We love our dogs here, and we love to make dog needlepoint kits for our customers, but every once in a while, we get some images that you have to see to believe.
Here are two amazing works recently finished by Dorothy in New York (she stitched Spud) and Linda in California (who stitched Parker).
Needlepointing a photo of your dog can be a challenge, but if you have the patience, it is worth it!
Nice stitching Dorothy and Linda and thanks for sharing!!!

We are celebrating the season with three new fantastic needlepoint Christmas stocking designs!
Not too much for me to say in this post, other than a warm thanks to Tracy for her hard work creating them.
Here are links to the three needlepoint kits: Avesta Needlepoint Stocking, Christmas Treats Stocking, and the Holiday Magic Stocking.
Each design is made to order and will be personalized before it is made. The colors can be changed and if you’d prefer a larger size, that is possible, too!

I know it is no longer Friday, but these images were taken then, and I’m just trying to keep up with the holiday orders.
I’m excited we sold our first Marilyn Monroe needlepoint canvas from New York Needleworks. It came out very well!

Of course I had to share an image of our custom needlepoint belt canvases, every week brings new challenges and creative new concepts that will end up on a lucky person’s waist.

And last but certainly not least, we have a spread of custom dog needlepoint canvases from photos and one from artist Fowler Ruffin. Holiday season is here, and keep in mind you have until Dec. 10th to guarantee arrival before Christmas without any domestic shipping surcharge. (Dec. 17th is the hard cutoff).

I love to design the custom needlepoint belt canvases, but they look so much better when they have been finished!
Big thanks to Jenny in Connecticut for sharing her fabulous stitching, and her input in creating this design.
Also, I want to mention one of our recommended needlepoint belt finishers, Kathy at Leatherprize who took Jenny’s work and put it onto the belt.
If you’ve got an idea for a needlepoint belt canvas, please contact us, we’d love to help!

Cute dogs and a newborn are some of our favorite needlepoint kits from this week.
Cute dogs and a newborn! Super fun needlepoint canvases!

Lovely DMC colors on our workshop table, I had to take a picture.
We’ve blogged about needlepointing dog collars in the past, but have finally created a needlepoint dog collar section in our shop!
I’m putting the new needlepoint designs in this post, as they are different from any I’ve seen and pretty cool if you ask me.
All these designs can be personalized and your dogs name and your phone number added to the canvas so you can stitch it in. This gets rid of having to listen the the metal tags jingle on your dogs collar!
Also, if you want to take a belt design and make it into a collar, just let us know, we’d be happy to help.
You’ll see a project for our dog that will be finished soon and I’m sure I’ll be post pictures of the finished collar so you get an idea of how good they look.

Here are four needlepoint belt canvases that we made last week!
The one with the monograms and years represent the whole family on a belt, I kind of like that idea. I may have to design a version for the website…
The others are a custom needlepoint life treasures belt, a colorado belt, and a single monogram belt.

We had a busy week, and made some great custom needlepoint kits!
It is hard not to love the super heroes in the first photo, this dog on the right just happened to have his bandana flapping in the wind…
The dog needlepoint canvases were just too cute this week, too! (second photo)
Alas, some more custom belts, they are so much fun to design, but I think this week’s we really had some fantastic ones. I love the decathlon idea for a track needlepoint belt, and the

Get into the holiday spirit and brighten up your mantle with this personalized reindeer stocking needlepoint canvas.
This design features a beautiful set of antlers and just a hint of red and green on the reindeer to bring the holidays into a modern home.
Stitch it all in continental stitch, or get creative and use some fun patterns to make the background pop.
As always, after your order is placed, a preview of your name as it will appear on your canvas will be emailed to you for your approval.
Don’t forget, time is short, so if you want it for this year, you’d better get started and have plenty of time to stitch!
