Thought it very appropriate timing to share with you this canvas that comes with a stitch guide written by Brenda Hart. I have a weakness for trees and seeing how lovely the boughs look stitched up all differently I think its so interesting. Guide calls for a nice variety of threads with numerous ones by Edmar. Edmar = rayon. Rayon = considering alternative shiny threads. Trebizond and Neon Rays come to mind. Canvas with guide are well priced at 79.00 for both. Design area on 18 is 14.5″ x 9″ wide on 18 count.
