I have been working feverishly to add new fobs, counting/marking pins, laying tools and stitch markers to my shop.  Plus, I have just added a line of stitch pickers which I sell with a color coordinated needle threader!

Keep Stitching

I would like to thank all of you who have followed my stitching adventures.  I am honored that you take the time to read and sometimes comment.  

I have decided to suspend my blog posts for the time being.  I'm not very good at it anyway. :)

Keep Stitching!  I know I will.


Some of you have expressed an interest in my conversion of DMC to Splendor that I used on Virtue Outshines the Stars.  So here you go.  Please note that in the original there are three symbols that called for a blended needle.  Since I stitched mine on 40 count, I used only one strand.  Therefore I could only choose one color for those symbols.
