Lani Does French Knots

Lani has just finished stitching one of her new chair designs released in January 2016.  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10207425614930826&set=gm.1035834623160362&type=3&theater

She may never do a French knot again but it sure looks great!  You can order the canvas from Lani's shop or your favorite shop can order it for you.  I think the guide will be available shortly from Lani.

My Castle, My Dragon (Kimberly) UPDATED

Kimberly's dragon and castle piece is finished and now Kimberly herself is writing up the stitch guide.  This apparently is giving her "square eyeballs."  I know the feeling!

UPDATE:  This will be a class at The Black Sheep in Orlando the end of June 2016.

The canvas is available from Bedecked and Beadazzled.  I think the guide will eventually be available from them as well, but probably not until after the class.

Polar Express (Debbie Mumm and Robin King)

This cutie is nearly finished.  Donna very kindly posted a photograph on Facebook.  The snowman canvas is from Debbie Mumm and is being stitched using a Robin King stitch guide.
