Stitch a Falling Star may have to go bi-monthly so that we can keep the fast stitchers in the group busy! I know of about a half dozen that finished their Fox canvas within days of receiving it, plus a handful of others I think are done but I haven't seen the canvas yet. Here are a few who have posted pictures in our FaceBook group, Alice, Emily and Lisa:
Next month is coming up fast and that will mean Owls!!
I'm up in the Dallas area this weekend, and I'm taking the opportunity to stop by Fancy Stitches for a special delivery-- this small mountain of canvas for the Stitch A Falling Star Club!
That's two stacks of 50 canvases each for the next two months of the club! I hate having to put that many canvases in the mail so I am only too happy to be able to drop them off in person!
Now if you are in the club, don't jump the gun, these aren't due for release real soon. Gayle and the ladies have to wear their little fingers out getting the edges taped first, plus put the last of the thread kits together. But soon my friends, soon! The canvases are ready and waiting, so meanwhile just keep on stitching that fox!
Woo hoo! Just received word that the Fox canvas from Stitch A Falling Star has started shipping and some of you have received yours already!
Can't wait to start seeing some of these stitched because the cardinals all came out so great, so many of you added your own unique touches! This is the latest finish from Alice G., check out her cute snowflake charms!
She also added a really cute variation to the sitting bird on the left, see how his little beak is stitched? Love that!!
If you are interested in this club, you have not missed out, we are only on the second canvas! Just call Gayle at the number below and she'll get you set right up!
I don't know who came up with the 7 Day Needlepoint Challenge, but it has really taken Facebook by storm lately. A friend challenges another friend to post photos of their completed needlepoint every day for 7 days, then that friend challenges another, and well it goes on and on, chain letter style. It has been great for me to see my designs appear, both older items, new ones and one or two that I barely recognized! Here are a few of my faves: This is Ann L's Purr More Hiss Less, with brilliant finishing by West Coast:
This is Pastel Puzzle, stitched by Beth S. and she changed so many of the colors I almost didn't recognize it! I love what she did, it is the most creative stitch of one of my designs I have ever seen!
This is Harvest Puzzle stitched by Diane G. and finished in a Stirling folio. I'm so sad Stirling is gone, they had colors that were perfect for my line!
CandyLand Christmas Trees stitched by Marla M. and finished with that wonderful West Coast finishing. (You know it is West Coast when you see those darling custom made feet!)
Garden Party Heart stitched by Mary J. That gold frame is exactly what I would have chosen and those pink and green mats! To die for!
Hope this challenge thing keeps on going for a while, it has been fun!
