The Youngest Needlepoint Designer Award Goes to Shauly

My seven year old son, Shauly, designed this canvas today.  He was deeply engrossed in artwork when I happened to notice.  “What are you drawing?” I curiously inquired.  “I’m making a needlepoint for you.  It’s called Fireworks.”   I complimented him and told him I’ll post it here. Now he wants to know if any customers buy his design, can he keep the money. I think so. Don’t you agree?

My Design is Featured in Needlepoint Now Magazine

I designed and stitched a decorative pillow for my daughter Leah.  It’s fluffy and feminine, and most of all, fun to stitch! I submitted an article about it to Needlepoint Now magazine, and it was published in the current issue. The stitches are simple, and the article explains how to stitch a name needlepoint on a blank canvas. Of course, you can have us do the designing work for you.  See some samples at our Names category.

Meanwhile, my daughter, whose birthday is today, is thrilled.  Not only does she have this fancy pillow to show off, her name is now published in a real life magazine.  Quite an accomplishment for a ten year old!

Beethoven’s Birthday

Ludwig van Beethoven

On December 17th the world celebrated Ludwig van Beethoven’s 245th birthday. Google created an interactive doodle for the home page, which had the famous classical composer’s name discussed all over the Internet. But did you know that we’ve had a beautiful needlepoint design featuring Beethoven‘s likeness? Surely had Lucy known about it she’d have stitched it by now for her good friend Schroeder.
