Painted Aida Cloth

Well, after hours of embroidery and some beading, the painted aida cloth piece is almost done.  I haven't decided how I will finish it yet.  The question is whether to put it into a frame or finish it in another way.   I'll have to try a couple of ideas and see what looks best.

This could become a new obsession.  It's the perfect little project to take along in the car while my husband or son chauffeur me around or to work on while watching (or at least listening to) TV.  I've already got a good stash of painted aida cloth from last weekend's playtime in the studio, so I'll be ready to start another one as soon as I get the design planned!

  2. Linda,

    What a great idea to paint aida cloth. I ran across some in my woman cave/studio while reorganizing and didn't know what to do with it. Duh! Never thought to paint it. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Thanks Lynda. I got the idea from my friend Donna Funnell. I think she read about it somewhere. I love how great ideas are shared so we can all learn new things. 😉
