About Me

I design needlepoint AKA canvaswork or counted needlepoint - it's all done from charts and diagrams!

It's beginning...

to feel a lot like Christmas! I put up my tree this past weekend and actually couldn't fit all my ornaments on it! I finished cleaning out my storage unit and found a box of ornaments I had in the shop that I kept for myself. They really filled up the tree and I had to leave off some things. I may have to get a bigger tree next year! Here's the tree...
and just a few of my favorite ornaments.
This cross stitch Santa has legs made of buttons and the pattern was in one of the Just Cross Stitch ornament magazines. I still think he's just darling!
This "Tassel Santa" is needlepointed from a Cheryl Schaffer pattern - even the back is stitched!
This round ornament is the first thing I ever designed and was the beginning of my first set of "Ornaments of the Month". I've thought about releasing them - they do look great on the tree and are simple and quick to stitch! The little Baby's 1st sock was needlepointed when my niece was born four years ago and I'm keeping it for her! It looks darling tucked into the tree. I like "perching" ornaments into the branches here and there instead of "hanging" them all.
Another of my first ornaments.
And here's what some of you have been waiting to see...a bigger look at my Spring Logs. I still have a lot of border to do. My friends who've seen it say it's "sweet". I'm ready to move on to Winter - think I'll stitch it in the right season!
Hope you're having a Happy Holiday Season.

A friend who was in New Hampshire for a wedding wandered into ABC Stitch Therapy and saw this awesome framed Amazing Color. They painted the frame to match the stitching! It's, well, Amazing!
