Waste Canvas

Ooops, should have explained the Bluebell in the Tsunami block a little bit more for those not used to me. It was sewn using waste canvas, and there is a little bit about how to use it HERE

But basically Waste Canvas (sometimes wrongly called "Tearaway"), is tacked on top of the fabric. You then cross stitch through it and pull out the waste canvas, leaving the design behind, like this:

It is wonderful for crossing lines in crazy patch, and especially for going across lace. Even more so when you have good contrast (which wasn't brilliant in the Tsunami Bluebell)
