And here is The Common Thread's website. I'd heard mention of this but had no idea they had a website. More needlepoint, but arranged as an online exhibit using Pantone's Living Coral color as a theme. https://ourcommonthreadco.com/living-coral
More specifically, ecclesiastical needlepoint created in the 1930s in the Winchester Cathedral in England. The book comes out in early September 2019 but I'm telling you now so you can get on your library waiting list for it.
I noticed when putting my belt canvas on roller bars that I couldn't get the needlepoint canvas as tight as I'd like. Apparently this is a common problem. K's Creations has come up with an unique tool called tension collars that help tighten the canvas more than you can get manually.
I haven't used these so I can't say if they help with a belt canvas. Hopefully someone who has can tell us how well they work in general, and specifically for a belt canvas.
Speaking of which, I'm working away on the belt. It's relaxing and fun. Here's what I have accomplished to date.
A Chinese Lantern Motif from The Belt
I will post updates as I work this in the right hand column. Belts are essentially basketweave, so there isn't much to talk about, but I thought you might like to see progress, especially as I am making this up as I go along.
Couch a spiral of thread working from the center out Use any stitch you want and then cover the jagged edge with an outline of stem stitch Cut out a fabric circle (Ultrasuede or felt work well) and stitch it to the canvas with tiny stitches in a matching color. Cover the circles with round sequins or paillettes or spangles
Because Tina operates out of Birmingham, England, you may not be familiar with her designs. She does tapestry kits using Appleton and Anchor wool on printed canvas or charts (your choice), among other things. She's very fond of Bargello, too. She also sells charts for her Use Your Stash series to encourage folks to use up bits of leftover threads from other projects. http://www.tina-francis-tapestry.co.uk/shop/
