So Hard to Say…

The needlepoint world lost another gentle giant that leaves a big hole in my heart. Kathryn Molineux of Shorebrids Designs departed for that special needlepoint shop in the heavens.

This is one of her designs that lives in my stash that someday I will be able to stitch for me, myself and I! A still life canvas which I have ideas, just wonderful ideas for this. It will have special meaning for me now. I have a few others of hers too amid my growing stash.

I loved talking with Katie on the phone, I especially looked forward to seeing her at market… that infectious laugh, that gleam in her eyes as she showed off her new designs for that year. Did I mention that infectios laugh… and I can still hear it now. Oh what a loss, but dear Katie… your spirit will live on in your canvases! RIP and know that you made the world a better place

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’m sorry for the loss of your friend, and the loss to the world of needlepoint. What wonderful memories the canvas will bring you when you stitch it.
