Bag Ladies

Here is my next project.  I bought this Sunset Dimensions kit years & years ago.  I always intended to do it in needlepoint, not cross stitch.  At one point, I pulled a bunch of thread from stash and bought what else I thought I would use.  A few months ago, I cut a piece of gray canvas and found stretcher bars.  Now I'm about ready to begin! 

It will not look like the picture!  First, I will outline all the bags with a single strand of floss as guidelines.  The bags will all be done with Watercolours in decorative stitches.  I plan to stitch the bags first.  

For the kitties, I have a huge bag of thread!  Mostly Petite Very Velvet, Alpaca 18 and some Mohair.  I also have plenty of Impressions and Silk & Ivory in the cat colors.

This is going to be fun and challenging to stitch.  I hope to have something to show you in the next couple of weeks.
