So many Canvases! So little Time!


OMG! I never published this morning… my apologies!

So many canvases! so little time! if we could just add more hours in our stitching day as we add new canvases, threads and beads…wouldn’t life be even more grand?

This was a new favorite of mine introduced by Sundance Designs. Isn’t this¬†wonderful? and no I didn’t order this one.

While I am in the Halloween spirit, how about this great stack of pumpkins from JP Needlepoint? I love canvases like this as each pumpkin is like a new canvas on it’s own as they are all so different! If you are not a fan of black canvas, you can get it on white. This is one time that I would work the background as I finish a pumpkin as then you are not overwhelmed with background at the end.

I love these ornament from the collection. Very, very elegant and could be enhanced with lots of Kreinik or crystals and beads to make them even more beautiful!

New additions to the Sew Much Fun line. These girls are so clever with what they design and then stitch! Gotta love ’em.

New bags from Lee. I really like the green one…now to just find a canvas that fits!

I have really been doing a whole lotta stitching these days and I am sure you are wondering a few things? like why haven’t I shared any of it with you? well some of them are ¬†not shareable at the moment…and let me just give you a little rundown of what’s in the stitching queue at the moment. Three somewhat small canvases for a future class to be-the canvas for my class at Destination Dallas-a project for Raymond for the ANG Seminar in Chicago-and speaking of Raymond, 4 more pieces for the Halloween Train-a fun Halloween canvas for Point of It All Designs-Mrs. Cat for Pepperberry Designs-a canvas for Maggie which I am sorry that I haven’t touched yet! sorry Maggie- and I am waiting for an Annie Lane canvas to arrive any day now….whew I have lost count? how about you?

and then you wonder why I haven’t worked on the Leigh Holly Hills Santa? well I have somewhat and have changed my mind 100 and 1 times…well not really, but close. And this is why I like to stitch the piece as I write the guide as what you envision in your mind as the perfect stitch, it always just doesn’t work out! I will have an update for you this weekend and will share the chart for the dotted swiss. And in all the books out there, I have never found it… except for Google! go figure.

I have to laugh at Sylvester! this is the half-way hiding…so if I can’t see you, does that mean that I am really hiding?

and until next time…keep on stitching

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. Good Morning Vicky,
    I, too, love the 1st canvas. It reminds me of the opening from the TV show Bewitched.
    Jo Ippolito Christensen has a stitch in her books called Dotted (pg. 235 in the 2nd edition). After reading your description and looking online, I believe this may be the same stitch as the Dotted Swiss. I have used this stitch a few times and really like the effect.
    Have a great day.
