Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend a 2 day Pilot class, Yei-bi-chei, sponsored by the San Bernadino Chapter of ANG. Victoria Nessel is a newly certified NAN teacher. She is teaching this piece at the Santa Fe EGA Seminar in October. Thus, I cannot post a photo. A Yei is a Navjo figure that carries messages from God. The Yei-bi-chei is the Navjo dancer that protrays the Yei in Navjo ceremonies. The canvas is the mask of the Yei-bi-chei. It's a very amambitioes project! Techniques include: sponge painting, appliqueing into a background canvas, twisted cord, cutting out canvas, padding, & embellishment. That's after needlepointing. The colors and stitch combinations are very unique.  I should get some stitching in while I watch the Olympics.

I have finished Nancy Cucci's Patriotic Heart. It gets one more star. One in the package was broken. Michael's doesn't carry them.
I have added several specialty threads to the web site: Sparkles by Sundance & the Access Commodities Collections for Flesh Tone Palettes. Instructions are included on how to stitch a realistic face. I found them thorough & intimidating. Tisha
