THEN I get this book in the mail and I stitched the “U” on the cover (and several other examples of this alphabet inside).
If you follow my blog you know that I modelstitch for Just Cross Stitch Magazine. One of my last really big projects for them was the Patriotic Teapot. And to my surprise it actually made the cover. If you look really hard you can see it UNDER THE BARCODE! Thanks JCS!
June in the modelstitching world is when the Christmas designs are usually done. Here’s a sneak preview of the design I just finished for Just Cross Stitch Magazine. Not a typical Christmas design, but it has a holiday theme:
Finished modelstitching this design in March and my friend Ginny told me that she saw it shown on the cover of the Christmas Ornament Preview issue. So excited. Been a while since I had anything on the cover. I have stitched two of these teapots and they are VERY time consuming – metallic threads, French knots, quarters stitches – you get the idea.
I can now show the nutcracker that I stitched last summer. It is part of a four design set that is in the November/December issue of Just Cross Stitch.
Here is the layout in the magazine:
Just happened to go to the magazine websites and noticed that these two designs that I modelstitched are in the October issue. I really had fun with the owl teapot. It apparently is part of a series and there will be many more.
Trust in the Lord and Amazing Grace are obviously companions. Amazing Grace was in the August 2012 issue. Guess they have stopped sending me the issue when my project is in one of them. L
These cute cupcake towels were in the June 2012 issue. LOTS of fun to do!
This also in the June issue is an adorable cat and mouse alphabet sampler.
Wow! I’ve stitched a lot lately, but nothing is on my walls!
