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.

Still alive

Any rumors of my demise are not true....apparently my blog was upset with me and didn't want to let me post anything.  We've made up. 

The holidays were wonderful.  Time spent with my daughter June was wonderful.  And, Elizabeth was able to join us on the 23rd as well as my step-son, Justin and his wife.

If you are a member of ANG you've received the seminar booklet....photos of both new pieces Atlantis Rising and Illusion are great.

I'm getting set for the ANG cyber class, Harmony, which starts on March 1.  I had to get 46 kits together, along with 16 sets of instructions only.  And, had two choices for color.....sure hope I got it all correct....won't know for sure until class starts.

In the meantime I'm working on the instructions for Illusion and the corrections for Atlantis Rising.  I have to squeeze in a quick trip to Texas to teach the Memories group...two want the Rose Garden, five want  Tide Pools and 15 want Solar Flare.
The pre-work has gone out and I will be getting the rest of the supplies ready for the mid April class.

Best news of all...on a personal level......my granddaughter, Nicole is pregnant, due the first of July.......I was so excited to hear that. And, she and her husband made a special trip to Vegas to have some fun and tell us personally.. I've been waiting a long time to become a great...great...grandmother.  Then she upped the level of excitement when she called last week to tell me it's a GIRL!!!!!!  That's the fourth generation of girls.  Me, daughter Cathy, her daughter Nicole and now Nicole's daughter?????
They don't want to pick the name until she's born.  Now, I just have to squeeze in some knitting time. 

I have five Russian ladies who have been ordering my designs like crazy......I get one order out and get two more orders.  I have an idea for a "Russian" piece and sure hope I can get to it sometime this year.  I will have seminar kits for both classes and then another cyberclass, Venetian Delight.  The cyber chapter is sponsoring it.  If you want to do it but, weren't sure you could stitch it on your own, now would be a good time....check with them for dates etc.

Time to get back to work.  Take care everyone,  Ro
