Teal and Purple

Late last month I was lucky enough to have the chance to take a class with Lorene Salt, a very talented canvaswork designer. The class was offered through the Toronto guild of the Embroiderer’s Association of Canada. I’m not a member of that guild (just the online one), but the ladies were nice enough to let me take part.

Corners and Curves, designed by Lorene Salt

The piece is called Corners and Curves and is just stunning in person. The picture, as always, doesn’t do any justice. The fibres range from silk/wool blends, to perle cotton, to Kreinik metallics, and all the colours go together so well.

In January I will be taking another class from Lorene, this time online through the guild I belong too. It is called Santa Fe, and as charted it is stitched in corals and teals. Coral, though, is one of my least favourite colours, so I will be substituting out all the fibres. If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen some of the fibres I’ve chosen as replacements. I can’t wait to get started!

    Very pretty. I love doing canvaswork, but never seem to sit myself down to work on it. Something to change in 2017.
