We went to the annual rummage sale in nearby Lissie, and I paid 25 cents for a 1972 Bucilla embroidery kit, linen canvas stamped with sunflowers. The yarns were missing, but the directions were intact. So, I painted the design, applied fusible web, and started putting things together. It will be something about wetlands.
I had been thinking about trying threadpainting, as I have seen so many beautiful pieces from others using this technique. I am doing it on the sunflowers--seems to be successful--but it's getting tedious. Doubt that I will use it extensively in future. The actual painting was fun, though.
