swat that spider!
I have also started using the tutorials on Mary Corbet's site Needle n Thread which are super helpful especially when you are trying a stitch for the first time.
