I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Monday Morning Post Holiday Delay!


Amazon Books

Just a quick note to let you all know that the birthday give-away announcement will be a leeeeetle delayed! I’m off to a slow start after a weekend of company and family obligations! (Holiday weekends always end up this way….)

This week, I’ve got some neat stuff to show you – some birthday presents (!) that are needlework related and Really Exciting (I’m excited, anyway!) and photos of the spring gardern corner on the towel, which I did finally finish on Easter Sunday afternoon, just before giving it to my sister as a gift!

By the way, don’t forget that the French Needle is giving a 10% discount to readers of Needle ‘n Thread through April. To find out how to get 10% off your order, read my original post on The French Needle! I bring it up because (guess what??!), I got a pretty cool birthday present from there. It’s nice when family members do actually read my website!

My needle and thread related work this week includes working on videos, studio organization, setting up a commissioned project that’s due in June, and setting up a sampler with my niece. Those are the things I must get done – I have a whole list of things I want to get done, too, but we’ll see! I’ll let you know how I progress!

I hope everyone had a terrific weekend! I’ll announce the give-away winner tomorrow, then, first thing. If you haven’t had a chance to sign up, the deadline’s extended to tomorrow morning at 5:00 am CST (Tuesday, April 14)!
