4th of July March has arrived

Leave a comment

The new designs by Ashley Dillon at Tapestry Tent have arrived and they are even better than the photos! I have started on the the 4th of July and will move on to the Thanksgiving canvas in a week or two. If you want one of these, it might be best to order now since they are going to be very popular!

I will be posting my progress on Tips and Techniques.

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!

New Needlepoint Designs from Brenda Stofft

Leave a comment

A wonderful customer of mine introduced me to the canvas art work of Brenda Stofft. It’s such a treat to discover a “new” designer, at least one new to me.

What I love….

The Halloween canvases are either a little scary or absolutely smile-provoking. Her Easter pull toys are so darned cute and her sheep are charming. The Santas, especially the larger ones riding different animals, are Christmas classics. And if you are a cat (or bunny) fan, her magical critters will definitely win your heart.

I’m stitching my Ark as fast as I can because I know I am keeping a few of these great canvases. Hmm–should I choose Easter, Halloween or Christmas?

They are all available on our web site and 20% off until May 26 2011.

The Needlepoint Birds are returning to the Bristly Thistle

Leave a comment

The Labors of Love clip-on birds are coming home to roost from the finishers and they are spectacular. Quick and fun to stitch, they are also addictive.

Now that all things spooky (and perhaps glow in the dark) have been packed away, it’s time to relax and get ready for Thanksgiving.

I noticed I have only a few turkeys to display for this month, so I have started stitching the Elegant 3D Turkey from Labors of Love. I have had so much fun pulling feathery threads and searching numerous books for just the right stitches. This handsome guy will be gracing our table next year. Stay tuned for updates.

Happy stitching!
