Friday Favorites – Art Needlepoint – Stockings – Stamps

Here are some of the great needlepoint projects we made this week.

I’m really excited about one of our needlepoint belt designs!  You may be able to guess which one, but it is overshadowed by the large art needlepoint designs we did this week.  If you look closely at the needlepoint belt canvas, you’ll see we did a whole landscape scene.  It came out really well!

Finally, I’m adding some feedback we got from our customers last week!  We get a lot of great feedback that makes me smile but our marketing director said I should be sharing it, too.

The Needlepoint Stocking of His Dreams

My wife was inspired last year by the “war and peace” stocking Peggy stitched for her granddaughter last year.  After seeing it, she decided she wanted to make our nephew his own needlepoint stocking.

Not being a very experience needlepointer, I’ve been impressed.  At Peggy’s suggestion, we bought the NeedlePoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen, and really had a good time with it.  Rather than doing all tent stitches, she found it a lot more enjoyable to follow Peggy’s lead, and do most of the sections in different stitches.

As time went on, she got better an better, and now with another addition to the family this year, I’ll have to start thinking of a new needlepoint design to make on NeedlePaint!

Christmas Needlepoint Order Deadlines

This year it seems like people are shopping for Christmas needlepoint gifts earlier than ever!

We’ve been preparing for the final rush, but if you’re still looking, have no fear.

All orders placed by December 19th will arrive before Christmas, but for those of you who order after December 12th, we’ll request that you please email us to confirm if express shipping is needed.

If you’ve got quick hands, there is still time to make a Quick Stitch Needlepoint Ornament!

Quick Stitch Belle Noel Needlepoint Christmas Stocking Stitch Guide

Are you running out of time to finish multiple stockings this year?

If so, our Belle Noel Needlepoint Christmas Stocking collection may be just what you need.

Not only do they look great, but Peggy finished this stocking in just two weeks!

Long stiches cover the canvas quicker and give a 3-D texture to your stocking. The wool thread also adds to the textured appearance.

She completed the stocking in a flash using the Continental stitch for the name (white and green), the green and red bands, and the camel (red) and the long stiches shown below:

There are four christmas stockings in the collection, so everyone can get their own version.  Each design is available as a personalized needlepoint kit.

Personalized Snowman Stocking Needlepoint Kit

We updated our website over the summer to include a shop for needlepoint stocking designs.

What you can’t always tell from a picture, is how great the names come out on the canvas.

Our Personalized Snowman Stocking Needlepoint Kit

This snowman needlepoint stocking design has been quite popular and leaves a lot of ideas to the stitcher to play with the snowflakes.  I can imagine using metallics and fun stitches to make them really pop!

This needlepoint kit was made on 14 mesh canvas and is 19 x 12.35 inches on a 21 x 15.5 inch canvas.
