Needlepoint Design Tranquil Church and Happy Good Friday To Everyone

Needlepoint Design
Tranquil Church
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. The month of March is almost done. I tell you the older you get the faster time goes by. That can not be true but is sure seems like it. As usual March is a very hectic time. So as we wind down the madness of March (a little pun on the NCAA college basketball tournament that is going on right now) and the Easter weekend that is upon us, we thought it might be a great time to slow down, reflect, and take stock at where we are at. With Easter this Sunday and so many people headed to church to honor, worship and pray, we thought it was a good time for all of us to slow down, reflect, and take stock.

The question that needs to be answered is where is a good place to find that calmness so we can contemplate and evaluate? As you know with these questions we turn to the digital vaults of abullrun to give us these answers. The answer today is the Needlepoint Design Tranquil Church. With one look at this picturesque design and you know why that is the correct answer. One look at this design and a very peaceful calmness comes to you. What a perfect setting this church is located at. 

With all that being said there could only be one item that could be the feature of the day and you are correct it is the Needlepoint Design Tranquil Church.  Let yourself be carried to this obscure location and feel a sense of peace come over you. Checkout that illuminating sky, the lush greenery, and the running stream (those ducks are so cute), how perfect can it get. The finished size of this tranquil design is 12" x 16" (30 x 41 cm).

The Needlepoint Design Tranquil Church is from Dimensions and designed by Nicky Boehme. The kit includes cotton thread, full color print on 14 mesh canvas, needle, easy instructions, and a canvas 16" x 20" (41 x 51cm).  As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.

Cross Stitch Design Chickadees In Spring and Happy Easter

Cross Stitch Design
Chickadees In Spring
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. This is a great time of year. The leaves are starting to turn green, the temperature is getting a little warmer but not extremely hot, the flowers are starting to bloom, Major League Baseball is about to start, we are celebrating Easter, and spring is in the air. It is like we are starting fresh. Just something about this time of year gives us that extra bounce in our step, a better outlook on life, we just see much more of the beauty of the world. We like it, we hope you do to. With spring upon us and Easter just around the corner we thought why can't we have this feeling all the time. 

So with that thought hanging out there, we turn to our trusted friend the digital vaults at abullrun and asked this question, "What will help us feel like this most of the time?" With some quick calculations the digital vaults at abullrun came back with the Cross Stitch Design Chickadees In Spring. We think that is an excellent choice. Just take a look at this design above and it immediately puts a smile on your face. The newness of the chickadees gives you the fresh outlook on life (and they are very cute). What could be better than flowers blooming in the spring? Nothing comes to mind right now.

Without anymore delay lets feature the item of the day. Could it be anything but the Cross Stitch Design Chickadees In Spring? It so perfectly represents this time of year of love, hope, peace, joy and faith. We already feel that extra spring in our step and so will you. The finished size of the beautiful and hopeful design is 5" x 7" (13 x 18 cm).

The Cross Stitch Design Chickadees In Spring is from Dimensions Gold Collection Petites and designed by Bradley Jackson. The kit includes 16 count dove grey Aida cloth, cotton thread, needle, and instructions.  As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.

In Christianity Holy week is the last week of Lent and the week before Easter. It includes the religious holidays of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. It however does not include Easter.  Holy week gives us so much to ponder, so much inspiration and so much to believe in.

The question we have to ask is what is the best way to commemorate Holy week. For that answer and for all of our answers we turn to the digital vaults at abullrun. The digital vaults at abullrun came up with the Cross Stitch Design Inspirational ABC. We think it is an excellent choice.

From A to Z this design will inspire while you are working on this project and when the project is completed.

