ANG Stitch of the Month, Finished

Filed under: ANG 2016 Stitch of the Month, ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter

December’s portion of Susan Hoekstra’s Feuilles d’ananas  (Pineapple Leaves) was lots of couching which was all finished yesterday.

Instead of coming in and out the center hole of the daisies to place a small Mill Hill glass bead (10106), I pierced the canvas thread on the left and right of the center hole on each one. I matched the thread to the Daisy (Needlepoint Inc Silk, Scarlet, 501A), used beeswax to strengthen the thread, and went through the bead twice to secure each bead. The beads laid consistently done in this manner and it worked up quicker than I expected. Well worth the extra effort. A Happy New Year indeed!

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to share my stitching adventures in 2016. And, thanks to designers such as Susan who share their designs at no charge. ANG Stitch of the Month  (SOTM) is available to anyone with access to the Internet  (needlepoint.org under the Education tab) even if you are not a member of ANG.

I am looking forward to 2017!! Hope you have a Healthy, Happy New Year too.
