So What’s New?

A new book! by Lynda Richardson of Dream House Ventures that was introduced at the Dallas Market…and quickly sold out! A great new addition to the world of needlepoint books and ooh so different than what is already in your library.

The book is made up of these wonderful life stories… and there are more. You will also find some blank pages where you could pen your own.

What a great gift to one of your stitching friends, where you could use one of these pages to write your own thoughts to that BFF.

The stitches are created for backgrounds, big and not so big by assembling tent stitches in very creative patterns.

A new thread by Vineyard Silk…a strandable Merino wool that likens itself to Medici. It comes in the same colors as does the Vineyard Merino. I have not used it yet, but always  thinking where I could!

New colors in Silk Lamé Braid by Rainbow Gallery. Thank you Sally! They did have other new thread colors, in other lines. some new oranges and so much more. Ask your LNS the next time you are thread shopping.

You know these magents are like potato chips! you just can’t get enough and I sure came home with a BIG handful of ’em. Annie Lane is miniaturizing her canvases on these so that you can match your magnets to your canvas! This one is Danger Lurks and reminds me of one of my cats many years ago that thought my big beautiful asparagus fern was a great nap spot.

Very exciting news! a new website that is being launched that will assemble all in one spot all of those needlepoint events Check it out! It will be great way to find out where your favorite teacher is headed or what retreat will you be going to next? I know that my stitching calendar for 2015 is quickly filling already.

I have 4 projects that are on the must do list this weekend, some stitching and some stitch guides… and one I finished up this morning already! Yes I have been working for a few hours and now its time to go and clean the kitchen, have breakfast and see what those feline kids are up to.

This is so AlleyCat! 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?
