Tony M. Peralta

Tony's work is awesome and he is definately thinking outside the box... he recently came out with a line of bowties. In the past he has done alot of t-shirts, screen-printing, and paintings. I am so excited about this because if you know Tony, you know what a stylish kind of guy he is. The ties are the traditional shape but have unique patterns designed by Tony but are also manufactured in unconventional materials, such as leather. On his website,, he uses the Madison Ave Boys to promote his ties, but you can also purchase other merchandise from him on the project shop. Check it out!

The Edwardian Needle

I have been working on my first cross-stitch project in probably about 15 years and have loved every minute of it. A couple of weeks ago I took the bus, about a 30 minute trip, to Bloomfield, NJ to visit the Edwardian Needle. This shop is pretty incredible, they offer classes and a huge assortment of threads- basically anything for all types of needlepoint. As a newbie, I did need some extra attention, and Pam, the owner/self-acclaimed stitching expert, treated me as her apprentice and taught me all I needed for my first design. I am planning on tracking my progress, due to the fact that it is taking me FOREVER to get through it. Over the past 4-5 days I have accomplished what- to you may seem like very little, but to me seems like a huge achievement. Here is the pattern I am using. The large flower on both ends is the center of the piece. The actual project will be long and narrow.

Rompers/Jumpsuits... A DO!

Strawberry Pincushions

I have decided to begin cross-stitching as a relaxing and creative hobby.... Before I could get started, I needed a pincushion to stay organized. I got the idea for the strawberry pincushion from the Martha Stewart website and I love them! Basically you use woven fabric, decorate it with french knots, and fill with sand. Easy and fun!
