Back In My Studio

I am back to work after a fabulous visit to Stitch It Central in Ingersoll, Ontario. Thank you Maria and Rui Santos for making it a perfect weekend stitch along. A good time was had by all and the Stitch It Central shop is a treasure trove of everything cross stitch. In addition, you will find the most  wonderful quilting supplies, lots of classes to attend, and they offer expert framing services. Please be sure to visit them if you are in the area.

You will find Stitch It Central at 189 Thames St S, Ingersoll, ON N5C 2T5, Canada +1 519-303-1563.

Maria and Rui’s personal attention to every customer and the complete stock of everything a stitcher could ever want is incredible! You can have a peek at all they have to offer here: Stitch It Central

Thanks too to all the lovely stitchers that attended. Here we are:

A Good Time Was Had By All

As a treat for all my friends in Canada, I designed a special chart titled ‘Canadian Beauty’. Maria has a lot in stock so if you are in Canada (or elsewhere) you can now order directly from Stitch It Central.

    Dear Joan- I love your designs so much!! Just when I was feeling satisfied with my projects to do, your “Canadian Beauty” captured my eye!! She is your best beauty yet!! I love the vibrant reds and how graceful she looks. Plus, the animals are adorable. You are helping my x-stitch wish list become taller than me!!! LOL! If you did beauties like these of all 50 states, we would be in 7th heaven and everyone would want to live to be 300 years old!! LOL! I’ve been to Canada 3 times for laskik eye surgery and my family loved Canada! Thank you so much for this gorgeous design!! It will definitely add spice tolife!!!
