I wrote a ton of stitch guides for the retreat.  Everyone worked on a piece of their choice.  It was so fun for everyone to see what everyone else was working on and learn from each other.




So many great pieces and fabulous stitchers!  I hope you join in the fun next time!

All of the stitch guides will be available soon.

To Market . . . To Market!


I’m off to Frisco on Thursday for the Autumn Needlepoint Reunion.  I’m so excited for you all to see my new designs.  There’s over 50 of them!  Here are a few sneak peeks at the ones that I’m dying to get a needle into.

These little tote bags are 3 x 4 on 18 mesh and stitch up so quick.  Here’s what they look like finished.

Aren’t they just the cutest?

I have a thing for nativities.  Not sure why.  But I do.

I had so much fin stitching the other graphic landscapes from Amanda Lawford.  This pair would be beautiful together!
