That’s the name of a Thurber book and I love it as a description of an assortment of stuff. That’s what I have for you today: a sale, a plea for help, and info about a new product.
First off, Homestead Needle Arts in MIchigan is having a sale on all charted needlepoint. It’s 20% off charts, excluding only a few of the newest items. In addition, all in-stock DebBee’s Designs and Needle Delights charts are 25% off. Sudberry wooden boxes are 20% off, and Appleton & Strand wools are 40% off. If you buy threads & canvas with a chart purchase, you’ll get 10% off them as well. There are even some charts at bigger discounts, up to 50%.
The sale does count for Internet orders, but only applies to in-stock items.

A reader is looking for #237 Grey Paternayan 3 ply persian yarn for a project I am working. She needs a
total of 12 (twelve) of the 1/4 lb hanks. She is having trouble
finding this color in the quantity she needs and doesn’t have a problem with buying the 1/8 lb skeins to add up to the total amount.
If you have this thread and you are willing to sell (or give) it to her, please contact me.
Needlepoint a Wedding Date
UK needlepoint designer Felicity Hall has a lovely series of ornate numbers available in her needlepoint kits. IN honor of the royal wedding she has made PDF charts of the numerals from 0-9 available for only 5 pounds (about $8 US). They are all the same size so you can combine them to make any date. The packet also includes a chart for a period and suggestions for how to put them together.
It is only available through her website.
