Traveling with Sunflower and Berries (ND 309)

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

Just a quick note. My bags are packed and I am on my way to teach Sunflower and Berries (ND 309) at In Stitches Atlanta. I'll take photos of the 2-day event, and blog about the happenings upon my return.

Jules (the cat) says, "See ya'll in Atlanta real soon." She is a jewel.

Until the next time... Hugs, Robin

Sugar Skulls by NeedleDeeva

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

When one door closes... another door opens. Same is true with needlepoint. Just finished one project... ready to begin the next.

NeedleDeeva has designed a fun collection of Sugar Skulls. It's cool that needlepoint is getting edgy; a great way to keep current, trendy, and youthful. Plus, these Sugar Skulls make this Halloween gal happy.

I will be stitching these guys and each will come with my stitch guide. I can see Glow-in-the-Dark threads, Beads, and Ribbons in my future... and yours, too.

I will also refer you to read Vicky De Angelis' blog, Mostly Needlepoint, when she was talking about the Dia de los Muertos holiday. Click here for the link. Very interesting.

Look at these fun needlepoint accessories to keep me company: Sugar Skulls magnets and Sugar Skulls Snap Tray. I want to thank my personal shoppers who attended the Destination Dallas Market. Thanks, Vicky and Missy... you are the best!

I will be stitching in style. Yes, this isn't our grandmother's needlepoint.

The Sunflower and Berries (ND 309) is now at the framer. I will pick it up next Saturday, and then I will post its glamour shot. I still have some other blogs to write about its journey, and will post them soon.

Hope everyone has a happy Easter and Passover.

Until the next time... hippity hop hugs to you.  Robin
