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

A Happy Christmas to All!

To all my Needle ‘n Thread Friends, I wish you and yours a Christmas full of joy and many blessings!

Merry Christmas!

I wanted to stitch you up a nice Christmas card this year, but all I managed was a bit of fun in Photoshop:

Merry Christmas!

May your Christmas be a peaceful one – and may you squeeze in some quiet time on the side for stitching! Just remember: don’t stitch and drink eggnog at the same time!

The Medallion Project will be my primary needlework focus over the next month. In addition to the Medallion, I’m stitching up a monogram and working out step-by-step instructions and some video tutorials on monogram embroidery, for an online class that will be announced in the new year. I’m also working on a miniature goldwork project that is…. well. Miniature. These projects will keep me good and occupied, especially during the 12 Days of Christmas give-away series that begins tomorrow. After January 6th, I should have plenty of stitching updates for you!

See you tomorrow, with the First Day of Christmas give-away, which includes some gorgeous kits and an instructional DVD.

Merry Christmas, my friends!

  6. Merry Christmas Mary!! This is my first one with you and I want you to know that you have brought me a lot of joy this year. I have two newsletters that I am signed up for; yours and C.O. Farmer (scriptures on Weds. and Sun.). It is these two that keep me going through the week. Thank you for the time and care you put into your beautiful site. I have learned so much.

    Your friend,


  7. Merry Christmas to all of you. What would we do without our Mary? Looking forward to learning more, seeing more projects and getting in as much stitching as possible. I have my projects set out for next year.

  8. And a Very Merry Christmas to you, Mary. It has been a great year on Neddle’n’thread and I am looking forward to the next year. Thank you very much for all you bring with this blog.

  9. A Happy Christmas to all who read Needle n Thread and most especially to Mary. Sorry, have been without internet for the last week hence the delayed greetings.

    I’m sure Mary has had a wonderful one with family & friends and pray the Christmas spirit lasts right through the New Year.
