Hello Everybody!

Do you want to stitch along with me?  I LOVE this canvas and I thought maybe you would too.   

This is Melissa Shirley's Blue Birdhouse.  The house is blue with shadows of leafy vines in lighter blue and the bird is white with tiny yellow flowers.  The flowers are white with some yellow and bright green accents and a light blue sky finishes this happy piece.  The painted area measures 10" square...not too big but not ornament sized either! There's something about the blues and yellows that just call out to me saying "Stitch me, stitch me!"
The best part?  This canvas has a Kathy Fenchel stitch guide written for 18 ct. canvas!  You won't be stuck wondering which stitch to put where!  She also suggested threads for it and I'll kit them up.  If you'd prefer a 13 ct. canvas, I can order that and will suggest changes in your threads to fit that canvas size. 
During the stitching, we'll have a group exchange of ideas, mileposts reached in our stitching, and fun!  You'll get to communicate with other needlepointers doing the same project via Facebook.   I've chosen Facebook for this because it's so easy to share pictures from your Smartphone, I-pad or digital camera.  If you're not a Facebook user, it's exceptionally easy to join.  If there are many people joining that are in or near Grand Blanc, we'll consider a monthly stitch-in at the shop in addition to the Facebook group. 
If you're interested, please call or email me so I can get your canvas, stitch guide and threads ordered.  I'm shooting for a starting date in July so that Melissa will have time to get our canvases to us.  I hope you like this canvas as much as I do!  Oh -  I guess cost might be important to you!   The canvas and stitch guide together is $200.   The threads will be approximately $85-$100.   Sound like fun?  Give me a call or drop me an email!  I'd love to stitch this canvas and I need YOU to be the incentive to get me going!

DEADLINE FOR LANDSCAPE CLUB SIGN UP is here.  Remember, the Landscape Club starts late May to June if you order by April 18 (now extended to 4/21/15).  Many of you have signed up but I don't want YOU to miss out!  These canvases all portray pretty landscapes and each one is 5 x 5".  The price for each canvas is $59.75 but if you choose at least six, that will lower to $52 each.  Choose all 12 (at $52 each) and I'll get you a FREE landscape canvas.  Every month you'll receive one of the landscapes that YOU chose with the designer's stitch guide.    See the details in our newsletter at[UNIQID]   These are all great to use your stash threads on.  Of course I'm always happy to kit anything you want me to!
