We are so happy to hear the stories behind your stitches! So we wanted to share Sharon Cuppetelli's words about “Sweet Land” with you: "I’m working on your lovely piece for my family in Michigan. We will hang it surrounded by pics of our loved ones who served our country. I love the simplicity of this design. It speaks volumes. Bless you.
There are days when the demands of life and necessary details of running a small business get in the way of stitching! Oh for some spare time to sit down with needle and thread! We're sure it will come, but meanwhile, we're tying up the ends of market orders so we can get much-anticipated products out to shops and on to stitchers. Hope you're enjoying some creative time with needle and thread!
The original pom pom had to be an Acacia blossom!
Whan an AMAZING time we had in Nashville last weekend!
We're madly packaging these fun and practical kits to make their debut at the Nashville Needlework Market the end of the month.
Perhaps you've watched our periodic posts as these projects took shape!
Last summer while traveling in New Hampshire, we stumbled upon a quaint antique hinged box. Clearly home-made and functional, it contained a small old perforated paper scene (box in foreground above).
Every new project generates excitement at NeedleWorkPress, much the same way great enthusiasm greets the new year.
In recent travels, everywhere we turned, garlands adorned windows, doorways, mantles and bookshelves. Most sparkled with lights or glitter or glass ornaments. Some were carefully woven fragrant, fresh greens. All beckoned the viewer to take a closer look, to savor the sights of the season. There had to be a way to capture them on linen before Christmas arrived.
Sometimes too many good and wonderful things are happening (not to mention the fact that they're complicated by the challenging moments). But, for now, the peace and plenty of a wonderful Thanksgiving with family is giving way to making our hearts and homes ready for Christmas. Decorating has always been a big part of the process, and this year we're thrilled to add a fun little stitched piece to the mix.
