This is Glab. He's the Good Luck Acorn Blob. Acorns are a good luck symbol all over the world. He didn't start out as an acorn. He was a blob with an acorn hat. Using positivity he attracted what he wanted into his life and now he radiates happiness. Anyone that sees him will have a great day, and a cornucopia of good things will come into their lives.
The needlepoint canvas is available in my shop. Here is the link.
Designed this needlepoint canvas in honor of the antique stove that I painted blue and put into my dollhouse condo. It's hand painted on 18 ct. canvas and will be available in the summer of 2020 in my online store here.
Abert's squirrels! They have crazy long ears! We saw our first one after moving to New Mexico a few months ago. So, I commemorated it by designing a needlepoint ornament. This canvas is 18 ct. and will be for sale in my online store soon! Maybe not until summer of 2020 though. :) Email me if you need this one sooner.
So cute! I'm in love with these Bermuda Bag ornaments. Note my Bermuda Bag obsession in my post from 2014. I designed them on 18 ct canvas and they are ready for purchase in my online store! I love these little alligators and whales so much.
I designed a chocolate bunny for needlepoint! He had a few iterations, but I think he's at a really good place now. I'm offering a canvas or kit with a solid background or this Zigzag jacquard background. The kit has gorgeous silk thread. Available now in my online store!
Doing some "calligraphy" style lettering lately. I'm using the Pilot Custom 912 Fountain Pen with the FA Falcon Nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink I wrote in is Iroshizuku Murakami Shikibu, a wet ink that is just divine. The outer drawing is Tombow Brush Pens, Watercolor pencils and the fantastic Platinum Carbon Ink pen with the Extra Fine nib.
The guys at Nibs.com set and optimized the Pilot Custom 912 at purchase for no extra charge. Love them. Wrote them a little thank you note below.
The Platinum Carbon Ink pen is, for the money, the best art purchase. The ink is waterproof and can draw on watercolor and not smear. What a great thing!!
I started this blog in 2006 for knitting. A ton of various crafts have happened since then, but now I'm in love with needlepoint! I live in the mountains of New Mexico with my husband, Tim, and our dogs, Prince and Ralphy. I sell my hand painted needlepoint canvases and kits in my Big Cartel online store.
