A Time for Thanks

It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? Where does the time go? Well I’ve been working lots again, especially this month and I give thanks that the shop is busy as we try to get orders out as quickly as we can. Want to keep stitching in your hands!

The supply chain is still an issue, with some things better than others. But when I look at the walls and see what we really have to work with, we have lots to give thanks for.

While you’ve been busy stitching your 21 in 21, my finishes pale in comparison. Have you discovered these Hedgehog Travel Tags yet? They’re very addictive once you’ve started, trust me you just can’t stitch 1! I’ve finished 4, with the other one not pictured is the other version of San Diego. Finishing by Island House Needlepoint. I’ve got at least 4 or 5 waiting for me in my queue until I finish my purse. Purse you say?

This was me the other night when I was trying to finish the middle design with the yellow that I had and was sweating it because of dyelot issues. I did have enough, thank goodness! The canvas is by the Meredith Collection and is called an Adelaide bag and is 2 sided… so does that count as 2 finishes?

This is a Q Code by Victoria Whitson. You read it with your phone and it translates to test negative, think positive and is being finished into a frame weight by Island House Needlepoint. See there’s something else to give thanks for…testing negative.

So I’m counting my finishes, 1 cat ornament, perfume bottles, 4 travel tags, frame weight and 2 sides of my purse and I’m sure I’ll finish another travel tag or two before year end. So maybe 10 or 11? Not bad and I do give thanks that I am able to stitch just about every night.

and these two cats of mine make my life just about purrfect, with their antics, kisses, purring motor, demands for attention and so much more. See I really do have lots to be thankful for.

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. I just had a negative test! Have a cold, then a friend had a positive, so got tested. Not too much stitching for me, the head is not cooperating at all. Maybe later. Love your kitties!

  2. We don’t do Thanksgiving here in South Africa, but I do thank you for coming back for the occasion. Glad you are happily stitching, certain purrsons purrmitting, and helping lots of customers to do likewise. Your blogs are always cheerful; they brighten my day!
