exactly what does this have to do with needlepoint?

So you are thinking…exactly what does this have to do with needlepoint? well stay tuned! Raymond Crawford made a personal appearance in the shop at the ANG Seminar and we need a little dinner before a night of hard work!

Raymond took us to Petterino’s, a wonderful Italian place in the heart of the theater district. Well worth the walk. Even though it was quite abit farther than you told us Raymond Crawford!

The walls were covered with these charicatures, many which were recongnizeable right away. I asked the waiter if they were all by the same artist and he told us that 3 ladies draw them. If they had been signed, then that person had dined there.

and then taking pictures of Raymond taking pictures.

Acting silly on the way back to the hotel. Lisa was with us and gosh we need longer arms for these selfies!

Tonight was Expo! night, where we were selling our Chicago hot dog canvas, with magnet and stitch guide.

They were quite popular, and there is but a handful left if you just gotta have one or wished that you had bought more than one. Contact Raymond on Facebook, or leave me a message and I am sure that Raymond would be happy to get one off to you!

Raymond hard at work processing the credit cards!

Stay tuned for more from Expo night including 2 new canvases from Mindy… one which ┬áhad to come home with me. Just saying…

You haven’t seen the kids in awhile. They have been together for 8 years now and when AlleyCat was a kitten, Sylvester really did bully her…all the time. Maybe ’cause he was the middle son or maybe ’cause he just didn’t like her. They have always gotten along, no hissing or any of that, but I believe that AlleyCat has just tolerated him. They normally don’t sleep close enough so that they are touching…well Friday I was sitting on the couch stitching and Sylvester is always there, usually sleeping on my threads. AlleyCat jumped up to see what was going on and usually when she see Sylvester there, she leaves right away… but not this time. She curled up so that they were touching and stayed that way for a few hours. Maybe she is softening up in her old age.

and until next time… 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?
