March Madness Begins!

Are you a basketball fan? I am not, but I do follow this madness with the bracket selections and the teams that move on. I have read where the day that the selecting all of the winning teams in your brackets is the least productive day in the workplace! I will pay attention to the travels of our home team the Aztecs and of course Kentucky who was not yet lost a game yet this year, am I right about the latter my sistah Meredith? I know that she is crazy about her home team!

and speaking of Meredith and wasn’t that was a great segue to continue telling you about The Embellishment Squad?

Today I sorta kinda wanted to share with you inside this most amazing shop, In Stitches, which is where this class was this time.

Tony and Meredith are dancing up a storm here and so much a part of this class is their comaraderie amongst them.

This is the Rainbow Room with a center table for taping canvases and pulling threads.

Now why the Rainbow Room? well it is mostly Rainbow Gallery Threads!

The shop is located in Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia…notice the bucks on the wall? Clever isnt’t that? and more about those one of these days!

Located in an older home in Buckhead and each room is filled with threads and beads and canvases…oh my!

Defintely a stitcher’s paradise!

Thank you Jeanene for creating the stitchers heaven! Sign me up for the next Embellishment Squad as I’ll be back!

AlleyCat is ready to go to work!

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. I love shops housed in old houses, especially needlework, fabric/quilting, and yarn shops! I love restaurants in old houses too.

      • I’ve never eaten at a restaurant housed in an old church. That would be spectacular, especially with high ceilings and stained glass. I have eaten in a restaurant housed in the lobby of an old apartment building. It is now an ice cream shop, complete with the original Mexican tiled fireplace and mantle, and rustic tile floor.

        • There is a favorite spot when I visit the Needlepoint Now studios in Eugene, OR thats an old church turned into a darling dining spot! A great restaraunt that I visited years ago in Lexington was also an old church/school?
