let’s finish our look at the essential components of any stitcher’s workbasket.
Since we’ve already chatted about scissors and needles, let’s dive a little deeper into my workbasket and see what we can find.
Is your workbasket nice and tidy – or do you have the Scarlett O’Hara syndrome? You know…putting off until tomorrow what you really ought to be tending to today.
Seriously, when’s the last time you inventoried your workbasket? I mean, actually sat down and took stock of what you have stuffed in there – and what you’re missing? Well, there’s no time like the present to dive right in and start digging around to see what’s inside yours.
What exactly is a Threadventure? That’s a great question – and I’m ever so glad you asked! 🙂
Grab your favorite cuppa and I’ll tell you all about it.
back to stitching the sky. It’s the last design component I have to decide upon – and it’s what prompted me to share this tiny peek at how I go about choosing threads and stitches for my needlepoint projects with you.
Hello lovelies! I’m so happy to be back with you here today. I had a wee bit of a life hiccup these past three weeks…my sweet Mama had to have unexpected open heart surgery (5 bypasses – yikes!) and I’ve been on Mommy Duty. 😉

This year, I’m not making any New Year’s Resolutions. I’m D-O-N-E with that activity – and moving on to a much more rewarding one! Wanna’ join me? Great! Let’s get started…

I’m so happy that you’re here. Please bookmark this page on the new website so you can visit with me regularly.
Let’s take a quick tour around the website and I’ll share a little about what you can expect to see here.
I’ve been teaching other people to knit, crochet, embroider, and needlepoint for more than 25 years. Throughout those years, I’ve compiled a list of tips that will make you a better knitter, crocheter, or stitcher.
You may already know some of my tips. Hopefully, you’ll learn something that will improve your skills and make you a more confident needle artist. (Because that’s what you are, you know!)
Sound good? Terrific!
Let’s get started…
