Another canvas from the always fabulous (!) Susan Battle Needlepoint line…nothing like a little self-promotion, eh?! The large lattice canvas is on 13 mesh and measures 16″ by 16″. The price is $224. It’s available in The Point of It All’s web store: http://tpoia.storenvy.com/

It looks awesome in purple but you could change the colors to blues or greens or pinks to suit your decor. So stylish.

I’m off to the needlework market on Friday…stay tuned for blog posts live from the convention floor!

Happy stitching, Susan

Stunning Peacock

I am working with an artist to develop my own line of canvases, Susan Battle Needlepoint. Terribly clever name, don’t you think?! I’ll highlight these canvases in future posts. First up is a stunning peacock. This regal bird is stitch-painted on 18 mesh. The price is $250 and the painted size is 16″ x 16″. Right now these designs are available exclusively through The Point of It All. Email me if you would like to order one. I am stitching this canvas in Splendor silk…I will take a picture once he’s stitched and “pillowed”!

Happy stitching,

Prioritizing Your Stash

So many canvases, so little time! Here’s what’s on my Active Roster:

St. Albans belt (designed by me)
Aqua and brown coral bucket bag (designed by Clara Wells)
Fantastic paisley (designed by DJ Designs)
Geometric frame (designed by Jenny Henry)
Asian-inspired geometric (designed by Julie Pischke)
Go O’s (for the Baltimore Orioles) (designed by And More)

These are just the canvases that are actually in my living room right now! There is a whole separate stash of Potential Projects…these players could be subbed into the game AT ANY MOMENT!

So I am focusing on prioritizing. The active roster has a nice mix of 13 mesh and 18 mesh; big and small; intricate designs and simple backgrounds; decorative stitches and plain basketweave. I am ready for any scenario and stitching whim! I recommend you always have multiple projects going. Then you have a choice as to what to stitch when. I never, ever limit myself to one canvas. (Though I think my husband could do with fewer Point of It All bags in the living room!)

I also organize every canvas (and accompanying fibers) in a clear, zippered bag. I love these bags in particular.

Embrace needlepoint A.D.D.!

Happy stitching,
