I guess you could say I had a little insider information! See I stitched this piece for the magazine with the publication in the July/August issue of Needlepoint Now.
We have this beautiful window at the shop and I love, love, love doing the windows! Did I say love? well I really do…a few hours to transform an area into something pleasing to the eyes. There is a lot of foot traffic that passes by the shop, so what a great way to catch their attention!
Being that I had this “insider info,” I ordered a few Finding Agnes canvases with the matching magnets…well what you were thinking? Then I started shopping for “stuff” to make a beachy window. I did dig through my storage unit not once, but twice as I looked for stuff I had before and found what I was looking for!
You can see as I progress along with the window… realizing that I needed to move that straw bag as it wasn’t working where it was!
Pleased with it so far! Just need to pull the threads called for in the stitch guide that is in the magazine…
Now we just need the magazine to come in…maybe today! and oh BTW can I tell you how thrilled I am with the way that the cover of the magazine came out?!
I guess you could call this a shameless plug, but if you just gotta have this canvas, magnet and threads…just give the Needle Nook of La Jolla a call @ 800-685-1711 or e-mail us firstname.lastname@example.org
It was a real joy stitching this canvas, no reverse stitching, no this, no that, just sheer pleasure in stitching…oh did I tell you that I named the dog? He is “famous” Amos and he did find Agnes the Crab. Why Amos? when I taught last year for Cindy Matthews at Wellesley Needlepoint, which is the distributor for these canvas, Cindy’s dog at the shop is Amos and they look like each other.
To my cats …please forgive me for stitching a D-O-G!
and until next time…keep on stitching
