Here is Diane's stocking. 
Unfortunately the close up pictures I took did not come out
so you will have to look closely at her attention to detail. 
Diane put buttons and beads on this to make it come to life.

Guess What?  Just when I think I am getting the hang of the Blog I get another surpise.  Today I was going through some of the older posts and low and behold on December 1st I saw Fran's picture of Stanford University.  I am not sure how it got there now because it was definitely not there originally. You should really all check it out.  Fran designed the canvas and Nancy painted it for her.  If you take the time you could have one from your alma mater too.

Thinking back to a calmer season, Helen made this adorable decoration and had the finisher add the tassels to each side.  I believe it was purchased for the Fall Themed Party we held at the shop.

Monday, December 12, 2011

It is such a busy time of the year with shopping, wrapping and parties.  And we at the shop are busy with finishing, decorating and Trunk Shows.  As you see here we received all the new High Cotton Colors this week.  Come have a peek at them.

Bug Eye

This is something every stitcher should own.  In the trade we call it a bug eye.  With this tool you are able to look over your canvas before you send it to a finisher to see if you have missed any stitches.

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Please take a moment to look at this magnificent Tallis bag our customer Helen made for her 2 year old grandson.  The colors she selected really make the canvas come alive and Helen did a wonderful job stitching this.

Want to be Happier?

I wanted to share an article that Sally gave me from the Ladies Home Journal (July 2011).
Working with your hands can flood your brain with natural antidepressants.  Needlepoint is a great skill to learn at any age.  It will help decrease your stress level.  It helps you cultivate mindfulness and the sense of oneness with your activity.  It will give you a greater sense of control.  You will benefit even if you start small and you will feel a sense of accomplishment sooner.
