In High Cotton!

I am back and I was definitely livin’ in the high cotton! High cotton you say? it generally means that one is to be doing very well…very, very, very well!

This is the front door of In Stitches. Of course I am being greeted by a feline resident. Food and water is out for the feral commumity and this morning the bowl was empty…so we were getting the look! and I know that look all too well.

The class aboslutely ranks up there as one of the best! best! best! did I say THE BEST? I am in the process of getting a few hundred pictures imported to my laptop and these few just barely scrape the surface. So not to worry, lots more to share with you.

A great big thank you to The Embellishment Squad, In Stitches and all the great stitchers that were in class. A big shout out to my table mates Elizabeth, Ansley, Nedra, Nancy, Patty and Linda who were the best and made the time so much fun!

Me, who NEVER, EVER wins anything, was one of the lucky ones who’s name was selected for a most amazing door prize on the last day. Wow! wow! wow! could it get any better than this? A great canvas by Amanda Lawford along with these wonderful threads which Tony Minieri personally selected…which means that they are just purr~fect!

Meredith and Tony were so happy that they were dancing!

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that today is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the celebration of reading across America that goes with it! He did live here in San Diego…well actually La Jolla. Happy birthday Dr. Suess and Green Eggs and Ham is still my favorite.

Thank you to everyone who left wonderful comments as Mostly Needlepoint celebrates a birthday. I have so enjoyed reading each and everyone of them and again I thank you! I will work through all the comments and select the winners through random selection… and maybe a few might be selected based on, well you know just because!

Of course I was stitching last night and of course AlleyCat had to get comfy cozy!

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. You were already high on the fun factor and then to win a door prize on top of that?!?! I’m glad you had a ball! Sometimes for fun, my daughters and I talk in Seuss-speak. That doesn’t last long though, as we break down in laughter. I love passing the various elementary schools on Dr Seuss’ birthday….all the little ones wearing classroom-made Cat in the Hat hats!

  2. Enjoyed the class & meeting you. Especially our Buckhead Diner dinner experience! What a girls night out! The Embellishment Squad & In Stitches are a perfect setup. Hope to see you again in a class. Now back to my stitching.
