We found our Marbles!

The one and only Kimberly was here this weekend teaching the first of her marble designs.  Like all things Kimberly it is colorful and fun.  There's a lot packed into a not so big design.  It's only 8" square so totally manageable.



 Just look at all this yumminess.  The colors are divine.  We used lots of beads and fun threads.


She demonstrated how to make nice fluffy Twisted Lady Daisy Stitches.  They are super cool.


As a special treat she brought a mini gallery show for us to see.  These are on their way to the Swalebrook Studio and Gallery in Tunkhannock, PA for a special exhibit and class next month.  It was so fun to have a little preview.    

If you missed class but would like a kit, we have canvases and supplies in stock.  You can order here or give us a call at 410.296.0405

Thanks for visiting.

Yes, More Birds

I posted a month or so ago about a series of zecca birds that are just too cool.  First they are zecca, second they are quirkly and third they are uber colorful.  What's not to love?  The birds are two to a canvas so you can finish just two as ornaments, all six as ornaments or hang them as a mobile or as a long wonderful string of birds.  No matter which you choose they are quick to stitch.

We documented Karen's stitches so there are guides for each of the pairs.  Here's the second pair!


Two Birds #2. 



Here are the birds hanging from a column.  Pretty cool!


Stay tuned for the final pair of birds.  Each one is happier than the next.  If you would like a flock or a pair, give us a call at 410.296.0405 or order Two Birds #2 here.

P.S.  In case you missed the first birds, here they are.

Skully

Wow, what a week.  We've all be on high alert thinking about our friends in Florida. 

Our wholesale tradeshow is this weekend in Dallas.  I've already posted sneak peeks on Instagram and facebook of two pieces that I selected for Mystery Classes and our Thanksgivng workshop. YAY!  Lots of fun stuff coming.

Today was lesson two of Boo! by David Galchutt.  The canvas is coming along.  I really like where we are going.  I'm behind in my stitching but that's okay, we'll get there.

Today was all about his face.  The goal was creating depth on the skeleton's face while using fun stitches and of course Glow in the Dark threads! 




He's looking pretty spooky!

I realized that I forgot to post the matching snap tray and scissor fob.  Both are available if you would like the matching "go-withs."  The snap tray even glows!



Next lesson is in two weeks.  It's not too late to join the fun.  Here's the link if you would like to order now or give us a call at 410.296.0405.  We have canvases in stock.
