Is it Christmas Already?

I got home the other day to find a little box waiting for me at my door. What could it be? I haven’t ordered anything in the last few weeks. Is It Christmas already? No it’s not, as the Christmas coundown clock says it’s about 40something days yet till the man in the red suit arrives.

What could it be? Well my sistah (Meredith Willett of Elizabeth Turner Collection) spoils me as she is always sending samplings of her new magnets. Trust me, I buy lots of them too…what is it about these magnets? It’s worse than a bag of potato chips!

They make great little gifts for a friend or for yourself, a special remembrance of a shop you’ve just been in, a new city that you’ve just visited… a new canvas or just anything!

I am finishing up 2 canvases that are models for designers which I will be thrilled to say I am finished…and I am sure that they will be too. This way we can get them finished in time for market. I have to say thank you to all the finishers out there that always make sure that the models for market are finished in time, even around the busy holidays! I then have 2 little ones to start, both which will be stitches for the season.

I am taking a canvas enhancement class with Tony Minieri this weekend…a still life by Katie Molineux of Shorebirds. A beautiful canvas which I know that Tony will knock my socks off with his thread and stitch selection. Looking forward to lots of laughs, being with great friends, breakfast at The Cottage every morning and learning new and exciting stitch and thread combinations! So will see you next week…

You know those carry trays for your coffee? well the cats absolutely love them! and especially AlleyCat, who tears it up, sits on it, sits in it and everything else in between!

and until next time…keep on stitching

About Vicky

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. Hi Vicki –
    Just wanted to remind you that the magnets can also be worn. We put them on our aprons when working at M’s. Meredith even got us glitzy name tag magnets to wear at work. These magnets are so versatile! Enjoy! Karen J

  2. The magnets are adorable! Where is the best place to get them? They would make a great gift for our gift exchange at the SBC party. I looked on the web site but I think they are only sold through shops.
