Back home & new website

It was wonderful to wake up in my own bed this morning! I’d been gone a week and it’s always good to come home. It’s a rainy, cloudy day so I’ve been stitching with a cat on my lap this afternoon. Here’s a peek at what I’m working on right now – I’m using the threads from the Summer Colorway I did for Rainforest Crunch. This is part of the middle and I’m working on the backgrounds and border now. It’s really fun…

I stopped at a great needlepoint shop in Montgomery, Alabama on the way home from TN & NC –  The Needle Bug. I walked in, said hello to Leigh, and then basked in the glory of being surrounded with well organized walls and racks of fibers and canvases, and every gadget you can imagine! Of course, I bought threads for future designs… This was my second trip – I went last December when I went to my brother’s for Christmas. I get to go back in three weeks as my nephew is getting married and I’ll be spending a few days up there. Here are some photos from Dec (we definitely aren’t wearing jackets now!) and I’m the short one! Stop by if you’re ever in the area – they’ll mail order too. These photos show just one small part of the shop.

My website has a new look – check it out! I reorganized it and set up some new pages. It should be easier to see my designs now that all of the shop related pages are gone. I still have some photos of the various colorways to put on but the website is basically done.  I am still selling off the shop inventory and will be posting more stuff next week.
Hope you’re stitching!

    Love the redesigned website. So easy to see all the collections. I cannot wait to see what you are designed now. I'm currently working on Tahiti, which I love!!
