James and I were lucky enough to be able to attend the Fort Bragg Major League Baseball Game on July 3rd! Although we didn’t originally plan on going, we were able to snag some extra tickets from will call at the last minute! Surprisingly, we had really awesome seats. We sat right there in the third row behind the first base, instead of up in the bleachers like we had anticipated!
The Marlins/ Braves Game was the first professional sports game ever played on an Active Duty Army Base. There was such a strong energy throughout the stadium, as the game was played, and many soldiers were recognized for their service and accomplishments. After all, there is nothing more American than baseball on the 4 July weekend! Although I’m not a huge sports fan, it was an amazing experience to be able to be able to share in a little bit of “history in the making!”
In honor of the event, I wanted to share my top 5 favorite baseball canvases with you all, today on the blog:
When I first saw this piece last January at Market, I immediately knew that it would be on my list of personal projects to stitch! Pepperberry Designs always has the cutest Christmas ornaments (have you seen Charlie’s ornament for this year?)- and this design certainly was no exception!
Here’s my mini stitch guide for the piece:
Neon Rays #N01
Petite Silk Lamé Braid #SP02
Petite Very Velvet #V631
Sundance Size #14 Beads #471
Crystal Braid Beading Thread
I stitched the background in Petite Silk Lamé Braid #SP02 and used the “Trellis Darning Pattern” (that can be found in the book Stitches to Go!)
The red of the “Ho” was stitched using Petite Very Velvet #V631, and a simple Basketweave Stitch.
Santa’s Belt was Satin Stitched using Neon Rays #N01.
I attached the Sundance Size #14 Beads #471 around the belt buckle in a Horizontal Cross Stitch pattern.
I attached the Sundance Size #14 Beads #471 for the ^3 in a Classic Tent Stitch Pattern.
If you’re interested in ordering this canvas, it can be found online here! Simply select “Pick your Favorites”, and comment in the box to have it kitted as seen on Stitch Style to include the threads I used!
Happy Sunday everyone! Yesterday was a truly crazy day for us at Needlepoint.Com. We launched our new Online Beading Class- Just Bead it! The class is full of fun techniques you can use to embellish your canvas, and also helps to explain when/where to use them.
We currently have a Trunk Show full of beads in stock from The Collection. I pulled lots of fun embellishments, including shaped beads, bells, crystals, brads and sequins that we don’t normally have in stock for the class. I know you all will have fun playing around with all these fun beads and embellishments.
In a similar style to our last technique class “Santa’s Beards” the class also includes a printed stitch guide, blank canvas, beading thread, needles, a Needlepoint.Com Logo Kit Bag and a subscription to log in to our online beading videos which can be accessed 24/7 for a full calendar year!
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to enhance your stitching! These kits are selling out quickly!
Other online classes include:
Santa’s Beard and Mustache
