Dallas Market is always one of my favorite events of the year. For the last three years, I’ve had the privilege of working with the Kirk & Bradley girls in their booth at the show.
If you’ve been reading along for a while, you all may remember a few years back when I was stitching this incredible Kirk and Bradley Nativity for Needlepoint.Com’s Raleigh Retreat.
Hi friends. I’m excited to share that I’ll be back in Raleigh, North Carolina to teach this Sledding Polar Bear as a class at Needlepoint.Com on Thursday October 3rd from 10-12. You’ll have the opportunity to meet Vernon Kirk, the artist behind Kirk and Bradley, who is visiting us from London and joining us for class!
If you’ve been reading along for a while you will know how much I love Tess’s line Pewter and Pine. Not only is Tess as sweet as she can be, she is such a talented designer. You may remember when I interviewed her earlier this year.
When I saw Abigail Cecile’s latest release of designs I knew I HAD to stitch this Scandinavian Santa. There’s just something about him! I think it’s partially the beautiful and vibrant colors he’s painted in. (That blue his bag of toys is painted in is one of my all time favorite colors). But also the sweet simplicity of the design itself. When the canvas came into the store I couldn’t put it down. I think I had the whole ornament finished in a day and a half.
I’ve been on pins and needles waiting for this darling geometric clutch to come back from the finisher, and I’m so excited it’s finally here! It’s going to be the perfect little clutch bag for dinners out this summer. After I stitched it, we decided to kit a limited number and turn it into an online class.
