I did not get aa chance to share the fun event we had in January. Joey from Houston turned 60 and had Tony Minieri design a piece just for her. She invited 14 of her friends and they all came to the store for a 60th birthday party and had a great time.
We are just stitching away here at The Needle Works.
We are all working on our fish for the "UNDER THE DEEP BLUE SEA" series that is starting in June. You can get more information on the series and sign up on the website.
Jayna is working on a Texas piece from Raymond Crawford. It will be availble with a stitchguide in May. Here are a couple of sneak peek pictures as a teaser. The canvas is $138.00 and the guide will be $25.00. We will have a thread kist cost shortly.
I have been working on Labors of Love Kindergarten Nativity. It will be availble starting in June. The threads will build as you work on the series. We will start with Baby Jesus.
The mystery of where the cute wreath came from has been solved. Elizabeth Marvin who used to work here and now owns her own florist made it for us. What an adorable idea. If you need any floral arrangements give her a call. Her store is on the famed Kerbey Lane across from Kerbey Lane Cafe and is called La Fleur Vintage. Once again Elizabeth thanks for the wreath.
but we are toasty warm here in the store. We had the fire logs put into the fireplace just in time. Medici is honkered down and Marilyn Payne from Las Cruces is just stiching away.
Rosalee Moon recently joined ANG (American Needle point Guild) and is taking advantage of the Cyper Classes. Her first completed cyperclass piece . It is called Florentine Fancywork and the designer is Toni McKelley.
We got to the store this morning and someone had left us a present on the door handle. We now have an adorable wreath with clumps of differant color and kind of thread to hand on our door. Thank you so much to anonymous doner, whoever you are.
Because it is so windy outside, we are going to hang it inside for the time being.
Between Llano and Fredericksburg on Highway 16 there is a beautiful road called the Willow City Loop. It meanders through private ranches and it just amazing. The vistas and fields of wildflowers are amazing. Because of the rain and cold winter we had the Bluebonnets are particularly stunning. The white Poppies make the fields look they are covered in snow.
