Make it Count

You know how much I love painted canvases, but do you know I also love counted thread? That's where I started.

It's true, I'm a junkie.  I love it all.  Don't even get me started on my love of beadwork.  Then you will know I have issues :-)

Have you seen the cover of the new Needlepointers Magazine?


I am totally in love with the cover design.  Mulberry & Lime by Jeanne Polzin.  You could probably guess, I love the colors that were used in the design but then I love playing with the colors too.  A friend was in the shop today and she wanted to do the design in Fall colors.  She did most of the work, but I added a little something.  It was a bright spot in a day filled with reprogramming the charge terminal and entering product in the computer. Woo Hoo!  Those are the glamorous jobs.

We have our little counted thread room in the shop and it is a spot for pure creativity.  Colored canvas from Zweigart on the walls plus fabulous samples from Nature's Palette.  Oh my, their canvases are yummy.


The colors are solid and even and there's soooo many.   Some are sparkly, some are solid. We can order whatever suits your whim.


Combine thes canvas with threads that contrast or blend and the magic begins.  Add beads and crystals and oh my!

I'm dreaming of working one of the new Threedles designs. This one is calling my name tonight. Cat's Eye.  You can see the full line of Threedles Designs on their website.  We have most of the designs in stock.  Their color combinations are stunning.  Feel free to tweak them and make them your own.



Whatever direction your stitching takes you in, have fun and make it colorful! That's what it's all about.
