Signs of fall

Feeling quiltish with this needelpoint pumpkin from Heartstrings. HS2110
Kelly Clark's First Harvest club makes a beautiful Thanksgiving display. Call for pricing and more information.
The set consists of 5 character canvases and one backdrop.
You could just stitch the backdrop without the characters. This piece is beautiful on its own.
Mindy's use of color and design is always right-on! Mindy 8H
Another patchworky piece from Mindy. Love that crazy-quilt pumpkin! Mindy 8R
A festive fall frock from Melissa Shirley is sure to please the needlepointing fashionista. On 13 count, it would be a quick stitch, too! 797-S
Sara is stitching another one of these beautiful flower vases from Melissa Shirley. There are three canvases in the series, and she is writing stitch guides and stitching all three! Call to get your kits today.
We would love to hear from you! Give us a call or send us an e-mail any time.

The Point of it All Designs

Click on the pictures below to see the stitching detail. Anna has been working hard to finish this middle square. The stitch-in on Saturday night of the retreat was a great opportunity to make some progress.
The yellow background section is complete with a shimmery orange lattice.
The orange background on the far left is the last large area to be completed in this section.
Who wouldn't love such a bright canvas?!
Let us know if you would like to stitch this piece with us. It has been so much fun!

These women have made some REAL PROGRESS! woohoo!

Our stitching retreaters are the most wonderful students in the world! They had a great time learning new tips and tricks from Julia Snyder. If you will click on the pictures below they will become bigger, and you will be able to see even more stitching detail. Here is their progress thus far...
Annette is beading all of her letters. It is looking great!
Button finished stitching her cat, and she has moved on to the tree stump. You go girl!
Cindy will have a masterpiece when she is finished with this canvas! She has stitched sections all over this baby!
Claudia could have this piece finished today. She really made some good progress over the weekend!
Janet's piece is one of our favorites. She is quite the stitcher, and she even discovered a new thread to use and love! River Silks ribbons are Janet's new best friend - she even said it could replace floss!
Judith made everyone laugh at the sight of those funny lips! Hilarious!
Karen's witch is so elegant. She is using glow-in-the-dark Krienik on the background. We all went into the dark bathroom to check out the glowing canvas!
Lisa's star from Mindy is so much fun. Love the patchwork look!
Pam has some really cool open-stitch backgrounds working on this canvas.
Tisha is having a great time working her way around this large witch. Lookin' good Tisha!
Tracy's stitch guide includes all kinds of wonderfully creative stitches. This canvas would be a fun one to work on!
Vicki's witch is coming to life with those stitches. Her leaves are a favorite among the group. She used River Silks ribbons to create gorgeous flying leaves.
All of these wonderful canvases have professional stitch guides written by Julia Snyder. If you are interested in any of these canvases we would be more than happy to make a complete kit for you. Give us a call or send us an e-mail with any questions you may have!

Lunch time!

Wowee! Look at all of that beautiful food! Pumpkin roll takes center stage in this picture, but there was sooo much more goodness to be had!
Mealtime at PFOS is always more of an event rather than just another breakfast, lunch or dinner. Yay for good food!
Button, Judith and Karen load up their plates before it's all gone!
What a nice drink station. Those containers are so classy!
Sara, Pockette and part-time drink server, did a wonderful job of taking tea orders.
Vicki is working around the border of this big-butt witch from Tapestry Tent!
Judith chose the pumpkin with lips from Ewe and Eye and Friends. Funny!
Pam got the kit with the cute, big-eyed spider from Raymond Crawford.
Karen is stitching one of the fashionable witches from Melissa Shirley. Nice choice, Karen!

Cindy is one fearless stitcher. She is ready to tackle this large Shelly witch canvas!
