Basketweave Needlepoint stitch

I’m a bit of a newcomer in a local bar trivia group, but man, it would be hard to tell! These are definitely my people! Big pop culture nerds from all walks of life, most of whom are very crafty in their own rights. We had a make-up Halloween party this last weekend (we have […]

The Needle Works

I did make it down to Austin with my dad (projects in tow). The first day we were in town, I was feeling antsy and decided I needed to get out over my lunch hour. I looked at places I could walk to get lunch… and then I looked to see if there were any […]

If You Give an Emma a Project…

I’m taking another class at The Studio, this time it’s a needlepoint chess/checkerboard where the squares are different stitches. Part of me knows this was not a smart thing to start. I have three projects I’m trying to finish before Ren Fest is over, I promised two skeins of handspun yarn to two different friends […]
