New Canvas

I  finally finished this new piece by Timothy Chapman.  It is called "Hippo Swimming", but I like to think this will be Fiona when she grows up.

TC-5, "Hippo Swimming", will be available in September  for the Dallas show.  If any shops would like to pre-order I can bring the canvases to the show.

Upcoming Bunny Class

                                                   #822   Garden Bunny Beanbag

Paulette Paquette, of Family Arts Needlework Shop, will soon be starting a class on our dimensional Garden Bunny.  The class is scheduled to begin in May, so there will be enough time to complete her for next Easter.

Another Finish!

We finally got this one finished!!! Stitched by Patty O'Malley and me, from a Tony Minieri stitch guide, with a few changes.  This canvas incorporated lots of techniques and was really fun.  The most difficult part was finding the "right" feather.

New Canvas - New Artist

                                                                    LH-1  Sitting Coyote

We are fortunate to obtain licensing for needlepoint from Leland Holiday, a Navajo artist living on the reservation in New Mexico.  His original art is featured at the Toh-Atin Gallery ( as well as other galleries in Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and New York.

This is only the first of Leland's wonderful animals - more to come!

A Finish!

                                                  KRR-3   Come Back to Center by Kelly Rae Roberts

Judy Wells stitched this in a class with Meredith Willett, and this is the result of their combined talent.  I know this was a difficult project, but they succeeded in really bringing this canvas to life.
