A Little More Blue Bonnets!

Well in more ways than one! I have fallen in love with these beautiful flowers right along with The Blue Bonnet Studio Stitching Retreat.

Mary Alice, standing in the middle…she really knows how to throw a party! Too much fun…Texas sized fun was packed into my 3 days. Thank you Mary Alice and your husband John too, for all of your hard work. I had a wonderful time.

Meredith was demonstrating Or Nue’ or nuance of gold. It is a beautiful effect! I have used that stitch since you have taught me to do that a class or two ago.

If you can’t find the right thread color…paint it! Using a Sharpie, the absolutely perfect color was created. Yes I will admit you need to be brave, but just like a stitch that you aren’t happy with, you can always take it out and try again.

Meredith is brushing up this duck to make it extra fuzzy. So cute! A woven picot will be added to create the beak. Now why didn’t I think of that?

Beautiful flowering tree that we saw walking back from lunch. I meant to ask what it is? Can you see the butterfly that stopped there much to our delight?

Meredith was creating a beaded snowflake in hand to add to a Christmas stocking.

Meet Dakota, the steer brought to pose with us by Sandra Maag Reddell and her husband. A little entertainment for us before our banquet. A wonderful evening that was capped off by a Texas story teller…and she told some very tall tales!

Time to go home came all to fast, but as much as I love getting away…I love coming home just as much.

I did remember to hide this from AlleyCat before I left…as it seems to get kidnapped when I leave town. It needs a little help which I will try to accomplish with the felting needles.

yes I am talking about you AlleyCat. 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. Love the way Alley Cat has “glommed on” to that table leg. You have such interesting furry friends living with you. 😉

    • She has been working on with Maryellen over the last few years in class…so I am thinking that there is no formal stitch guide written. But if you contact her maybe she will write one for you?!
