Welcome to the world of threads, color and design. I primarily create geometric patterns. This is where my esthetics naturally go. This is the place to share ideas and inspire the joy of needlepoint.

Stitch-ins and pilot classes

We had our monthly stitch-in Saturday. We discussed everything from soup to nuts. Show and tell is always great.

I finally finished all but two stitches that I have to detail on Atlantis Rising. Making progress.

Liz Morrow has designed a new piece, Mad Miters, that she will be teaching as a cyberclass for the Cyber Chapter and we will be piloting it for her. I've read through the instructions...I do that sometimes, usually when all else fails. I'm ready to get canvas and threads out. Starting something new is always exciting. And this style of working bargello is new, unusual and looks like fun. http://www.cyberpointers.org/education.html

Being a good girl and working hard

I've kept my nose to the grindstone and have been working hard on putting together the instructions for Atlantis Rising.  Almost finished. At present she's over 60 pages.  That's a lot, but she's a complex piece.
Once finished Ishould have the time to figure out how to get a photo of her put up here.
I'm teaching my f2f pilot stitchers this Saturday.  I'm looking forward to that.
Happy stitching, Ro

To Russia with Love

Tatyana is a stitcher who lives in Russia.  She found my website and led her friend Olga to me.  I am becoming friends of the Russians. 

Here is one of their blogs.  http://lolenya.gallery.ru/watch?ph=S9K-dkh1B  Gorgeous work and her camera work is enviable.  I wish I could speak Russian so I could understand everything on her blog.

It doesn't matter where you live on the world, stitching is stitching.

Best, Ro

Well, my intentions of getting so much work done went up in air.....my dear husband brought home a summer cold and shared it with me.  Last Friday I could feel it starting to work on me and by Saturday I was a zombie.  When I sat down I was asleep in seconds, but when I stood up I had to sit down quickly or I would feint.  I gave up and just staid in a horizontal position.  Today is Tuesday and I'm able to sit without falling asleep.  But, my energy goes very fast.  So, it'll be a bit before I can get some more stuff up on here.  Sorry, Ro
