Lucky Lady

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!

    Hi Suzie! What a great Mother’s Day! As you know, I love this canvas, too, and can’t wait to see what you do with it. I may “need” the canvas and stitch guide when you’re done. Beautiful!

    Great minds think alike – I’m using that sky stitch on the “U Go Girl” canvas! Was thinking of carrying all the way thru but may need to change for the road/water/whatever it is that she’s driving on!
    see you soon!
