DO YOU KNOW WHAT THESE ARE?
These are CANVAS WEIGHTS. When two hands are not enough to hold the mounted canvas, hold the laying tool and control those pesky strands in your needle AND you have no frame stand nor lap stand, you park your canvas on a table so the area where you wish to stitch is protruding. You put the CANVAS WEIGHT on the part of the canvas that is on the table, and your work will be held for you while you lay those perfect stitches. How can this be? These canvases finish to three dimensions and get stuffed with shot or pennies to make them heavy.
We have geometrics, pets and quasi-people - whatever suits your mood. All canvases were chosen to have areas for fun stitches.
