Happy July 4th

Hello, hello!

It's me... Robin... your absent blogger. I'm back and boy, have I missed you!

Where has the time gone?

Well, for me, I've been here all the time; in front of the computer writing stitch guides and traveling to/teaching at wonderful Needlepoint stores across this country. Often when I'm under deadlines (translation the plane is leaving in ____ days) I tend to hunker down and forgo life's responsibilities including blogging.

Facebook has been my go-to platform for updates. But, seriously, absent for almost 2 years?!! I apologize.

So... I'm back.

The July 4th holiday is upon us. BBQ, picnics, family reunions, potato salad... fond memories!

I've also had the pleasure of writing several July 4th/Americana themed stitch guides.

Here's the stitch guide I am currently writing... It's called "God Bless America" by Cooper Oaks Design (artist, Melissa McLeod • MML 921).

This is for my next Canvas Enhancement class in September 2017... at North Shore Needleworks in the Chicago area. This will be my first time teaching there and I am looking forward to meeting everyone. I will be sure to bring you along with me on my journey.

As I've mentioned before, all of my stitch guides are available from me. Just email me your request and I will get back with you the details. You can reach me at

Well, that's all for now. Have a safe and enjoyable July 4th holiday. Hope you get to do some stitching. Here's a Stars chart for you. I'm a giver! 😊

Until the next time... HUGS, Robin
