Does it Seem…

That time is standing still? Where a single day feels like it’s a week long? Or is it me?

I was looking through our 100’s of canvases the other day, trying to find one for an order. Yes we are in the shop as there has been so many orders, dozens and dozens. I feel that we need our stitching even more now. But we are working solo and we are locked into our home away from home trying to help everyone’s sanity by shipping their needs and wants. I have had a few 12 hour days, but I digress!

So I came across this canvas and have always wanted to stitch it, so I pulled it down and started looking at threads. I feel that I need a “comfort food type canvas” where I will do the cat in basketweave, bead the letters and then pick a background using Silk Lame Braid. I took my beads out today ay home and under very close supurr~vision picked out my beads. If you follow Needle Nook of La Jolla on Facebook, or even if you don’t, check out the picture! I didn’t download it for this blog post, but maybe next time.

As much as I want to finish this, I really want something without such a challenging background. I stitched all day Sunday, but between trying to get Miss Meow to leave me alone while stitching and an error in the challenging background I didn’t get as much done as I would like. I have to say Mooch could’ve cared less about my stitching and hope it stays that way!

Of course the million dollar question is “will Mooch ever grow into his ears?” I think he’s rather handsome like this, what say you?

Miss Meow is under the canvas and on my lap…AlleyCat would sleep like that forever, but never bothered my threads. I wonder if she will ever get that way?

Stay healthy and keep on stitching!

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. LOVE your new canvas! I can’t believe I haven’t seen it since I have a black cat. I had a kitty that used to sit under my canvas when I stitched, and she never did get over “flossing” her teeth on my thread. I know…yuck… Guess there is Rue floss preserved forever.
