A Proper Finish!

Isn’t everything English “proper?” This was from my trip 2 years ago when I went to London with the Needlepoint Now tour! One of the highlights was a class at the Royal School of Needlework in Hampton Court, which was on my bucket list!  I would like to go back again for another class, specifically in silk shading.

This was a goldwork class that was selected for the theme of the exhibits “Peacocks and Pomegranates.” It was a great class and my seat was at the end of the table so I could look out the window at the gorgeous view! and daydream a bit too while I was stitching.

Thanks to Nancy at New Creations Picture Framing that turned this into a showstopper!

I’m absolutely in love with it and I would say it is very proper in an English sort of way!

It found its place of honor on my cat wall…I know it’s out of place, but it was the color! Mixed in with some stitching, a special cartoon that my sister had done for me when we were a 3-cat household and many snips of Mutts cartoons. A few special cards and other purr~fect cat cartoons that Nancy at the shop has a keen eye for finding for me. I give them to New Creations and the other Nancy just comes up with some fab ideas!

AlleyCat and I were chilling the other night while I was watching a little baseball!

About Vicky

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. Such a beautifully rich-looking needlework piece! Love your cat wall. One of my friends had come into my house, looked around at all my cat things, and remarked, “Boy, you sure like cats”. We all can say the same about you!

  2. Love the cat wall, and the Pomegranate!! I had the opportunity to take a class at the RSN last year. Isn’t it a wonderful experience?!

  3. So glad to see your project, it is beautiful. It does make me excited for my tour this fall with Needlepoint Now. Liz
