Another Chapter of A Needlepoint Love Story Comes to a Close!

This weekend marked the 6th chapter of A Needlepoint Love Story, an annual exhibit of needlework on display at Fort Worth's historic Thistle Hill mansion.  I have been fortunate enough to be involved for a few years now, painting each year's commemorative ornament and this year designing and teaching a class piece as well.  Here is a look at some of the fun:

This year's ornament was painted after the mansion's Breakfast Room, which doubles as the gift shop during the exhibit:


This is the finished class piece, a three-piece design called "Love Home Joy".  

One of my friends had her pedicure painted to match the class colors!  

Hope you can join us next year for Chapter 7!

For the Birds!

I seem to have a theme going on this month, and it's not hearts, it's birds!  Next week I am teaching Love, Home, Joy at Thistle Hill:

And in a few days the second bird in my Mid-Century Mod themed club at The Needlepointer will be shipping out:
