Doctor Who Dalek

Our granddaughter likes Doctor Who, a British TV show.  She drew the Dalek a couple of years ago and I said I would stitch it for her.  I have to say this was not my favorite nor my best project, but the good news is it is done and framed.  Some of the parts were a challenge.  I stitched in on canvas using Splendor Silk, Krienik metallic and DMC glow in the dark for the floor.  The round parts are wooden disks covered with Splendor . . . .

Note to self:  Be careful what I say I will stitch!

Royal School of Needlework and American Needlepoint Guild

In my last posting I shared the information about the story that my friend wrote for the Needle Pointer magazine published by the American Needlepoint Guild (ANG).  You can now read the entire article via the Royal School of Needlework website.  

Just click here for the RSN website:  Royal School of Needlework  There is the link to the article in the second paragraph.  "Find out what it's like studying the RSN Certificate in Technical Hand embroidery - read Linda Kilgore's article here"

You can locate information about the classes offered at the RSN on their website and contact information.  The classes will be taught again in the spring and the fall of 2012 in San Francisco, California. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
