I had a lovely time teaching the needle painting chipmunks in Prince Edward Island for the Embroiderers Association of Canada national seminar - you can read about it on my blog. The seminar, the students and the teachers have inspired me to design and stitch again and try not to spend all of my spare time on my dogs, haha.
I am currently working on a blackwork design of my new animal infatuation which is the Valais Blacknose Sheep, they are the cutest sheep on earth and remind me of my puppy Quincy...... human friendly and just like a stuffed toy. They live in the Valais region of the Swiss Alps but are also bred in Scotland and starting to be bred in the USA. Here is a video of them on YouTube, the hikers are scared of them at first and then realize they are harmless and adorable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkJqFDJDM0o
Here is the sketch of the embroidery that I will stitch in blackwork with some colour.
I have some sad news. On July 7th 2018 Buster our wonderful Newfy passed away suddenly. He was 9 years old and we miss him dearly. I cherish the memories I have of him.
