Happy Thursday, everyone! I wanted to share a few quick pictures of my finished Kate Dickerson Herend Bunny stitched in Christmas colors!
I stitched this a while ago, and it got lost in the shuffle at work before I sent it off to be finished. (You may remember my previous blog post here!) But, the Herend Bunny is finally done and looks cute as can be! It’s finished as a stuffed stand up, with red and white cording along the edge. The fabric on the back is dark green, to match the darkest color in the rabbit. The finisher added a pretty gold fabric behind the background of the canvas, so that you see a pretty shimmer behind the open background, with was stitched in an open Alicia’s Lace stitch. This was such a fun and easy stitch!
The best part is that this design could certainly be displayed throughout the year. It’s perfect for both Easter and Christmas. Don’t you all think?
Kate has several designs resembling Herend Figurines. Here are some of my favorites:
Happy Monday everyone! Today on the blog, I’m sharing my favorite florals for spring! Nothing makes me happier to have fresh flowers in the house, and the best thing about these flowers is that they can be enjoyed year round!
Originally I had intended on sharing just my top ten, but I couldn’t narrow the list down… so here are my top thirteen!
Happy First Day of Spring, everyone!
We had gorgeous weather all week long in North Carolina- temperatures up to the low 80s! Unfortunately it’s not feeling much like spring anymore since it’s rained off and on all day! But I thought I would welcome in the new season by sharing some of my favorite photos from Needlepoint.Com’s upcoming Hot Air Balloon Club. These canvases are so cute and springy, they’re sure to brighten up this gloomy afternoon!
The total cost is $475 and includes all six canvases in the series, six stitch guides, all the threads you will need to complete the project, and a Needlepoint.Com logo bag to keep yourself organized. The first month’s canvas will ship out April 1st!
We will also be offering a free class for all North Carolina locals who sign up for the club at Needlepoint.Com on April 6th from 10-11:30. Call the shop at 919-828-5538 for more information or to sign up.
Be sure to check back in tomorrow for a list of my favorite floral canvases for spring!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!
Today on Stitch Style, I’m sharing my favorite St. Patrick’s Day canvases:
The Christmas tree was stitched in a woven stitch using Anchor Floss, and the red ornaments on it were beaded using Sundance Size 14 beads #11, as are the berries on the holly leaves. The “H” is Satin Stitched using blue entice. The package is Satin Stitched using purple Flair. The star at the top of the tree is a brad that I added at the end.
The peppermints were a lot of fun to work on! They are done in Brick Stitch Beading using Sundance Beads. If you’ve never tried Brick Beading before, here is a diagram! It’s really a fairly simple stitch: every time you come up in a canvas hole, lay the bead down vertically, so it lies between two canvas threads. Stagger the pattern just like you would do a brick stitch. It’s so quick to do, and gives such a wonderful effect for little work!
Associated Talents has many other holiday sayings and words in this series. I really love these two designs, too!
Just as I had anticipated, Saturday was just as busy as the day before!
Class started early at 9, and everyone was ready to go bright and early. We kicked off class by working on our backgrounds, and then were ready to tackle Or Nué before midday! (Not an easy stitch to master!) After a hard earned lunch break, we talked about couching Kreinik, playing with ribbons and many more fun stitches.
While my class was busy with their Hot Air Balloons, the class next door was stitching away on their Santa’s Workshops! It looks like they all had a fantastic time in class too!
After we finished up at the Renaissance, the Raleigh Trolley met our guests and shuttled them over to Hillsborough Street for a wine and cheese party at Needlepoint.Com. We had of trunk shows to shop- Charley Harper, and Kathy Schenkel as well as Kirk & Bradley and Burnett & Bradley.
Lots of fun was had by all!
