Happy New Year!

Well!  Here we are two months later!  I don't know where the time went but I know it was busy!  I always think things will slow down after the holidays but we go right into inventory which is no small task.  A big thank you goes to the crew here at House of Stitches; they go above and beyond the call of duty to get it done. Another big thank you goes to my husband who adds it all up.  Tedious!  We prefer to count stitches!  One of the hazards of inventory is seeing all of the great designs that we have somehow missed adding to our personal stash.  So, it's off one inventory and onto another one!

I want to share an impressive piece of needlework with you. Sharon, who is a member of the crew here at House of Stitches stitched the Nativity Story Tablerunner by Blackberry Lane Designs for her friend Michele who was visiting from Australia.  While Michele was in the US, they attended Christmas in Williamsburg where they were able to show the completed project to the designer, Marie Driskill.  The size of the project becomes apparent as Michele (left), Marie (center) and Sharon (right) hold up the completed tablerunner.  What a stunning accomplishment!  Well done, Sharon!  Rumor has it Sharon will be visiting the tablerunner in Australia later this year.

2013 is shaping up to be an exciting year.  More details and dates will be coming SOON!

Happy stitching,


  1. wow, what a gorgeous piece! Wonderful job Sharon!
