A Day to be Thankful

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration. I have so much to be thankful for this year, most especially my Point of It All customers–thank you!

The Napoleonic bee napkin rings arrived just in time…don’t they look great?!

Special thanks to loyal On Point reader and POIA stitcher Bryson D. who gave me this tip for getting napkins wrinkle-free without ironing: After you wash them pull them gently but firmly from side to side & top to bottom so that they are smooth, with no wrinkles.  Then place on a clean counter top to dry.  If they are not drying quick enough feel free once they are fairly dry to turn over. (I love this no iron technique and it worked like a charm!)

Happy stitching,
Susan

Whimsy & Grace Trunk Show

Hello stitchers! We have a wonderful trunk show from Whimsy & Grace…specifically her Napoleonic Bee Collection. All canvases are 20% off. If you see and need (yes NEED) any Napoleonic Bee canvases on her website, I would be happy to order them for you.

The trunk show will be at POIA until Saturday, August 20th.

Happy stitching!
Susan

FYI I am stitching the bee napkin rings (not yet pictured on the W & G website) in the coral and butter colorway, using Claret Trio (stranded) and vintage gold balger #12 from Kreinik. I’m doing 12 napkin rings and yes, I *am* crazy. I can’t seat 12 people at my current dining room table but I bet I’ll have a bigger dining room at some point and I need to be prepared!
