Gail Hendrix has met the challenge some of us threw at her, and is now blog stitching one of her new designs - a beautifully drawn and painted canvas with three irises swirling and dancing inside a circle.
She has also included a mini-tutorial for basketweave, and has explained why she uses (and prefers) simple fibers. Do go visit her at Squiggee Designs. A short while ago, she insisted she couldn't stitch, and that painting was her only thing. She is a fast study, I think, or didn't want to admit how much she knows.
