Tweet! Tweet! Two fabulous three-dimensional birds just flew in from the finisher! They are from Labors of Love. I stitched the woodpecker all in Balger for a totally sparkly effect. Regina, who writes stitch guides for The Point of It All, did her chick a dee in velvet–it’s so soft and lovely.

Check out the Labors of Love website to see their whole collection of birds.

Happy stitching,

Pink Ribbon Campaign

Finished Susan Battle Needlepoint Breast Cancer Ribbon canvas

I designed this canvas in support of all the family and friends who have courageously fought breast cancer.

And here it is finished!2013-04-22 14.40.49 - Copy

The canvas is 6.5″ x 6″ from the widest points and is on 13 mesh. $44. Available exclusively at The Point of It All, both in the shop and online.

More details to come but we WILL be doing our Oops Sale in June. The Oops Sale works like this: stitchers donate canvases they won’t ever stitch; we price them at $10, $50, and $100; you come in and shop and all of the proceeds go to breast cancer research.

Happy stitching,
Susan

FAB FINISHING: This purse makes me happy!

I just received this purse from the finisher and before I could do a blog post, a customer from Austin came by the shop, fell in love with it, ordered the canvas, took a photo, and posted it to the Steph’s Stitching blog, which was then picked up by the Chilly Hollow blog! Then I received two emails this morning from stitchers who recognized that the picture was taken at The Point of It All and wanted details on the purse! So, what I am conveying with those run-on sentences, is that there is a NEEDLEPOINT FRENZY over this purse!

As well there should be…it is divine! The canvas, double sided and on 13 mesh, is the Adelaide style from Elizabeth Turner Collection. I’ve just looked at their website and it’s under construction so you can’t see the other canvases that come in this style alas. The one I did is called Moroccan Tile and comes in teal instead of purple. But I am obsessed with purple so I stitched over the teal. Cost is $276. We can add your monogram, too, if you want. I chose black patent leather but there are lots of leather colors available. I lined the purse in bright yellow to add even more zing when you open it!

Come by the shop and check out the purse in person. I have the Elizabeth Turner catalog for you to flip through, too!

Happy stitching,
Susan

It also comes in two other color ways:

Grace, one of the TPOIA girls, stitched this canvas and used a terrific herringbone fabric for the set in…it looks awesome!

Molly, another one of the TPOIA girls, just finished a darling little bunny.

Associated Talents and Labors of Love also make wonderful Easter canvases…have fun looking at their webpages!

Happy Easter; happy stitching,

All of us at The Point of It All are going bananas for Nancy’s darling eye glass case! The canvas, from Kirk & Hamilton, is long and skinny and folds up to make the double-sided eye glass case. We have several in-stock. Also, we will be hosting a Kirk & Hamilton trunk show in August.
