New Stitch Guides

I've been promising myself that I would have stitch guides completed for several projects. Although it took longer than I thought, I'm pleased that I have completed three stitch guides for kits for Ridgewood Needlepoint.. On our website, we will be offering a Halloween Cat kit, Toes Up kit and The Stable Kit. The Halloween Cat by Amanda Lawford is charming as a candy bag. The design is on #13 mesh. We used fun threads and stitches to highlight the fuzziness of the cat. We also used composite stitches for the large pumpkin. I noticed that Jane from Chilly Hollow said that it was the right time to start for next Halloween.

In New Jersey, most beach towns require a beach tag for access. So we designed a canvas that could be framed with either cork or wire for securing the tage. The sunbathers are either watching the sailboats and motorboat go by; or in the ferryboat version, they're watching the ferry. Obviously, they've been out in the sun too long. Look at their toes. It's a fun canvas to stitch. And if people get started quickly, it could be finished for the summer.

Finally, we are offering The Stable. In Ridgewood, New Jersey, the Stable is a historic building that serves as the headquarters for the parks department. Our version is needlepointed in beautiful threads and stitches and dated. We are only going to offer this for a limited time as part of a series of sights in New Jersey.

Go to our website to see the pictures. They should be up soon!
