About Me

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

Pictures of former Mystery pieces and more

I've received a few photos lately and like to share them with you. First up is Burst of Stars from Jody D. I like the use of triple matting!
Next up is Pandora's Boxes from Chris D. He (yes, he!) has stitched several of my designs.
This next photo comes from Anne Marek who is the proprietor of Mrs. Stitches  http://www.mrsstitches.com/ in New Jersey. I met in person at a tradeshow last year and she was delightful! She helped one of her customers change all the colors for Rainforest Revisited and sent this photo of the finished piece. It's very colorful compared to the original and it was fun to see something completely different! It sort of makes my design juices start flowing...
My mom finished her Autumn Logs and made this pillow within minutes of putting in the last stitch! It looks great on my dad's brown leather recliner but I doubt that's its home!
Here's a sneak peek of what I'm working on right now - the working title is "Stained Glass Stars" and it will be a teaching piece for 2014. 
And for the cat lovers, an obligatory cute photo of Boots - he loves plastic bags is begging me not take it away from him!
Next week I'm headed to Tennessee, North Carolina, and Kentucky! I'm looking forward to taking a class from Gary Clark with the Knoxville EGA. From there I'll go to mom's for the weekend and the John Campbell Folk Art School's Fall Festival. Last stop on the trip is the EGA National Seminar where I'll have a table at Merchandise night, see the exhibits, and shopping the Boutique (probably the best part!). Hope to see some of you there...

Autumn Logs pillow

Just a quick post to show my finished Autumn Logs made into a pillow. The center looks washed out in the photo but I can't take another because I sent the pillow up to Fireside Stitchery - they're having a Needle Delights Originals trunk show right now and have over a dozen of my pieces - check them out if you're in the northeast! http://www.firesidestitchery.com/
Today is the first day of my online class "Inchies" - here's the Confetti colorway - one of my students already finished it and sent a photo!
I'm working on something new and will show you a peek soon!
