Mindy Music


First, I want to thank all of you who commented on my previous post. Your kind words and encouragement is sooooo appreciated!

Now, back to the Music Room! I stitched this Mindy design a couple of years ago for my husband for Christmas. I am not usually a painted canvas person, but I couldn't resist this one with a musical theme. My husband plays guitar, saxophone and is learning piano and I play piano. I used only floss, pearl cotton & Krenik braid for threads, but used a huge variety of stitches which is not always easy on a Mindy canvas! Stitches used: Basketweave, Brick, Criss Cross Hungarian, Diagonal Mosaic, Mosaic, Nobuko, Oblong Cross variations, Rhodes, Rice, Scotch, Slanted Gobelin, Triangle variation, and a couple of others I don't remember what they are!

That is totally gorgeous!! I like the combo of simple threads with decorative stitches for enhancement- it's very geometric. I love her canvases.
