So I’ve been told that it’s been a really long time since I last blogged?! I’m thrilled that you’ve missed me and hopefully I still remember how to do this…or should I say hopefully they haven’t changed too much.
So far, so good! Let me start off with the loves of my life! Mooch and Miss Meow. I really did win the lottery when I rescued these 2 from the Humane Society. A few of their few favorite things are supurrvising my stitching as they are here or:
Bird watching or as I say viewing kitty tv! If you look in the upper right you will see a birdie. It sat there quite a while as did the cats. I don’t let these guys out on the balcony as I did their predecessors as Mooch runs around the house like a crazy one and I don’t want him running so hard that he will go over the balcony!
So what have I been doing lately besides working? I went to A Stitch in Time in San Marino for a class with the Embellishment Squad, which is Meredith Willett, Tony Minieri and Suzanne Howren. Meredith loves these lemon tarts that they make at the bakery across the street from the shop, so I had to bring some to her. She did share!
So this was my canvas that I worked on. A custom canvas of Mooch that was painted by Patti Mann. It was a picture that I’ve used on Facebook more than once and for some reason it won’t let me upload it! and everyone would say you need to put that on canvas. Patti volunteered and I said, well why not?! She did a fabulous job with it! Another time for that picture…I promise!
I was tweaking my beads and threads here. First I will tackle the border as I need that to have somewhere to anchor my background. Then I will work on Mooch and beading the pot. Beading you say am I crazy? Well yes I am!
Last but not least, I was lucky enough to get in on stitching a jockey silk for the Neighdlepoint project. Lexington, KY is being overrun with 400+ fiberglass horses and this one is special. It will be covered with these stitched jockey silks of the previous Kentucky Derby winners. Mine was Twenty Grand, the 1931 winner. To find out more, look the up on Facebook or Google it! I’m tempted to visit over the summer to see it in person!
I will try not to disappear this time…plus I need to figure out why it is rejecting some of my pictures! So for now I will say see you sooner than later.
Welcome back! Love the purr-sonal needlepoint of Mooch! Will you have one painted for Miss Meow also? Enjoy baseball season with your Padres! My Giants are trying to catch them!
I should have one for Miss Meow, just need to find the right picture. Giants had a tough night last night!
So glad that you are back!
Glad to see that you are doing well and still stitching!
Welcome back, Vicky! So glad to get your news, and a guaranteed sighting of two of the cutest cats ever is such a bonus. Happy stitching; do keep us informed, because your work is always inspirational and your posts are always fun.
Thank you so much!
Welcome back! Missed you. Glad to hear that all is okay and you’re just busy.
Vicki, it would be great to have you visit Lexington and see the horses!
I would love to!
