Idea: Needlepoint Tray

Every once in a while a customer asks us about creating a needlepoint tray. We’ve done acrylic ones like this one from Cooper Oaks:

Sudberry makes trays as well:

A customer came in the other day with the idea of making trays for when you are eating in front of the television. I hate trying to balance a plate on my lap so the idea of a tray appealed to me. I am jazzed about creating several trays with needlepoint that work in my family room. Or what about doing each family member’s monogram?

There is an acrylic covering over the needlepoint so the tray can easily be wiped down should you have any messy eaters in the family! (No judgements, Chris and Betsy Battle!)

I am always on the lookout for needlepoint ideas outside of pillows and ornaments. This sure fit the bill!

Happy stitching; happy dining in front of the tv,
Susan

Remember the post about The Point of It All’s Oops Sale? Here’s a link to refresh your memory: http://thepointofitallonline.com/pink-ribbon-campaign/

I am so pleased to report I just sent a check for $1000 to the Sullivan Breast Center at Sibley Hospital in DC! Well done, stitchers!

Also in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I am posting our new Susan Battle Needlepoint “Courage” ornament. I had already designed a pillow but now I have the canvas sized down to an ornament for the Christmas tree or a bulletin board.

This loyal Point of It All customer is ready for Fall! Check out all the pillows that just arrived for her. In taking the photos, we tried to show all the beautiful trims and fabric.