Cross Stitch Design Midnight Dance and March Madness

Cross Stitch Design Midnight Dance
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. March is a busy month. March has the first day of spring, baseball has its spring training, there is Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Pi Day, the Catholic Church has a new Pope, we experience daylight saving time, and right now we are experiencing March Madness. You ask what is March Madness. March Madness is the college basketball tournament that decides who is the best team in college basketball. The tournament is set into 4 brackets and each team advances with a win and each team is eliminated when they loose. They play till there is only one team that has not lost. We are sure you have seen these brackets they are all over the internet, the newspapers, and at work. A cottage industry has sprung up with this tournament. It seems you can pick who you think is going  to win each game and fill out your brackets and play along side co-workers, people in contests, and even the president of the United Sates. The President is picking Indiana to win it all (just for the record we are picking Duke, who are you picking?). They call this tournament the "Big Dance".

The question to ponder is what is a good dance. For that answer we turn to the digital vaults at abullrun. The digital vaults lead us away from basketball and to a romantic dance.  Not any romantic dance but a Cross Stitch Design Midnight Dance. Take a look a the picture above and you can feel the romance in the air. This design is sure to put excitement into your home as well as into your life.

I bet you can guess the featured item for today. You are correct the featured item is the Cross Stitch Design Midnight Dance. Just imagine you are out for dinner with that someone special, afterwards you see a movie or play or go for an evening stroll. Everything is going perfect and the evening ends with a midnight dance. A perfect night out and a memory that will last forever. This finished size of this romantic design is 11" x 15" (28 x 38cm).

The Cross Stitch Design Midnight Dance is from Dimensions Gold Collection and designed by Denis Nolet. The kit includes cotton thread, 18 count beige Aida fabric, thread sorter, needle, and easy instructions with a fabric size of 15" x 19".  As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.

Cross Stitch Design Tulip Trio and the First Day of Spring

Cross Stitch Design Tulip Trio
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. Do you know what today is? Today is March 20, 2013 which is the first day of spring. Yahooooo! We love spring time in the Rockies. Spring time in Colorado Springs brings many things to the area. One thing is the weather. As the old joke goes, Colorado is the only place you can use your heater and air conditioner in the same day. I always respond not just in the same day but the same hour. We have been know to experience all 4 seasons in the same day (you learn to dress in layers). Spring also brings the blooming of flowers. There is nothing as beautiful with the flowers in bloom in the Rockies.

The question that is upon us, what is the best way to celebrate the first day of spring? For that critical answer we turn to our trusted friend, the digital vaults at abullrun for that answer. Without any pause the answer came back the cross stitch design "Tulip Trio". What a magnificat choice that was. Take a look at those beautiful tulips above. The beauty of those tulips are breathtaking and they just make you smile. Beautiful flowers have the power to make you smile. By just looking at those tulips you can feel that extra spring in your step. 

With spring upon us there could only be one choice for the featured item of the day, and that is the Cross Stitch Design Tulip Trio. This lavish assemblage of Angelique tulips will bring the glory of spring into your home all year-round. What would be wrong with year around spring time and seeing all these beautiful flowers blooming all the time? The finished size of this beautiful spring image is 16" x 12" (41 x 30 cm).

The Cross Stitch Design Tulip Trio is from Dimensions Gold Collection. The kit includes 14-count ivory Aida, cotton thread, thread sorter, needle, with a fabric size: 20" x 16" (51 x 41 cm), and easy instructions.. As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.

Cross Stitch Design The Last Supper and Leonardo da Vinci

Cross Stitch Design The Last Supper
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. Easter will be here on March 31. One of the most viewed artworks of the events leading to Easter is the mural painting of The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo began work on The Last Supper in 1495 and completed it in 1498. The mural painting measures 180" × 350" (460 cm × 880 cm) and covers an end wall of the dining hall at the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, ItalyThe painting represents the scene of The Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples, as it is told in the Gospel of John, 13:21. The Last Supper portrays the reaction given by each apostle when Jesus tells them one would betray him. All twelve apostles have different reactions to what Jesus's says, with different degrees of anger and shock.

The question is what is the best depiction of Leonardo da Vinci mural painting. We turn that question over to the digital vaults at abullrun. Not surprisingly the digital vaults came back with the Stamped Cross Stitch Design The Last Supper. This design is perfect for any stitcher. Draw inspiration from this inspiring painting by Leonardo da Vinci.


