Halloween Needlepoint...and more

Greetings, all! Ellen ventured off to the Dallas Needlepoint show and brought us back some absolutely amazing canvases--if you're not a needlepointer now, you will soon be plotting how and where to start. I have suggestions! (And more suggestions next time as well):

These canvases are works of art. Just feast your eyes on the next seven pics, all painted by Leigh. How can you resist?  Look closely at the detail.  I'm picturing these all stitched, framed and hanging in my dining room.  Or finished as cushions and lined up on my boring sofa.  Not boring then!  We have all the beautiful fibers to enhance these designs.  Call the shop, order one of these, and ask one of our clever needlepoint shop ladies to pull the fibers for you, then slide it into a package and ship it directly to your eager hands.
This is my very favorite.
Two more Halloween canvases, beautifully rendered (by a different artist).

And of course, lots of Christmas canvases, in different styles and sizes. This little guy:

Something simply and sparkly:
Something more ornate--perhaps a stocking for a treasured grandchild. A family heirloom, passed lovingly from generation to generation.

More canvases and some new counted cross stitch next time! Wait 'til I show you what Ellen ordered for me!

Will we see you on Stitch Night? (October 21 5-8 p.m.)
