Around the middle of each month is always exciting!  This is the time range we try to post the current lesson for the month.

This month has been so much fun - so what is new? Right?  I always have fun.

Snow Happy Trio has its fourth lesson this month.  Really?  This is going so quickly. This month we completed the last snow person of the trio.

The next 2 months will be devoted to the remaining accessories - wreath, tree, hats, flowers, scarves, etc.

Christmas Stars is on Day 5 - Five Golden Rings!  

Moon Gazer is in its third session.

This month we did the rabbit.  Now we are ready for the remaining fern, bushes, etc.

Catitudes has it's third session also.  This month we introduced a darning pattern background I designed for this canvas.

These scurrying stylized mice will be in my book on darning patterns that is in the draft stages.

Additionally, this month we have two new designs joining the crowd.

Reindeer with Bells Blanket by Raymond Crawford.

This guy will be sharing the same background sky and ground snow as the others for the first lesson as I am approaching them as a series and the main elements will be the same.  The accessories and stitch directions will be the kicker.

And last but not least the ever fun Dog Gone Good from JP Needlepoint makes its introduction.

Mr. Cool Dude was up first.  Besides everything else about him I just fell in love with his tail!  Whoever is next?

Goodies are continually coming in for our upcoming Riverboat Stitching Cruise - Stitching Down the Danube.  It is very exciting as it becomes more and more real each day.  I'm stitching away on the optional cruise piece as well.  At my recent runaway my peers seemed to like how it was progressing.  Several commented that the picture just did not do it justice.  How many times do we say that?  Hope to have something to share soon so those of you who are interested may order your kit and have it in your creative little hands!  Look at this wonderful staircase on our SS Beatrice!  

I am hopeful that we can quit playing long enough to have a group picture to commemorate this event!  If you would like to come along just email me for details at We would so love to have you join us!  The more the merrier.
