A Finish or Three!

Some really nice finishes this week!  This is a great Land's End tote that Diane G. attached one of my oldest designs, "Cool Dots" to:

My friend Kathy H. recently received all 5 designs from my "Stitch a Falling Star" club series back from the finishers:

Lietzie B. got her Happy Haunting Grounds from last year's Sandy Arthur Mystery Class back from her framer:

Great work everyone, keep those photos coming!

A One and a Two!

TWO trunk shows that is!  I have two out this month, one in Philadelphia at Rittenhouse Needlepoint and the other in Atlanta at In Stitches.  Hope you can come by either one and check them out, lots of stitched models in both locations!

A Finish and an Almost!

My friend Martha J. finished her "So Happy" recently, with lots of great personal touches as usual!  Love how it came out:

And this almost finished is Jan K.'s, who is stitching it in Carolyn Hedge Baird's class at the Chaparral here in Houston:

Can't wait to see both of these again when they are finished-finished!

It's a Party!

It's a Peacock Party that is! There are now two great stitch guides for this canvas, the latest one was created by Sharon Quick:

I think this is so fabulous!  Lots of bling and fun stitches and did I say bling??  I have seen the actual stitch guide too and it is extremely high quality-- color pictures and numbered stitch graphs along with easy to read clear instructions.  If you would like to order a stitch guide for yourself, contact Sharon on her Facebook page.
Robin King also has a guide for this design, and sadly I don't have a photo because I am the model stitcher for it and I haven't finished it, bad on me!  Not for lack of fun, just lack of time!  Robin's guide is also excellent and loaded with fun techniques, to order email her at
