You Meet the Nicest People

The needleart world is filled with some of the nicest people and you meet them in the coolest ways.

I just went to log into blogger to post and as I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing I simply typed my name in a block and hit return. Well, who knew, I am listed on other people's blogs. That's a huge compliment.

I start looking at the various blogs and get completely sucked into one and who knew it belongs to the President of our local EGA chapter. I met Susan about a year ago at a class taught by Betty Chen Louis. Susan is one of those people you just want to be around. She has a great energy that you just want to be around.

Her blog is so much more animated than mine. It's lots of fun to read. She's an avid Japanese Embroiderer who will graduate in October 2007. That means she will be able to teach!!!! I don't know if she has any plans to or not, but I certainly hope so. Japanese Embroidery is a beautiful art and very disciplined. If I were ever to try to learn it, Susan would be the one I'd want to teach me. Her enthusiasm for life and stitching shines through everything she does. Take a moment and check out her blog. I think you will enjoy it. I know I do!

Happy Holidays!


It's a week until Christmas and the house should be decorated, the cookies should be baked and just as importantly I should be ready for the tradeshow in San Diego. I'm not ready for any of these things. Oh well, we'll get there.

There will be lots of new designs introduced at market. I have a new series of Holiday Ladies. They are very stylish. This is Merry Christmas. We also have Sugar Plum (dressed in ribbon candy), Candy Cane (in of course the candy cane ensemble) and Miss L. Toe (she's the holiday lounge singer).

I also decided to develop a line of canvases to portray all the things kids are into these days, soccer, ballet, karate, baseball, skateboarding, the list goes on and on. I think there are well over a dozen different kids. Boys, girls, caucasian, african american, 18ct, 13ct. We've got them all! It was interesting as we started designing them that with each one there had to be another. There are so many activities that kids are involved in these days. I'm excited to see them stitched and brought to life. They are all very colorful and have cool backgrounds that are perfect for stitches!

This is just a quick sneak peak at what's coming. More news to follow.

To all my stitching and beading friends may I wish you a Happy Holiday and a New Year filled with all thing bright and shiny!
