The Gingerbread House!

Remember this darling little canvas? by PepperberryDesigns

It was designed to the magnet…usually it is the other way around. I am always fascinated as to how the designers design, and they are all different. And trust me, I ask them all! Some draw on paper and some on their computer, some use a specific program to design and then some design by painting straight to the canvas!

I really tried many different things on this canvas and the peak alone I stitched and restitched 4 times…OMG! For me the count of the canvas dictates the stitch that I can do and believe you me I think and try lots of combinations.

Beads, French knots, darning pattern, deconstructed Flair and so much more finished out this canvas. I see that I might need a few more couching stitches to compact that unruly plume of smoke coming out of the chimney.

So if you love this and gotta have it (it was really a fun stitch) it will be available at the TNNA show in January along with a stitch guide through Pepperberry Designs. Ask your LNS to order one for you! They may even be available at the show through the new Immediate Delivery Service that they are starting with this show or at Sample It.

No I didn’t make breakfast at The Cottage on Saturday, but I am thinking that I am going this morning. Today is our monthly get together stitching and I will probably be bringing my laptop with me instead so that I can work on stitch guides. I will have one more finish to share with you, something that I have been working on day and night this week.

The cats kept me company as I was stitching and actually shared the Christmas Quilt! Do you believe in Christmas miracles? well I do!

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. Sofas are so much cozier when one has a cat (or two) for company! Brrrr, the gingerbread house looks cold on the outside but at least it’s glowing on the inside.
