The first dog day of summer calls for a showcase of our new Mod Dog canvases! Check out the new Labrador, Golden Retriever, Corgi, and Jack Russell additions to my Susan Battle Needlepoint line.

The other Mod dogs (Bulldog, Doxy, Labrador, and Westie) can be seen by clicking here.

These canvases are easy and fun to stitch. They also lend themselves to trying new, decorative stitches.

Stay cool! Susan

Fab Finishing: picture frame

Susan Battle Needlepoint Picture Frame

I am super excited to report that last week’s blog post on needlepoint artist Ralph Wileman was read BY RALPH WILEMAN!!! He then picked up the phone and called me! I’m not joking when I say that I felt like I was talking with a celebrity. What a pleasant man; we had such an enjoyable conversation. As it turns out, his son lives very close to The Point of It All. He will let me know when he next comes up for a visit so we can arrange a sip and see of his amazing work. Isn’t that exciting?

This picture frame, from my Susan Battle Needlepoint line, just came back from the finisher. I think it looks lovely! You could always stitch it in a different color way if Lilly Pulitzer isn’t your taste. Disclaimer: photo of Betsy not included with the canvas.

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

Taking a Seat!

Susan Battle Needlepoint's Tea Cups child's rocking chair

I just picked up one of my Susan Battle Needlepoint canvases from the upholsterer…I am so pleased with the results! Take a look:

I’ve also designed a Tea Cups canvas and a Treasure Map canvas that fit this child’s rocking chair. Obviously I’ll be doing the pink tea cups one for my baby Betsy! She can’t sit up unassisted yet but it’s never too early to start stitching!

Of course I’ve also planned to stitch the leopard print child’s director’s chair from J. Child Designs for her…I am going to add “Miss Battle” inside the pink outline.

The Susan Battle Needlepoint designs are available through my website (click here) or you can always call the shop to order them and any of the wonderful J. Child designs.

Betsy will have her choice of prime seating! If I get really ambitious and neglect all of my work and family duties, I could stitch this full sized chair from Trubey Designs. It is magnificent. It’s the sort of the Statement Piece that you stitch and then design a room to go with your chair!
