Tony Minieri Class - Day One - PM

                                          Detail of AJ-26 - Leapin' Lizards (Anne Jerlow)

After lunch it was time to get back to business.  This is a detail of one of the more exotic stitches Tony planned for the canvas I chose to stitch.  The lizard's gullet is Venetian Cloth Stitch using Balger #12 braid.  It is a detached stitch, and when the stitched area was completed I stuffed it with 1/2" pieces of the braid before tacking down the bottom.  Leave it to Tony to come up with something like this!

More fun and more photos tomorrow.
