Are You Up For A Challenge?

The Needlepoint Success Challenge kicks off on March 25th!

Hello there, lovely – and happy Tuesday!

I hope you’re having a fantabulous week. I can’t tell you how great it is to be here with you!

Really – I mean that, from the bottom of my heart! Every day, I jot down three things I’m thankful for in my journal. (It helps start my day off on the right foot.????)

Did you know that you’re always on that list? Yep – wonderful Y-O-U!!!

It’s such an honor (and a privilege!) to be able to share my love of needlepoint with somebody who “gets” my obsession.

If you’re a “gung-ho” stitcher like me, I’ll bet you can relate to…

  • squealing with excitement when you find the perfect canvas to stitch for your best friend’s birthday.
  • being on a first-name basis with your mailman and the UPS guy – or the staff at your local needlework shop, if you’re lucky enough to have one nearby.
  • that sinking feeling when you realize the stitch you chose for the purple flower isn’t gonna work after all.
  • carefully frogging hours of stitching (sometimes muttering a few choice expletives that would make your mother cringe ????) – all so you can try again for the perfect outcome.
  • jumping for joy when you finish a project!

That feeling of elation that comes from creating a one-of-a-kind heirloom treasure is pretty powerful, isn’t it?!

And speaking of creating…
