Trees, Trees, Oh Wonderful Trees

I am so excited!  Kelly Clark has a new club!  Well actually two clubs.  One is good.  Two is better, right?

Several years ago Kelly designed a serious of trees.  They are just the prettiest ever and yes, they are in my personal "to do" pile.  Lets not go there.  I do love them all. 

And now, I love the new trees.  They are seashore themed, and they aren't too Christmasy.  Pop one or two or three on a shelf for a fun little display in the family room, bath or kitchen.

One series is more tropical and one is more coastal.  Take your pick or do them both.  There's only 6 per club and they come every other month so they won't bog you down.  Each tree is perfectly painted and comes with a magical Kelly stitchguide.


The coastal trees are New England, lighthouses and lobster, beautiful northern blues.


The tropical trees are Lily Pulitzer, palm trees and flamingos.

We will have a thread list in November and will be putting together thread kits.  The club starts in March of next year but its always good to sign up early so you don't forget you love these gems.  Early joiners will receive a 50% discount on the 6th tree in their club(s)

All the details are on the website.  Coastal Tees are here.  Tropical Trees are here.

And if you are curious about the original club that started it all. Here it is

It's still available and if  you start now,  you could have lots of them done before you get your first seashore tree.  Just a thought.

Personality Plus

These owls are just the cutest!  Three Stwooges by Love You More is our current mystery class.  Today we focused on giving them personality.  Each one is a bit different but they are all super cute.


The hats are stitched differently with a fun assortment of black threads and beads.


The hat on the left is a series of layered crescents!  Long stitches rejoice!  Yes, it eats thread but there is no counting and it stitches up quick and fun.


The middle owl has big bold eyes featuring buttonholed rings.  His eyes are great.  I feel like this little guy is really a movie star hiding from the paparazzi!


The third owl is a little rough around the edges.  He's the big guy.  His feathers are a little matted thanks to needle felting burmilana!  The beaded rope edging along the brim of his hat is fun touch.

Next lesson will focus on the rest of their costumes.  That's a month away.  If you would like to join the fun, give us a call or sign up here.

The owls weren't the only ones with personality today.  We had a special guest, Abby!  She is a doll.


She's my new BFF.  I think we may have tired her out.


Nitey, night.

P.S.  For those of you who signed up later in the program, we received a few canvases at market last weekend but there are many more on order.  Hopefully they will arrive soon.
