Twisted rainbow...

We've finally finished sorting out a new batch of wool into hanks! When we receive it from our supplier it comes in big balls of colour and we have to individually separate and twist each one into hanks and then match each shade to the code and give each one a batch number! It takes time but eventually we end up with this beautiful twisted rainbow!

A little birdie...

A little birdie tells me that a new free project section has arrived on the website! Turn this cute Christmas design into a needlepoint ornament, you could even add beads or metallic wool to give it some added sparkle! I'm stitching a few with different background colours to hang on my tree.

These bird needlepoint cushions from Gracious Style are really sweet and could easily work in a more modern interior to add some character.

Perfect Plumo!

I'm always on the look out for intricately detailed scissors and these examples from Plumo are so unique- especially those on the left as they are hand-made. A very welcome addition to any needlepoint bag!

These hand embroidered linen cushions and bone inlayed furniture from Nikki Jones are just beautiful, each piece is hand-made making them unique items. I would love this chest of drawers to display my framed metallic needlepoint designs on!

Skeins Unfurled...

This 'Skeins Unfurled Hobo bag' from my favourite shop Anthropologie is so fun- perfect for housing a lovely needlepoint project.
