They’ve, or should I say WordPress has changed the way my blog functions, well for me anyway, so it’s been somewhat challenging as I stumble through it. I guess maybe if I blog more, it will become easier for me. Maybe that should be one of my New Year’s resolutions?! What do you think?
Do you have any resolutions yet? I’ve been reading lots of ideas on Facebook, where as one was “19 in 19.” Nineteen new or already started, needlepoint that is, in all sizes. Depending on what you pick, that could be very aggressive or a snap! I’ve got 4-5 ornaments that are close, so that would give me a great start. I would love to finish the piece that we started in France with Tony Minieri, but then for me it always depends on the shop and how much I work.
Speaking of finishes, this was my latest larger than an ornament piece!
It is a charted design that was in Needlepointers magazine about 10 years ago by Chottie Alderson. It was piece that I always wanted to stitch and when I stumbled on it in the Needlepoint Nation Stash Exchange on Facebook, I snapped it up! I thank the stitcher for parting with it and it has found a very good home.
When I took it to New Creations Picture Framing in San Marino, we really had a hard time finding just the right color frame. I said well why couldn’t we do 4 colors? Never for a moment did I think that they would take me seriously, well they did! And I’m thrilled with the way it came out. The pink cat was extremely challenging and I had to stitch it 2 or 3 times, so that one we’re calling AlleyCat…
My stitching assistant all settled in with me for some stitching time. AlleyCat and I both wish you a Happy New Year and here’s to great stitching in 2019!
