More Stitching!

Day Two and Tony was our fearless leader at The Embellishment Squad Class at In Stitches in Atlanta. He was working on a Point de Tresse stitch which was creating one of her bangle bracelets.

Tony is offering some words of wisdom…

Now he is working on a stitch for Nancy’s canvas, and she sat on the other side of me. I had the best group I could have hoped for at my table… while making some wonderful new friends and building more sisters in stitching. I will get to see most of them in August when they travel west and so looking forward to it!

Here’s a closer shot of Nancy’s happy piece, another canvas by Zecca! Note the colors of her needle minder and her canvas…

In case you forgot, this is my Zecca canvas and I am stitching one of my flowers. I am sad to say that I have not had time to work on this since I came back as my stitching time is being used on other must do pieces.

Class was over and Jeanene decorated in the spirit of Chinese New Year. A delicious spread of munchies and more. As we needed to build up our strength for what was ahead!

Origami or the art of paper folding as we made Ort containers. A fun night!

I texted this picture to Elizabeth at The Needlepoint Now Studios the other day and told her that if I was running a little behind (no pun intended) that it wasn’t my fault.


In case some of you wonder why I have a laptop sitting in front of a big monitor… that gets used when I am working on stitch charts, as you see here. Luckily there was no supurr~visor in the way!

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?
