Coffee Cups Filling Up

Here’s an update to a program that we introduced to my ANG Main Line Stitchers group for a coffee cup canvas that we will all stitch and give to Starbucks as a thank you for letting us use their conference room for free. Come join us any second Monday of the month at 7 pm at 218 Lancaster Ave.

I’ve just stitched 3 more cups including the bottom right green cup. I wanted a full coverage because the canvas wasn’t painted correctly. So, I used alternating mosaic. I like adding a sparkle with Kreinik to that green. It’s odd that the handle is one of only 2 cups with a red handle. I stitched the other cup with the red handle in the upper right corner. For this cup and saucer and the white cup with red saucer near the bottom center, I tried 3 different wavy stitches that I found in Desert Island Stitches, Vol 1. These can be done vertically or horizontally. The wavy stitch in the grey cup was a little tricky but I like the look. Only 8 cups left to go and nearby backgrounds. This is a fun canvas to stitch!
