Who? Who? Who's Ready to Stitch??

Guess what is winging it's way to mailboxes right now??  The Owls!  Yes, a little bird at Fancy Stitches told me they are shipping the Owls from the Stitch a Falling Star club out right now!  I know our speedy stitchers who have already finished the first two have their stretcher bars ready and waiting! "Who" will be first to post a finish this time?

It's Still All About the Bargello!

Yep, this club has temporarily taken over my life lately, assembling dozens and dozens of embellishing packs filled with beads, crystals and sequins is quite a task!  Sharing today the official print ad for Bejeweled Bargello from the latest issue of Needlepoint Now, and getting back on the assembly line!

Bejeweled Bargello Club Craziness!

Well, not crazy-crazy, just a little crazy, collating the extra copies I've had printed of Ornament #1 in my new Bejeweled Bargello club that starts in May!  Orders have exceeded what I initially estimated so now I'm putting together the extra charts and bead kits.  Still on track for a May launch, that's the important thing!

And yes, that is the actual stitched ornament tucked over to the right, I've still yet to get them off to the finishers! I decided to hang on to them until after all of the chart work was done.

It's not too late if you would like to sign up, just send me an email at for all the details!

Bejeweled Bargello Ornament Club Starts in May!

I have a new club starting next month, you may have seen the ad pictured below in the latest issue of Needlepoint Now.  This club is a little different, it is charted needlepoint rather than painted canvas.  Once a month you will receive a full color chart, instructions and a packet of beads and embellishments, including many Swarovski crystals.  You will provide the canvas and threads, and the thread list will include alternate color choices for those who like a more traditional red and green color scheme.  I will also include embellishments to match the red/green versions when needed.  There are 12 ornaments in the series, plus a bonus 13th ornament that is free! 

Please email me at or call me at 682-233-5377 if you would like more details or to sign up!  The first chart pack ships the first week in May!