With that lead up only one item could be the featured item today and the featured item is the Stamped Cross Stitch Design The Last Supper. The fabric is stamped with the design on the fabric. This does make it much easier to complete. Draw inspiration form this beautiful painting as you are working on this project and the joy from the finished project. The finished size of this inspiring image  is 9" x 24".


The Stamped Cross Stitch Design The Last Supper is from Design Works. The kit includes design stamped on 50/50 poly/cotton fabric, embroidery floss, needle, and instructions. As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.

Cross Stitch Design Majestic Peacock and Happy St. Patrick's Day

Cross Stitch Design Majestic Peacock
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello Everybody. You know what tomorrow is. Well, of course it is St. Patrick's Day. St. Patrick's Day is named after the most commonly recognized of the patron of saints of Ireland Saint Patrick. The day usually involves parades, festivals, wearing of the green, beer, shamrocks, (according to legend Saint Patrick used the 3 leaf shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish people) and the Chicago River is dyed green. Also many MLB baseball teams wear green caps during the day. There is a lot of stuff and celebration going on St. Patrick's Day.

The question that needs to be answered is, what is the best way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day?  We turn that question, as we turn most of our questions, to the digital vaults at abullrun. The best way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day is with the Cross Stitch Design Majestic Peacock. By taking a quick look at the picture you can see why. It is obviously the wearing of the green and this peacock is wearing the green. When we were growing up if you forgot to wear green on St. Patrick's Day you would get pinched. Today if someone pinches you for not wearing green that person is going to get popped in the nose. However, it is fun to see how people find ways to wear the green on St. Patrick's Day.

So in honor of St. Patrick's Day, the featured item of the day is the cross stitch design "Majestic Peacock".  This cross stitch design is more than celebrating St.Patrick's Day. This design has beauty all into itself. By using the arch as a frame, one gets a serene landscape. Then add this fabulous peacock and you get one exotic scene. The finished size of this fabulous design is 12" x 16".

The Cross Stitch Design Majestic Peacock is from Dimensions Gold Collection. The kit includes cotton thread, 14 count ivory Aida, thread palette, needle, and easy instructions. As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.

Kreinik Metallic Threads Candy Colors and Happy Pi Day

Kreinik Metallic Threads Candy Colors
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. Today is March 14 or 3.14. Hey 3.14 is Pi, so we want to wish everybody happy Pi day. For those of you who don't remember Pi it is is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Now it's coming back to you, your vaguely remembering that being mention in school. Remember it is approximately equal to 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter "π". You know its decimal representation never ends and never settles into a permanent repeating pattern. Now it's all coming back to you. On a side note did you also know that Albert Einstein was born on March 14. This is a big geek day.

The question on the table is how best to celebrate National Pi Day? To get the right answer we head over to the digital vaults at abullrun. Without any hesitation the answer is Kreinik Metallic Threads Candy Colors. What else could it be. These 9 spools (see picture above) represents a candy theme. One of those colors represents (you already know right) Key Lime Pie. There is no way you can celebrate National Pi Day without Kreinik thread "Key Lime Pie" (although I wish there was pumpkin pie or even cherry pie in those spools but key lime pie will work).

What else can be featured on National Pi Day than Kreinik Metallic Threads Candy Colors. These sweet treats are perfect for your diet, there is no way you can gan any weight. Just imagine what great projects you could create with these candy color threads. I wonder if you really could create a key lime pie with these threads. These threads can be used in cross stitch, needlepoint, quilting, jewelry, not so much for real pies.

The Kreinik Metallic Threads Candy Colors comes in Fine (#4) Braid and Fine (#8) Braid. The color stash includes the following 9 colors on 10 Meter (11yard) spools: 5700 - Cotton Candy , 5705 - Rock Candy Red, 5720 - Gum Drop Gold, 5725 - Lollipop Lemon, 5735 - Key Lime Pie, 5740 - Sugar Plum, 5750 - Coffee Toffee, 5760 – Marshmallow, 5765 - Orange Sherbet . As with all items at www.abullrun.com these threads are new and has never been opened and are shipped in air bubble mailer.
