OK, so I did not get this weeks orders ready until Saturday and am posting on Monday, but Friday Favorites just sounds better!
Anyway, these are some of my favorite canvases we made last week!
Here are some links to the belts, but for the canvases, click on the first link and scroll through. Custom Needlepoint Belts – Life Treasurers – The Jolly Roger – Colorado – Nautical Flags – Fly Fishing

We are no longer only selling needlepoint kits, we can now also stitch it and make into a pillow.
These are two custom needlepoint pillows we made a few weeks back, and I love all three of them!
We’re working on an instructional video to help you explain in more detail how to design your own pillow, but the website is actually quite simple so click here and give it a try!

Just in time for the holidays, I’m attaching pictures of a custom needlepoint christmas stocking that we stitched for a customer a few weeks back. It was a big hit!
We used the Blue Snowman Needlepoint Stocking as the backdrop and replaced the snowman with their dog!
Also, before you leave this page, I want to thank all of our customers for keeping us very busy this year!
It has been a challenge to get all the orders finished in time, but we did it! And, on that note, we will be taking some family time this year and will be closed for the holidays for the next two weeks. (We will return emails and phone messages on 1/6/14)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

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!!!

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.

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.

Cute dogs and a newborn! Super fun needlepoint canvases!
Our painter has been busy lately, this project was commissioned from some vintage shell designs!

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.
