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!

Back from Market

I have just returned from the Needlework Market in sunny Long Beach, California…wow, so many beautiful canvases! I can’t wait for them to start arriving! I took pictures of some especially neat ones. The picture quality isn’t great because the convention center lighting was poor but here’s the idea.

These adorable Halloween “stand ups” are from Kirk & Hamilton. Very cute.

You can make your own gingerbread garland! Elizabeth Turner Collection envisioned that you would stitch the members of your family in gingerbread. Adorable finishing.

These canvases looked perfect for decorative stitches! I ordered a bunch of sweet saying plus several canvases of local sports teams…ie gold and maroon with Go Skins! for the Redskins…someone has to be a fan right?!

If it’s got animal print, it must be mine! This little tuffet from Trubey/Fleur de Paris is AWESOME!

There were many, many wonderful canvases…I get excited each time Dwayne, our super UPS man, comes to the shop!

Happy stitching,
Susan
