More is More!

Yes, that is my general philosophy.  It really applies when dressing owls.  :-)

More beads, more patterns, more texture.  YAY!


Yesterday was the third lesson of the Holiday Owls, Stella and Max.  Lots of fun details are being added.  I love these guys.


We've added a hat and pom pom.


Check out this wing!  It really is a free for all of stitches.  Super fun and pretty quick.


And then!  This is the part I have had in my mind since the beginning.  I love the blue wing.  All of those beads and the ruffly feathers at his neck.  Oh my!  Those are super quick too. 

One more lesson to go and then on to something new.  If you would like to stitch your very own Stella and Max, here's the link, or simply give us a call at 410.296.0405 and we'll take it from there.

Let's go skating

We love a pretty finish.  Mika stitched the skater by lulu mypinkturtle following my guide and it is super cute!  Sometimes we don't have photos of finished stitch guide canvases until you share so this was a fun treat for us.



Thanks for sharing.

P.S.  If you would like your own skater, here's the link.

The results are in!

Our Embellishment Extravaganza was super fun!

Nine ladies joined me at the beehive to spend three days stitching and playing, each with a unique canvas.  These are just a few sneak peeks of various canvases.



Of course I love the interconnecting backgrounds, and the face!  Look at that face.





Zecca birds never disappoint.  Lots of opportunity for fun.





Check out all the patterns and textures on the camel.  Super fun.




Two ladies stitched Hello Quiet and each worked on different areas so we have lots of fun snippets from them.


The hair!


The face!





There's lots of black but the stitches are magical so that will make it go faster.

There are a million details on this canvas but my favorites are the life preserver


and the waves!

We are now taking reservations for our May class.  We would love to have you join us May 4-6.  There's lots of fun to be had. :-)  Read all the details on the website and give us a call to sign up.  We have a few spaces left but they are going fast!

Cats Cats and More Cats

It's been a long time coming, but here we are, lesson two of Santa Fe Felines!

Two more kitties have joined the tribe.  Lots of fun patterns and textures on these two.  Not to mention fun new beads!


This is a Mystery with a Twist project which means, it is a long term project.  I stitch guide sections at a time, kit it up and send it out to everyone in the club.  This is a Laurel Burch canvas, as you can see it is super colorful and filled with fun textures! 

You can join the fun at anytime, we will send you a canvas, the stitchguide to date along with all necessary threads etc to get you up to date.  From there you will be in the queue to receive future lessons as they are released!  YAY!

Here's the link if you would like to join us, or give us a call at 410.296.0405.








We are waiting for 2 threads to arrive which are due here asap.  At that point we will be packing and shipping like happy little elves.  Watch for shipping notifications next week.
