San Antonio Needlepoint Project

It's been so long since I've made a blog entry that I forgot my password! Let me share with you what I've been stitching: I was asked by Lisa at the Yarn Barn in San Antonio, TX to come up with something special for her shop during the national ANG Seminar which is being held in her city this year. This was something new for me and I said, "Why not!" So, Lisa sent various advertising pieces with pictures of local sites and our artists put together the above design which I stitched! It was really fun and something different for a change. I used Sundance Beads in the lettering, Sundance Sequins on the umbrella tops, DMC Memory Thread for the Texas flag pole and top. My favorite part is the life preserver on the boat, I covered a round plastic stitch counter for knitting with pearl cotton and attached it with floss. If you go to the seminar, plan a visit to the Yarn Barn to see the finished piece which is available with a stitch guide, and also check out our SundanceTrunk Show.


  1. I've seen this partially stitched and it is wonderful. Love it in the finished form! As usual, Cassie, your stitching is perfect! That arch looks like real stonework! My favorite part are the picado flags.

  2. This looks super! Love all of those special Sundance touches. Thanks for posting, Cassie.

  3. This is a fun stocking, Cassie. My memories of San Antonio center on the Riverwalk and the great food we had there. Not to mention the violinist who played for us while we ate. Unforgettable experience for me when I was around 10!

    Thanks for bringing that all back. How about showing off the whole thing for those of us who aren't going to San Antonio? Pretty please!
