Good morning, and happy Wednesday! I hope you’ve been able to enjoy some time with your needle and thread this week so far – and that, wherever you are, your stitches are just right, and you are safe and sound and comfy!
It’s been a wild several weeks on this side of the Needle ‘n Thread screen! November is flying by too quickly. I’m exceedingly thankful that Thanksgiving falls a bit later this year!
Each day gets me a little closer to finishing the snowflake collection we talked about Monday and even preparing some more Festive Fall and Holly & Evergreen ready-to-stitch towels (and a new line of ready-to-stitch Folky Flake towels, like the examples I talked about here). All of that should be ready for you by the end of the month, and perhaps sooner, if things go well.
Today, I’m sharing a super enjoyable video with you, though I expect it will go around online with all haste and you might run into it elsewhere. Remember this book:
I reviewed The Embroidered Art of Chloe Giordano here. It is a charming book! If you love needle painting and especially animals (but other things as well), you will find the book delightful and rather freeing.
Chloe stitched a book cover lately for the book Miss Austen by Gill Hornby and she has shared a 30 minute vide on her process. It is definitely worth watching!
I’ve embedded it below, and you can view it here on Needle ‘n Thread, if you’re reading from my newsletter. You can also find find it here on YouTube.
Since it’s halfway through the week, you deserve a break – relax, pour yourself a cuppa, and enjoy this video.
And yes, do marvel at her pristine work space!
If you are interested in Chloe’s beautiful book on embroidery, you can find it listed at the top of my Amazon Recommendations page, under the Recommendations list, where you’ll find a whole collection of wonderful embroidery books that I have reviewed on Needle ‘n Thread. Put this one on your Christmas wish list if you don’t have it yet!
Coming Up on Needle ‘n Thread
I still have a new Stitch Fun tutorial to share with you. I’ve just had a rotten time getting pictures edited. Friday? That’s my plan! (Wish me luck.)
Oh My Word! This year’s A Stitcher’s Christmas series is going to be absolutely fabulous! Starting right after Thanksgiving and leading up to Christmas, I’m running my yearly series of gorgeous give-aways on Needle ‘n Thread. Keep your eyes peeled! You’ll want in on these – and hey, you’re more likely to win one of my give-aways than you are the lottery, so why not join in the fun? There are some wonderful prizes, thanks to many very generous small needlework businesses!
Have a wonderful rest-of-the-week, and may you find plenty of time to bond with your favorite stitching project!
