My eldest daughter (and I) have a thing for Vera. If you are old enough, you’ll remember her bright colors and simple vibrant drawings on everything.
I bought two vintage canvases, one of a strawberry and one of a daisy on eBay a week ago. They are big and they are quickpoint. That means BIG mesh. I’m waiting to see if it’s 10 or 7 mesh, but I suspect 7. They will be so cool on her white couch when they are done.
But the mesh size means nothing in my stash will work on it. So my plan is to use knitting yarns. I have some knitting yarns in my stash but I think the only thing that will work is some thick cotton rope from Rowan that’s black. I don’t have much of it, but black is an accent on them anyhow. This will also give me an idea of the thickness I’ll need.
Then I’m going to ask my knitting friends for yarn, then I’ll go visit the local knitting shop and buy knitting yarn for them. That’s going to give me the thickness I need, the bright colors the pillows have, and will make them very long-wearing.
I’m so excited. This will be an amazing stress release project.
