Boy do I like bling!

Bling for the holidays is twice as good as everyday bling, right?

I used to do the Christmas Sweater thing.  I had quite a collection.  Fortunately most of those are long gone and terrorizing some other family.

This year I am all about the blingy Christmas jewelry.  I loved making my halloween bracelets so now I can make Christmas bracelets.  You know I need several as the season is much longer.  :-)

All of these are in stock now.

Fancy Fringe is available in Christmas Sparkle (lighter green with red)

or Christmas Traditions (darker green and red)

Isle of Capri II is a new fun color way perfect for snow and cold.

In the slanted sparkle peyote kits we have Holiday Cheer.  This really is just regular peyote but because you work with different size beads it bubbles oh so fancy.

In the traditional peyote kits we have, Believe

Christmas Candy

 Merry Christmas


Peppermint Stick

Give us a call at 41.296.0405 if you would like us to send you a bracelet or two.  They make great stocking stuffers.

I know what I want to be doing Thanksgiving Day....

The Haunted House is Finished!

Today was a chilly day, perfect for finishing the Haunted House mystery.    There were lots of areas yet to be stitched but they were mostly quick stitches.  Sometimes all it takes is a few well placed stitches to make a detail pop.

The tops of the brick walls are a new laid filling stitch with a twist.  The lantern requires just a little embroidery to come to life.

The cat is peaking around the corner of the tree.

The owl in the tree watches over everything.

The pumpkin is the perfect shade of orange to give a little pop to the canvas.  And of course the gate is beaded. You were wondering where the beads were weren't you?

I'm pleased with the way the entire piece turned out.  The colors were a little dull for me but it fits the season, so what's a girl to do?

Of course my favorite areas are the beaded gate (my basket weave)
and the haunted house.  Love that just a few stitches in the right spots make it sing!

Next up is the Partridge Stocking.  Class #1 is two weeks from today.  See you there.

My life has been filled with many kitty muses through the years.  Jasper was one of them.  He was a sweet boy, big and round and loving.

He's been gone for years but he of course lives on in my heart.

And in the shop's bathroom.....

Here's my boy stitched and looking over us.  The canvas is available here if you would like to stitch your very own tabby cat.

I never had this exotic plan but I think he would have looked good with it.  Or maybe he would have pushed it to the floor.  One never knows.  :-)  Somedays he wanted more attention.

Here he is looking like the king of the roost.  Which of course he was.
