I am nothing without my wonderful friends, who help make my work possible.
I am nothing without Kathy Gordon, who with her enthusiasm, her brilliant stitching, and her intelligent and thoughtful suggestions, makes my designs look their best. Today I received a package from her that included 4 pieces, stitched and proofed.
I could not do what I love doing, and do it well without my friend, Kathy.
I am nothing without my stitching friends who come to spend time with me, who allow me to share with them what I have learned, and who ask for more.

I've always thought that needlepointing modern, artistic portraiture is not possible. It would have to be done with a painted canvas in the background and some forced stitches to fit into the various parts of the subject. No, that is not true, Orna. Here is proof. Now THAT is needlepoint at it's finest!!
Let me introduce you to Maria E Pineres.

This is what I did first thing this morning... I love the look of these. Jayne, it's on it's way to you!

Today is the beginning of the holiday weekend and I'm feeling accomplished!
- I sent out almost all of your orders, (thank you so much for your support and excitement about my new website!)
- Then this morning I finally went for my annual physical!! I hate going to see doctors which is why when I do without being prompted by being sick, I feel so good about myself!
- I've written two out of the 5 instruction guides that have been sitting to the left of my computer. I know they are inanimate objects, but I swear they were sitting there with a frown, wagging their fingers at me.
- My house is sparkling clean and I'm about to leave to see our grandkids and of course Shiri.
