 SUCH CRAZY WEATHER!  TYPICAL KENTUCKY! One day it is springlike, next day it is raining and the  next day it is snowing or sleet! We are in the 30s, 50s, back to 20, and so it goes! We will just roll with the flow and get lost in our stitching adventures. ONLINE CLASSES     I understand that canvases for SeaShells on Shore have been mailed out to all who have paid.  Also class fees have been invoiced.  First class is scheduled for mid-February. Very excited to start!  Next is the class on the Ornaments Galore by JP Needlepoint. So many possibiliti ..read more

 We are all saddened by the loss of another needlepoint legend - Brenda Hart.  Rest in Peace Brenda knowing that your knowledge and work lives on through all the beautiful pieces that have been made under your guidance.  You will be missed. WELCOME A NEW YEAR! I feel most of us are not too sad to tell 2022 goodby and are looking forward to 2023!  One thing for sure, we can all say we made it through another challenging year!  We always celebrate royally and may even manage to stay awake until 10:00pm or so.  You know as you get older you tend to get a little more ..read more

CHRISTMAS IN FLORIDA! Well, this is going to be different for us.  First of all we are having the worse few days of below 0 weather of the season at home  Those of you who follow me know what a dramatic year we had last year and I don't know if I'm up to a repeat this year.  Fortunately (I think) our house sitter can deal with it (LOL) !  We'll still worry and be concerned though. It made it through the first night fine and we are praying we get the same results from our friend today.   I guess that's what you do with an old house huh? But it is managing to hold i ..read more

 COMPUTERS!   Can't live with them and can't live without them now days.  I have had a terrible time trying to recover my Blog so I hope that I have finally conquered that step. ONLINE CLASSES This week we shared another Session in our online classes. Three Wisemen  so near the end that I can't help but get a tiny bit sad. We are working on the last king's cloak. Besties - the Ostrich  is moving quickly also.  This month we were a little light because we mainly just did beading.  Many do not care for beading.  Somehow Besties best friend - Froggie - just ..read more

HOLIDAYS ARE UPON US! Thanksgiving Day has come and gone here in the States.  Not everyone waits for the passing of Thanksgiving before beginning to celebrate the Christmas and Chanukah/Hanukkah observances.  Some retailers are rather ridiculous in when they begin putting out their holiday decorations.  It has gotten so bad that it seems some holidays are skimmed over and almost missed!  I find this very sad. ONLINE CLASSES We have almost completed our thread selections for our current class that is still open for registration.  We audition stitches with the threads as ..read more

 BRRRRRRRrrrrrrr! Well I'm afraid that winter is officially here.  We are, in fact, considering building our first fire.  It is not just the chill - for me it is as much about the dampness caused from the rain.  I am not complaining, however, as we desperately needed the rain for many reasons.  One reason is that it is very dry around here.  More importantly, however, are the forest wildfires that are surrounding the area and burning hundreds of acres.  We have a burn ban in effect but apparently someone dropped a lighted cigarette and had endangered several ..read more

 NOVEMBER!  Really? While struggling through the year it seems unrealistic that it really is almost over!  I have said many, many times - while sitting in ER, hospital rooms, waiting rooms, doctor offices, labs, etc. - thank goodness for my needlepoint.  I know most of you can certainly relate to that.  I have a nervous energy (hump, didn't know I had any energy to speak of) but I cannot sit still - unless I have some kind of needle in my hands.  Doesn't have to be needlepoint.  I love to have my knitting and crochet with me as well.  These are all such ..read more

 AND THE BEAT GOES ON . . . As I discussed last week we posted the next session of lessons for our three current classes, Three Wisemen, Chinese Lanterns and the new Besties.   Three Wisemen seems to have presented an interesting challenge for some.  This session dealt with stretching Flair again.  We engaged in a more in depth discussion  about the various sections and suggested approaches. One of the beauties of this type class is that you may ask questions and we may share a kazzlion WIP pictures that may assist in the understanding of a particular technique.&n ..read more
