I sure am one lucky lady. I get to play (and work) in a needlepoint shop every day. I have a great husband and the most awesome little boy in the world!
They did good this year!
On Saturday I treated myself to a little something from the shop that I’ve had my eye on for a while.
Ok . . . Maybe not so little.
Only two tries to get the sky! I’m getting better at this. Down from my usual five tries!
I made up this sand stitch. I wanted it to look like the swirly zig-zag pattern at the water’s edge. Speaking of the Water’s Edge, I am anxiously awaiting the new design for the retreat in October
. It will probably show up today. Now I’ll have to stop by the shop to see if it’s there. I really can’t avoid going in on my day off, can I?
Becki suggested this water stitch that she learned from David McCaskill. I was skeptical at first but it looks amazing!
I hope everyone had a great mother’s day. Don’t forget to sign up for Cynthia Thomas’ classes in June!
