I’m in Love…yet Again!

Remember when I stitched this? An old fashioned bicycle by Alice Peterson… and the star of the show in this one is the River Silks…

well I still have this canvas of hers. They were originally meant to be proposed for classes at TNNA. The designer made them smaller and on 18 mesh just for the class. A fun relaxing piece, but it was not meant to be part of the education program. I still want to stitch it for her…one of these days!

This one has lots and lots of color and it needs something different…and yes you are still wondering, exactly what have I fallen in love with THIS time?

THIS! this Planet Earth Fiber Silk Ribbon! Look at all these lush colors…and yes I really fell in love with this. Am I being fickle?

Thank you to Planet Earth who sent me this great selection of colors for both this piece and to be reviewed for the magazine.

I needed to write my review on this for Needlepoint Now and you know I just need to stitch with it first. I am not going to just say that I love something or that it is wonderful to work with unless I really have stitched with it. I really did just want to just sit down and finish stitching this right then and there! Then I started thinking, what other canvas can I use this ribbon on?

It comes in 4mm, 7mm and 10mm in 5 yard increments and on these great little cards. They thought of the shops and space when they designed this presentation! Comes in solid colors and tonals, which means that the edges are overdyed.

Yes I am fickle and yet in love again.

AlleyCat, what are you doing up there? She kinda knows that she shouldn’t be there as when I asked her this, she meowed back at me!

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?

  1. An additional great feature…the slit in the card (I’m sure it has a better name) so the ribbon doesn’t unwind. Isn’t it a joy to use?

  2. I’m in love with the colors of these ribbons, so I had to get a few. I’ve never used silk ribbon. I think I need to play! Are you having fun yet?
