I am sorry for the lack of posts to the blog but I have been stitching like a mad woman. I am terribly behind on the 12 Days Panels and I apologize to those of you who are doing the club.
I decided I needed some other show besides NCIS to watch while stitching. So Saturday before last I started a West Wing Marathon. I love that show. Why can't we have more shows like that on T.V. today? I wonder if the powers that be would consider doing a show with Rob Lowe as the President, since they hinted that he had aspirations. What a great show that could be.
O.K. on to needlepoint topics...
When we had the Needlepoint Facebook group here several weeks ago, Brenda Stofft had designed a Scissor Case for them and we got many requests to make it into an ornament. Brenda sent me a picture and we are taking orders. Please call the shop to order 512-451-6931. I will place an order around June 15th so you can look for delivery probably beginning of August.
Cost is $55.00 and it will come with a guide. If you want threads just let us know when you place your order.
Sandy Arthur has asked that we be the exclusive shop for the"Beijing Butterflies" that she is doing for her next Mystery Class. You can get the particulars about the piece and other Mystery Classes she is doing on her blog

The canvas cost is $194.00. There is no thread kit yet as she is still stitching it.
Our goal is to get you your canvas by the beginning of August if you order your canvas by June 1st. If you order it after this date it may be a little longer.
When you call to order your canvas just let us know if would like threads and/or stretcher bars.
We are happy to order the other canvas she is offering as a class, "Easter Wreath."

Corliss came up with a great stitch that would be wonderful for fish scales or feathers. Use 2 different fibers for the 2 stitches.
Have a great weekend!!
