Kelly came in last fall, shortly after the shop opened. Kelly is a true knitter but decided to try her hand at needlepointing. I'll always remember Kelly because she is the first person I showed how to needlepoint in my new shop. She choose a fun Maggie and Co piece of a sheep. I showed her how to get started and periodically she would come by for more thread and to show me her progress. We couched the swirls on the sheep for a nice effect. Kelly brought the piece in over the summer for finishing- and now its' back. Doesn't it look great!

My husband, Jim, decided last year to get his commercial bus driving license to help out with driving the activity buses to sporting events. Our son plays 3 different high school sports- football, wrestling and lacrosse. Carson's nickname is Gus, so the guys started calling Jim "Uncle Gus". This provided me with the perfect needlepoint opportunity for one of Carson's ornaments so I had an artist design an activity bus. I used water-n-ice to stitch the glass on the windows and they really look fantastic! I personalized the ornament by adding "Uncle Gus'" and ECHHS.
Hope you can keep this a secret- Christmas is still two months away!
