Better Late Than Never

Hi everyone,

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.

Happy Stitching,
