The Cyberstitchers EGA Group

I will be teaching an online class in January for the Cyberstitchers, "Solomon's Temple".  I am excited to be working with this talented group of stitchers.  The class kit will be supplied by Elegant Stitch. Lois is specially dying the fabric for this kit.

I also will be teaching a Delaware sampler class at the March, 2014 Delaware Sampler Symposium.  It looks to be a great conference.  Here is the preliminary information:

Hope you have a great week!  Remember to always take time to stitch....

Gold Color Slight Change/ Christmas Issue

Hi Everyone,

My  sampler ornament in the recent JCS 2013 Christmas Issue has two colors of satin stitch flowers.   Viewing the graph in the magazine, you cannot tell which is which.  It is easy enough to explain.

The left side of each flower is done in the GFS #207 (darker gold) which is Gorianna Florimell Silk in satin stitches.   The right side of each satin stitch flower is done in Needlepoint Inc. #842 (lighter gold).

The flowers at the very top are down in cross stitch with GFS #207.  Hope you enjoy this little sampler ornament.  We are looking forward to this Christmas with my son and his wife and our two new miniature schnauzer puppies, Carmela, and Schultzie.  (I didn't know at the time of this submission that we would lose our beloved 17- year old "Sammy". )

Just Cross Stitch Christmas Issue

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick note to let you know I have a sampler ornament in the Just Cross Stitch magazine.
If you go to  and then look under O Holy Night, you will see a picture in that section.  The picture is in the center with the yellow tassel.  There are some great ornaments this issue.

Have a great week!

Wedding on June 1, 2013 at Geneva Conference Center

Last week was my son's wedding.  What a beautiful bride and handsome groom! (If I say so myself.)  It was a cloudy threatening rain weekend, and then the sun came out just as the happy couple said their vows--outside near the beach.  What a wonderful celebration!  We had so much fun with friends and family.  Here is a picture of the happy couple:

I know several stitchers were disappointed when the magazine didn't complete the whole  "Solomon's Temple" reporduction sampler.  Please contact me directly if you are interested in the complete pattern at and I will try to help you.
