Needlepoint for your life, your home, your zen


Blue Dogwood Designs

December and another year in the books.  I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family.  Lots of fun things planned in December with family and friends.  It is a favorite time of year.  

I am grateful to my friends for fun, laughter, advice and inspiration.  I am thankful for the family gatherings - the family is growing!

I think back on the year that is marked by needlepoint projects. They have the memories of the days stitched into them.  It is the zen of the doing that is so enjoyable...  and we get to keep all the thoughts and laughter stitched into the finished project.

Next year, there will be new things, new ideas, new techniques.
The 2016 monthly free stitchguide project is called "Gosh Darn!".  

Merry Christmas to all! 


Stitchers make the best friends.

December and the final step of adding the Swarovski crystals!  Thank you to Linda W for the stitching!  Thank you to all that have enjoyed this monthly project.
