I must admit, this Post is inspired by Needlepoint's own Robin King.
I loved her post with the decorating ideas so much, that I thought I'd share a bit of my own! Often, when I travel to teach, folks ask, "What do you do with your
needlepoint?" Most years, during the Autumnal holidays, my pieces are out traveling with
Trunk Shows, (Designer's models lead a very Lofty life!) So, last year, I decided to quick
stitch up a few new pieces from my Stash...just to have some of my own handi-work in the displays! It also helped diminish the Stash just a bit. You know, if we all made the goal of stitching 1 piece a month from the stash...? Oh who am I kidding? Whenever the stash goes down, I just think I've earned the right to ad a few more pieces! :~)
Anyway, Here are some pics of a few of the displays popping up around here:
This is the Bar Height Counter looking over into Kitchen.
At right, the little mini Pumpkin from AT. That was a quickie...stitched in a night!
In Center is a Mindy Canvas...one of the stash pieces stitched in 2010! Just LOVE this Folk Art Piece!
At left is a little Felted Jack 'O that I made this year!
I LOVE Folk Art Halloween, and every year, I try to make a few new pieces for my displays...
Why limit myself to just Needlepoint?
This sweet little table is in my Entry Hall. For those Antiquers out there, it is a burl veneered kidney table with the sweetest little cabriole legs...very blonde in coloration...lovely piece!
The little fancy box is a Patty Paints Crow. Patty is the Queen of Halloween Folk Art and she is a good friend! This is another piece stitched from my stash in 2010.
My little daughter, Olivia, loves to craft with Mommy! We made the paper mache' pumpkins a few nights ago...she did all of the painting! Livi gets a little frustrated with the Mache' work...she makes the flour glue, gets started with the shaping, but then quickly frustrated, when, "It doesn't look like a pumpkin yet, Mommy!" I quick get one to pumpkin status so she can sponge paint, then take over on the mache' work of the other one! In the end, I think they look
perfectly Rustic and Autumnal!
This is Mister Scarecrow from Kelly Clark Needlepoint.
He is the first piece I ever did with Fancy Stitches!
Canvas & SG Avaiable through your LNS!
Pretty witch from Kelly Clark Needlepoint, stitched and SG written by Janet Perry.

And an Adorable little Witches Hat Punch Needle framed piece.
I went on a Punch Needle kick in '06...did 3 pieces, bought about 20 and haven't
done Punch Needle since!
I am waiting on 3 of my newer pieces to come back from Finisher...
When they are set up in their new displays, I'll post again!
So Friends, a little peek into my World!
Hope you have enjoyed. :~)
Until next time, Keep on Stitchin'!
