Scotch Stew Published in Needle Pointers

Needle Pointers magazine has published Scotch Stew in the May/June 2018 issue! The magazine is late reaching our homes but it got posted online a week ago. So, I knew that it wasn’t on the cover. But, it’s so rewarding and fun to see my design published. I can’t show much of what was published due to copyright issues but this should be ok.

Again, Pam Gardner did a magnificent job of diagramming the stitches and clarifying text I suggested. I was able to send her better diagrams than previous published pieces and she said that made it much easier for her. I sent everything to her shortly after Seminar last year and was able to practice using computer skills that I learned from Cynthia Thomas.

This was my second attempt at an all Scotch stitch design. Here is the piece framed (by Repenning Fine Arts in Audubon, NJ). It received a third place ribbon at Seminar last year. Both of my Scotch pieces will look great on our newly painted bedroom walls.

Postscript 1. I was thrilled to hear that a favorite designer of mine stitched this in another colorway and shared it with me – very pretty. Also, nice to hear that it was easy to follow the instructions and diagrams. She’s going to use it as a lead-in to a meeting program about changing colors or threads in a published project.

Postscript 2. I got a lovely thank you note from Diane from Needle Pointers magazine for sharing the design and I got an extra copy of the magazine.
