"Margaret- Did you recently post a picture of this piece back from the finishers? I am trying to find that picture.
Can you post it again, or e-mail it to me? email@example.com
"I just got my canvas today. I got the Witch and Cauldron--the one where the witch faces away from us and is stirring up a brew. It was hard to choose but it is too funny to see her "butt" sticking out as she stirs."
"That sounds cool. I have never heard of such a thing. Is it wood or do they do something in a "mold" with acrylic? Do you send the needlepoint piece off to them and they do the whole thing? Now I am really curious."
You mention ordering a frame. Is this one like for the Maggie pieces where it is specially made or do you mean you are having it done at the framers? I definitely plan to frame mine.
I was one of the ones that thought the…"
"Even more frustrating is when they give you the 12 hour window and they don't come till about 4 hours after that. Years ago in Houston we had Time Warner cable. They always gave you a window like that and an "on time…"
"Yes, Karen. I loved this pear canvas. I kept waiting for Ruth's glitz. Then, the needlepoint gods shortened the course. Next, the techno gods didn't allow the final posting. I feel like this has been a comedy of errors. Hopefully,…"

This is funny, we all have a story. I was going into pediatrics but then my father had an MI, actually 3, one after the other. I was so terrified he was going to die on me one day I started paying close attention to cardiology classes and ended up enjoying it a lot. But true to my initial aspirations I did both, adult and pediatric cardiology
Sorry, back too soon. Found Margaret's specialty (pediatrician) but most interestingly found out that Kate lives in Princeton. Hi Kate, I work in Princeton, so for some hours from Monday through Friday we're "neighbors". Such a small world
Hi Margaret and Kate, I think we have a reunion. Couldn;t find Margaret's specialty but I am a cardiologist. I guess I didn't go into surgery because I would take very long to stitch people up. Good to meet you here.
hi Margaret---nice to "meet" a fellow needlepointer who is also a physician...:) I am a psychiatrist who works in the college setting.....I find needlepoint to be a wonderful form of relaxation after "listening" all day...
