Over 250 nutcrackers and Limoges boxes have arrived this week from Julia’s Needleworks.  This is a great time to finish (or start) your nutcracker collection!  They come in 3 sizes and can be finished as ornaments or just stand alone decorations.

The Limoges boxes are unique to Julia and make wonderful gifts.  I stitched the Grand Hotel and gave it to Amelia Musser as a house gift.

We hit the jackpot last week with a package from Amanda. More new designs and small boxes that could be for jewelry or something even more valuable.

You can see them on the website.

The Ark finished!


I had so much fun stitching this piece from Kelly Clark and loved the results so much that I went for a custom acrylic box to display it.

My favorite frame shop did a fabulous job of creating the box. If your local shop can’t do this, try mine: The Framing Establishment in Jacksonville FL, 904-384-7724.

New Marches from Ashley Dillon


As many know, I have written stitch guides for Ashley Dillon of Tapestry Tent’s first 3 Marches–Easter, Halloween and Christmas.

I have pre-ordered Thanksgiving and the 4th of July and I will be writing stitch guides for them. As always, the canvas price includes my stitch guide.

You can pre-order now on our website.

This is going to be great fun!

Sea World Spyglass View – new needlepoint from Dede

This canvas stopped me in my tracks at market–I bought one for my stash and I don’t feel guilty at all. The canvas is so inventive and the stitching shown in the photo is incredible. The photo shows the model stitching in detail.

Dede sent the canvases with a one page “teaser” for the new book she is due to publish next month. The book will be called “That’s Not Needlepoint” and this canvas is featured in Seascape Inspirations. And yes, I ordered the book at market, too.
