David Strikes Again

Carol just posted photographs of two pieces she stitched using David McCaskill stitch guides on Facebook, so I thought I'd share the links to show off David's wonderful guides and her stitching.  The first is a Zecca peacock...

...and the second is one of Georg James' florals.

If you are interested in David's guides, contact him through Needle Nook of La Jolla.

The New Hobby (Maggie and Robin King)

Vicki has posted a great photo on Facebook of her finished "The New Hobby" which is a Maggie canvas she stitched using a Robin King guide.

The guide is available now from Robin, just in case you want her by your side as you stitch this very funny canvas.

Patricia Sone's Work to Admire UPDATED

I've just discovered that not only does Patricia Sone have a Facebook page listing her work, she has a blog!

It's a work-in-progress, so not everything is in place yet.  For now, if you see a guide or class project you are interested in, contact Patricia via Facebook.

UPDATE:  Melissa Shirley has announced two new Patricia Sone guides for her canvases--Yellow Bird House...

...and Gardening Bunny, which is a Mary Lake-Thompson design Melissa distributes.

A New Voice from Owl Stitchery UPDATED AGAIN

Mary's Christmas Tree

There's a new stitch guide writer in town--Mary Waldesmith of Owl Stitchery. Newly retired, Mary has started a website and blog featuring her guides.  Visit her website to contact Mary about writing a guide for your canvas.

Visit Mary's blog to see the guides she's done. The featured canvas is the new Holiday House from Needle Deeva that I posted about yesterday under the TNNA news tab, but Mary's also stitched the Fall Hearts series from Needle Deeva.  Use the tabs at the top of the page for the eye candy.

By the way, Mary also teaches Zentangle. Her abstract silver and gold Christmas tree design (pictured above) will be available to EGA members soon.  Keep your fingers crossed that ANG also uses this as a chapter project!

UPDATE:  Mary is creating a guide for Needle Deeva's Holiday House stocking.  Just in case you want more Holiday House than just the smaller piece she's guided.

UPDATE #2:  Mary's added photos of models she's stitched and created stitch guides for to her blog.  Click on either Owls or Stitched Canvases to see them all.
