Three Variations of Pat Mazu UPDATED

Brenda's Cyperpointers chapter is working one of Pat Mazu's designs.  I know my counted canvaswork friends will want to see this.  Pat does wonderful things which she often shares in ANG's Needle Pointers magazine.  If you belong to ANG you should dig out some old issues with Pat's work in them.

UPDATE:  The link above have disappeared but thanks to Sara Leigh, you can see them here.  Thanks for the help, SL!

If you don't belong--And why not?  This is the premier needlepoint educational organization!--you can pick up Pat's charts through Stitches From the Heart in Indiana which specializes in counted canvaswork.  They even have Pat's finishing book.

Personally, I have trouble with counted canvaswork since I can't count reliably but Pat's pieces are not that difficult, even for me, and when you use stash threads, the results are unexpected and spectacular.  I highly recommend her designs.

  1. Hi Jane, The 8/5/14 link to my Pinwheels by Pat Mazu blog disappeared because I updated it on 8/21/14. Sorry about that. And I too thank Sara for letting you know about this and to you for adding the new link. You're right about Pat's designs being wonderful and easy to work up.

    1. No problem, Brenda! I do Blog articles well in advance of their publication date, so occasionally these things happen. I'm just glad you did an update so we could see everything! Your stocking and ornaments are wonderful!
