Stitching this canvas was a big "stretch" for me technically, but well worth the effort. Lupe will go to the framer next week, and then I can focus on Leapin' Lizards, this year's class project.

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.
After a few hours of concentrated stitching and demos - time for lunch.
