Ode to Nancy Poe

It is with great joy and sadness that today I hang a lovely new needlepoint piece on the wall in my bedroom. It is 'St. Basil's Cathedral' by Carol Lake stitch by a dear friend of mine Nancy Poe. Nancy died of brain cancer in 2010 and was a great friend and confidant of mine for years. Nancy only lived about 1 1/2 months after being diagnosed with her brain tumor. She met death with grace and bravery. She kindly gave away parts of her stash, partially stitched pieces and finished pieces to many of her friends before she died. Nancy asked me to pick out from her stash things that I wanted on one of the many visits that I had with her before her death. I was uncomfortable doing this. I finally told her that I did not want to be rude, but I did not have a lot of personal stitching time and that I really would prefer something finished by her. I got a grouping of cross stitch flowers and a lovely needlework piece. I do not know the designers or names of the these pieces. Nancy then had her daughter go up and get 'St. Basil's Cathedral' out of her stash and she gave it to me. It was not framed and as we all do, I put it up with the intent of getting framed. I decided this past week that I needed to honor her and get this piece on my wall. So Isa and I went to the framer and we picked out all of the pieces to make this piece sing. I just picked it up today at 1:00pm on August 17, 2012 and came straight home and hung it up on my wall. I cried at the framers, on the way home and when I hung it on the wall. Now I have a great feeling of peace and know that she is pleased that this piece is finally 'dressed' and has a home to be seen and enjoyed. If it has been awhile since you have hugged a friend or told them that you love them and appreciate them, stop what you are doing now and do it! Remember to always appreciate the bonds we make in this world. Hopefully they will carry over when we are gone and get to see them again. Hugs- Ebeth

Hearts and Flowers for Italy

In July I got an email through Facebook from Nicky of Nicky's Creations. She requested for me to design something small so that the Italian Designers can sell a folder of charts at the Formigine Market in September 2012. The procedes will go to the Earth Quake victims of the big Reggio Emilia earthquake. There will be French, Italian and American designers donating their talents to this project. Please contact Niky at nicoletta.farrauto@alice if you are interested in pre-ordering this folder. The price will include shipping. You need to contact her before the market in September to order your folder. Please help support this project!
Please pass the word around so that we can show our support for these victims. Hugs Ebeth Just spoke to Niky-You need to get with her this week. August 13, 2012 to order your folder.

Introducing English Adam and Eve

Yes, I know these guys are modest. I have had a few request to have a clothed Adam & Eve. So, here they are. This is a quick piece to stitch and rather quaint and there is no over one. I repeat no over one. I know you can pick yourself off the floor now. I am sending information to Hoffman Distrituting and Norden Craft this weekend. So, hopefully it will be out in the next week or so. I am also going to post pictures this weekend of the piece I created that will be sold in Italy to help the Earth Quake victims over there. I am going to see if I can get information on how you can get the packet of charts from the lovely and wonderful ladies in Italy. They asked several designers, some in America and others in Italy to design small pieces that can be put together in a folder and sold over in Italy to raise funds for the children that have suffered in the Earth Quakes. Have a great weekend. Check out In Stitches Shop Blog-Whoo Hoo Ebeth

Adam and Eve

Adam and Eve are ready to go out and meet the framer today. After some errands they will get measured and will be ready to pin mount today. Hopefully they will be photographed in the next couple of days. They are English by decent and are clothed. They asked to be presented in a modest form. So for those of you who like the naked versions, there will be another one coming out later in the year. Will post pictures later when they have been pinned and shot. Ta-ebeth

Stitching away

I am working on several pieces, but no pics at the moment. Just finishing up with an order to Norden Craft. Summer is really starting here in Georgia, but the school system insists on starting soon. It is really too hot for the kids, but you know governement, they always know best. Or sometimes they just do things just because....same with big business. I am off my rant. Well, I am off to pack up the order and to stitch. May drag the kids to the pool again today. We shall see. Winston is trying to find a cool place in the house to lay down and have a nap. Ta for now. ebeth
