Summer at the Shore (Ewe and Eye and Suzie Vallerie)

Enriched Stitch's portrait of a house in Nantucket was a retreat class at the shop several years ago.  The canvas is no longer an exclusive to the shop but the stitch guide Suzie wrote is available from them.  You can see two versions of "Summer at the Shore" here and follow the link to purchase the downloadable PDF version of the stitch guide.

The shop can also probably furnish the threads needed and the canvas.  Just ask nicely.

Breaking News: Tony Minieri Adding Finished Photos to Website

After much work, Tony Minieri's adding photos of finished pieces to his website.   Here is the first one.  See the two thumbnails under the main photo?  That is a flag that there is a stitched model image.  Click on the thumbnails to change images.

I suspect most of his guides won't have model photos since Tony has to wait for a student to share a good photo with him and if the student made substantial changes to the stitch guide, Tony won't be able to show that as a good representation of the outcome, but it is a nice touch and much appreciated.
