Thanksgiving, a day to give thanks for all the things in life that I am most thankful for! But why do we need to wait for “that day” why can’t we just be thankful all the time?

I thought I would treat myself to some flowers from Adelaide’s. This is my favorite seasonal rose called Leonidas; named after a king of the same name.

So much to be thankful for, whether it just be on Thanksgiving or any day…First and foremost on my list is my family and especially my sister.

I am thankful to be able to give thanks for my friends, my tried and true friends that are always there for you through thick and thin and through all the ups and downs in your life. I give thanks to Elizabeth for believing in me that I could do it. I especially give thanks for my visits there to escape from it all and for the love of the poodles and of course my BFF, the cat. He crossed over the Rainbow Bridge just a few days ago and I will miss you Elmore James, but I know you are doing what you always did…having words with Reggie.

I give thanks that I love my work, whether it be on the computer drawing stitches or actually sitting on the couch stitching my heart out and travelling to shops to teach.

I give thanks to the wonderful people that I have met through the magic of the Internet. To all of you that I have met and tell me that “I read your blog everyday!”…well that I am very thankful for.


I can’t forget Sylvester and AlleyCat, who are a constant source of entertainment and so much more.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving… and see you next week!


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. I am thankful for the wonderful sources of inspiration in the crafting world that I read on a daily basis, your blog among them, Vicky! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Pet the kitties, give them big snuggles from all of us. Thanks for great inspiration. I love it when you put in a stitch and take it out because it’s just not right. Makes me feel like there’s hope for me, who does lots of unstitching because I don’t like the look. Take care.

  3. I’m thankful for many things this year. Among them iare the inspiration I received from the great class we had with you at Enriched Stitch and the great photos and stories in your blog. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Happy Belated Thanksgiving Vicky! We do have so many things to be thankful for and I do count your blog among my thanks – thank you for the laughs, sharing your beautiful cats, for the endless inspiration and for all the time/thought/energy that goes into your beautiful blog.
