Fab Finishing!

Look what just came back from Laura and Carolyn, super-star finishers! This little mitten is from the Elizabeth Turner Collection. L& C added the name in beads across the top, along with a lovely beaded trim. A perfect memento for your sweet baby’s first Christmas.

Personal disclosure: I am not expecting a baby! Every time I showcase anything baby related, customers ask if I am pregnant. I am not but I will keep loyal On Point readers up to date when there is news, I promise!

Happy stitching,
Susan

PS Here is a picture of the back…Laura & Carolyn added individual little beads in tiny clusters.

UPDATE: A Tribute to Silvia and Woodlawn Exhibition

Silvia Termes, a dear friend and loyal Point of It All customer, recently passed away unexpectedly. Silvia, who was quite a character, liked to be called The Termite, a play on her Cuban last name. Silvia was a truly exceptional stitcher…these pictures hardly do justice to her exquisite work. Decorative stitches, extra embellishments, beads galore…she was so, so talented. I really miss Silvia as does everyone at The Point of It All. Enjoy pouring over these three pieces, finished posthumously… we all can learn so much from The Termite.

Happy stitching,
Susan

UPDATE! UPDATE!!

Silvia’s work received several awards at the Woodlawn Plantation Needlework Show! Details about the show are available here. The show is on view through the 31st. It’s well worth the drive…it’s so exciting to see what other stitchers are doing!

Fab Finishing: ‘Tis the Season

We are in full Christmas mode! Get in the holiday spirit by bringing out all your Christmas needlepoint! We just stitched this darling Patchwork Santa from Julia’s Needleworks. Julia also makes a Mrs. Claus…

This would be a great piece for decorative stitches, too. We added real buttons for his coat, which are super cute.

Chris and I have decorated our house and I am so excited to see our stockings hanging. It’s always such a treat when I get them out. Ours are from Sandra Gilmore (see her canvases by clicking here) and Buster’s is a custom designed one.

Merry Christmas and happy stitching,

Susan

Stocking Toppers

Do you ever feel like you couldn’t possibly finish stitching your Christmas stocking even if you worked on it for the rest of your life??? Do you feel like it is the world’s largest stocking?? I’ve been there and done that.

Behold the stocking topper! All you stitch is cuff and the finishers make the rest out of velvet or moire. I dare say it might be genius!

I did this one for the Battle Family (hence the “B”). The canvas is from Associated Talents and they have a marvelous selection. Click here to see some of the choices.

Keep toppers in mind should you be in need of a stocking!

Happy stitching,

Susan
