I have been listening to Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire mystery series and watching movies while working on Copper River Canyon. This design by Mary K. Campbell was offered as a cyberclass through Cyberpointers. I loved the idea of combining beading, blackwork and surface mapping techniques in order to produce a piece of needlework. I also loved the copper colors in the piece.
Today, I finished beading my river. I think it is a bit wider in parts than it should be but that will be fine. Randomly applying the beads to the canvass was a meditative act that went fairly quickly when I sat down to work on it.
