Twister, Wild Hearts, and A Knitter Runs Amuck

Something must be in the air because I found two different versions of Twister on the World Wide Web today.  Here is the red and gray one, still underway...

...and here is the finished pink and ecru one.  Love it!

Twister is a charted design from the late Patricia Spencer.  If you are interested in seeing other charted pieces, you should look at what Scarlet Thread just added to their online shop.

If you are a painted canvas fiend, you'll enjoy Squiggee's Wild Hearts.  They come in zebra, cheetah, and more.

Nimble Needle is showing off the new Birds of a Feather canvases they have in stock.  There's going to be a trunk show from the same designer there soon, too.  If you are sick of the gray winter outside, this is a good antidote.

Since we are visiting Nimble Needle, romantics will want to check out the two colorways of the new William and Kate royal marriage canvas from Designers Forum.  Their wedding is the end of April, which seems very close these days.

The final link is for those who need a laugh.  Knitters apparently suffer from the same problem needlepointers do when it comes to starting new things instead of finishing old ones.

Maybe I shouldn't call myself the Master Enabler.  Maybe I am a virus in disguise, spreading needlepoint far and wide?

Jane, off to think it over here in Chilly Hollow
