A Little Stitching!

Believe it or not, I’ve been stitching! I remember telling my sistah Meredith Willett years ago if I couldn’t get in at least 2-3 hours, I didn’t even bother trying to stitch. She told me “don’t be crazy! Even an hour a day, you can accomplish a lot!” Well I’ve been trying to practice what she preaches and slowly making headway on my Veuve Clicquot by Thorn Alexander.

I’m also practicing taking pictures with my iPad, then cropping and adjusting them for the blog. Yes I have my laptop back, but somewhere along the way in the Mac world I must’ve fallen asleep and missed so much to the point that I need to go back to weekly Mac classes as I’m lost! So here I am on my IPad and seeing that I have a way to go with my pictures. But practice will make purr~fect sooner or later.

I was on the hunt for just the right magnet, remembering that we had these new chatter buddies from the Meredith Collection and this works…what do you think?

I’ve got the 2 smaller inner borders done along with the some of the wording. Moving onto the background and will bead the larger letters which will consume most of my day along with a baseball game or two. Thought too that I might work in my storage unit for a few hours straightening up and pulling out the next window display for the shop…or maybe not?! We’ll see how the mood strikes me!

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. Is that an anthurium plant amongst your orchids? If it is, do you just keep it indoors and how long have you had it?
    I try to stitch for a few minutes in the morning before I start my day. Sometimes it works and sometimes the minutes turn into hours! Glad you’re back stitching.
    Enjoy the games

  2. Love to see you stitching– I haven’t picked up a needle in 3 months because of lack of a chunk of time. You’ve inspired me!
