I wish I could share some of this rain with areas that really need it.  It is so saturated here and becoming very muddy at Arthur Acres.  The weather is what I always refer to as pneumonia weather. We have a beautiful warm time and then it suddenly becomes cool and damp.  I'm ready for Spring.

Working on upcoming lessons for March.  This is my happy place.  In addition we are setting up new classes.  Always exciting.  If you have been following you know that we have been invoicing for the upcoming Catitudes from JP Needlepoint.

I have made an effort to hunt out some different threads for some of you to experience.  And I have also designed a background specific for this piece as well.  So we'll see how the journey goes for everyone.  While Friday was the deadline to order and pay for the pre-ordered thread/embellishment kit for this class I'm sure the shop can prepare more kits it's just that they may require reordering some items outside the preorders so you would need to be more patient.

We have just gotten over a tremendous delay caused by Japan not sending the correct threads to RG and so have had to wait an unusually long amount of time to finish up the Snow Happy Trio kits.  The shop is working diligently to get these ready for shipment as soon as the errant threads come through the door!

This is a fun stitch as well.  I created a different arrangement of stitches for the first scarf covered in the upcoming lesson so happy about that result.  

Reservations are coming in for some of the new classes that are being added.  One class is the Penny MacLeod design Dana.  This is our first Penny MacLeod introduction in the Online Mystery Class Series.  Looking forward to working through this one.

If you would like to join us email at for details.

And, QUICKIES!  These guys are always fun and the new Butterfly Series from Burnett & Bradley promise to keep that venue going! Big decision is figuring out which one to start with first.

Such colorful designs - they just spell out happy stitching.  Again, just email us at for details.

Right now my top priority is preparing for the Needle Nook of LaJolla Retreat.  I am so honored to get to return and teach there once more.  We have such a great group of students and the shop personnel go above and beyond to make sure all our needs are met.  Hopefully I will get some pictures to post as we go along.

Have a great weekend and we'll see what we can come up with for next week.
