I forgot all about this. A long while back I went to see a
Van Gogh exhibit which inspired me. I dug out this little piece of loose canvas I painted with acrylics and began hand stitching. I like it. I think I'll work on it some more in between Christmas errands!

I love the colors and the swirls! Is it difficult to stitch on painted canvs?

That's coming out beautiful! I was wondering, too, if it is tough to stitch through the paint?

Hi Cathie, this looks so good, and the stitches you choose apply so well to Van Goghs vigorous brush strokes, there's so much movement and force in there...
Have a great pre-Xmas week:) I know you must be terribly busy

I love that painting, which brought tears to my eyes as I gazed at it in New York at the MOMA. Yours will be lovely!

Saw the Van Gogh museum while in amsterdam...this is still my fav. You've captured his movement and brush strokes with your stitching. Hope things don't get tooooooo frantic for you.

Hi Cathie...I know, don't fall over! I am making moves to get caught up. I have enjoyed reading your posts and seeing what all I have missed.

Love Starry Night...would love to see it when you have finished...it's beautiful! Love Sabrina's skull bag...it turned out great and your trip and photos of Blue Ridge Mountains and Appalachians are gorgeous and that baby bear is so cute! Your turkey and batik bag are beautiful, photos of Tobie and Gizmo are so cute, cracked me up about knitting with 5 needles ;-)...it really is easier than it looks and fun snaps of Sal and Sabrina decorating for the holiday! Love those skull pj bottoms! ;-)

Happy New Year and thank you for your sweet note. Will shoot you an email when I finish reading and getting caught up! XOX ~Lisa
