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.
Hey everyone! Happy Friday! Today I wanted to share the newest online technique class that I’ve written for Needlepoint.Com with you. It’s all about how to stitch flowers and foliage. We are always trying to bring you all new and exciting online classes. If you have something you want to see us do, leave a comment below!.
If you’ve been following along for a little while, you will know just how much I love Joanna of The Plum Stitchery’s designs. When we were considering what to series feature for our next club at Needlepoint.Com, I reached out to Joanna about the possibility of an exclusive. Needless to say, I’m so glad that I did! We were both so excited about the idea of collaborating on a project.
It’s pretty rare that I’m truly stitching for myself these days. I’m usually busy with stitch guides and projects for Needlepoint.Com. But, with Christmas deadlines looming, I was determined to get a piece in for myself done! It’s so nice to stitch without having to keep accountability of thread colors and quantities.
