January 18, 2020


This past week we finished the design Just a Sip!

Some things we did were to fill the tub with water.

We also added the rug and slippers.

So we said goodbye to Just a Sip and hello to At The Seashore!  

In this beginning we introduced several vertical stripe techniques to create the wall covering.

Invoices are being processed for the February class of Fall Welcome Wreath with Scarecrow.  Still time to join us for this guy.

There are so many threads and techniques I want to share with you in this design.  Who knew there were so many oranges?  Email us at if you wish to play with us. The shop that is kitting this has prices ready to share with you if you need assistance with obtaining the canvas and/or materials.

This guy is an experiment and we called No Schedule, No Stress, No Deadlines class. Life is definitely getting in the way with this wonderful project because it was not my intention to have it stretch out this long.  So, to expedite things we are going to post sessions that may not have stitched samples.  That is what we have done this month.  If someone has a specific question they need help with before I get a sample stitched they are to ask and I will move that area up on the list to share.  I will share stitched areas as the WIP goes along - they will just be behind the instruction portion.  The provides information so those who desire to do so may move forward. This month we are doing the Professor's head and top hat!

We also shared another session on Arctic Parade - don't miss that email.

This week's feature is for a Lee leather bag with window for needlework insert.

This beautiful bag is a wonderful way to display your needlework.  You can secure it to the self-adhesive backing for insert loose for the flexibility of changing designs with the event.  The black leather bag features a shoulder strap, studded feet on the bottom, inside zippered pockets and other dividers, and an outside zippered pocket as well.  It has a zipped closing at the top.  There is only one of this item in the shop and it is priced to go!  $95 plus $17 shipping/handling.  US shipping only.


Do you happen to live in an area where it is cold and yucky right now?  Well I do!  And what better time is there to dream of our upcoming Stitching Adventure for Hawaiian Island Hopping.  So far we have our date confirmed and wanted to get that to you as early as possible so you can make plans.  Be sure to mark your calendars to save the date of April 15-24, 2021. Brochures are being created and we will share prices with you as soon as we can.  Just wanted to make sure you had the dates for now.


Fingers crossed that this week's posting works better than that of last week.  Here goes!
This week's stitch is Byzantine for the 'B' block.

Here I used an overdyed thread. The background is probably something like 4-6 ply of Splendor.  I used the same thread for all the block backgrounds so that might be one you make sure you have enough.

Enjoy the week and stay warm till next time!
