Best Class Ever!
Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink. A friend of mine gave me this saying on a cute little glass dish. Thank you Pamela 🙂 If anything is possible with a little pink, imagine what is possible with a lot of pink? We stitched a pink flamingo with pink threads that are silky, […]
How many pink threads, beads and crystals does it take to stitch a flamingo? Not as many as you might think. This is a lulu mypinkturtle canvas that I am teaching this weekend at the beehive. Aren’t the threads yummy in all their glorious pinkness? Wait until you see what we do with those big […]
Wowza! I do love a finish. I wrote a stitchguide for Frida Dia de los Muertos by lulu mypinkturtle last fall and violá. Eleanor has her all stitched and ready for prime time viewing. She is a tour de force of happy fun colors and patterns. You won’t have time to get tired of any […]

The Queen is Holding Court!
I just love finishing when it comes back exceeding my vision. The Angel Queen by lulu mypinkturtle did just that! This was a mystery class last year and is now available as a canvas with guide or as a complete kit. You know I love over the top drama on my pieces. We added ruffles […]
Let’s go skating
We love a pretty finish. Mika stitched the skater by lulu mypinkturtle following my guide and it is super cute! Sometimes we don’t have photos of finished stitch guide canvases until you share so this was a fun treat for us. Thanks for sharing. xoruth P.S. If you would like your own skater, here’s the […]
It’s Finishing Friday
I love boxes of finishing! So many pretty things. It always inspires me. I love this finishing of La Sirena by lulu mypinkturtle. It went to a very special little girl from her grandmother Flora. Wendy stitched Lani’s Aloe pillow using Brenda Hart’s guide and now it resides in her brother’s Manhattan apartment. Jill did […]
Did someone say beads?
The final lesson of lulu mypinkturtles’s angel queen is all about the beads! What can I say? I love beads. I added crystal jewelry and the hearts in her hands are beaded and sparkling. The motifs in the corners were some of my favorite parts of the canvas. Ok, there’s two of each, and I […]
The More Bling the Better
She’s a Queen afterall, and an angel queen at that! Today was the second lesson of lulu mypinkturtle’s Angel Queen! She’s a doll! Just look at that face! She now has big luscious curly hair thanks to slightly ruched Petite Frosty Rays in black. Magic and a snap to stitch. Her crown is beaded and […]
I love all of lulu mypinkturtle‘s girls. The girls have such sweet happy faces with big beautiful eyes and the perfect pouty lips. They really are a joy to stitch. The designs are always happy and the spaces lend themselves to stitches and patterns, YAY! The Angel Queen is our current mystery class and she […]
The Wish for More Time
This weekend was our first embellishment class of 2017. We had a great group of ladies despite the snow. They came from all parts of the country to visit and stitch. Thank you all for coming! When I teach an embellishment class I work out all of the details for the canvas ahead of time. […]
A new lulu for a new year!
What do you think? Let’s stitch a brand new lulu mypinkturtle canvas as the first mystery class of the new year! We all love lulu so much, and this canvas is certain to be even cuter once we add threads, beads and stitches to it. Imagine the possibilities! Lulu’s angel queen is 10 x 10 […]
Beaches, mermaids and seashells
I’m dreaming of sunshine and it’s not even Winter yet. How can I not be, when I look at this little mermaid. She’s such a pretty little mermaid with her mercat. Designed by lulu mypinkturtle and taught as a mystery class last summer, La Sirena and her mercat make me happy, really happy! This […]
lulu my lulu
Look what we have! New lulu mypinkturtle canvases! Woo Hoo! Lulu’s canvases continue to make me happy. Today I am obsessed with Catnip Party, duh! and Las Flores de Muerte. Tomorrow it may be different canvases but you really can’t go wrong with any of them. I love that I can do fun stitches on […]
More Stitchy Fun and new guides!
I promised to post more pictures from the weekend class and here they are! First up is this darling chihuahua girl canvas by lulu mypinkturtle. I could barely contain myself while writing the guide and again while Sue was stitching on it. Thank goodness she is a turbo stitcher! Look at all the areas […]
This weekend was our first major embellishment class of the year! I taught eight wonderful ladies and we had a great time. Each student picked their canvas several months in advance and I wrote detailed stitch guides. We then spent two days together reviewing the guides and test stitching various areas. It’s lots of fun. […]
We love our lulu canvases. Each is more fun than the next. Look at all the fun details to keep you excited. These are our 6 newest canvases. You can see the entire collection on-line here. Thanks for visiting xo ruth
Ready for a Swim?
Lulu’s La Sirena is complete. Today was the final lesson. She is off to the finisher next. It was such a fun stitch! I loved every minute of it. There were lots of little details in today’s class. We finished her tail with Buttonhole flowers. Love them! Stitched in Floche, they are quick and […]
It’s all in the details
Lots and lots of little areas and details. That’s what makes this canvas so fun. Even though the areas are small we can still fit stitches in them. Today was lesson two of Lulu’s La Sirena Mystery Class. She’s oodles of fun to stitch. Her tail is a new Scallop Stitch stitched in the […]
We started a new mystery class, Lulu’s La Sirena, at the shop today! I love the mystery classes. They are fun and keep me focused on one project. (Or 4 depending upon how you count.) Today’s class was quiet and laid back. Lulu Mypinkturtle’s beautiful mermaid is already coming to life. We stitched her face […]
Lulu’s La Sirena
Where does the time go? We will finish Sitting Pretty by CBK next weekend and I have totally forgotten to post the next mystery class. Where is my mind? Our next mystery starting at the end of this month is Lulu’s La Sirena! Is this not just the cutest canvas ever? I’ve been itching to […]
