Thought I would post this since I ran across it while deciding what Christmas decorations to use this year. This is a design that I created myself as an entry into a contest. I don’t consider myself as having any designing talent, but this was very fun to put together.

More Obligation Stitching

Like I don’t have enough on my plate with the RRs and modelstitching. A friend at work asked me to stitch something for her to donate to her Master Gardener’s fundraising event. Together we chose this design, but she didn’t like the bright pink color of the flowers. She found a photo of the same flower in a different color she liked. So I converted it! I think it came out pretty well!

A New Finish

Just finished this little mermaid design over the weekend. Hard to see in the picture, but I subbed out one color in her tail with a seafoam metallic thread to add a little sparkle. The fabric is from Sunny Dyes called Under the Sea. Would love to find a “porthole” type of frame for her.

A REAL cover this time!

I just got an email from JCS (because I subscribe) showing me the next issue and previewing some of the articles. It’s the scarecrow that I modelstitched for them! I’m so excited. I absolutely loved stitching this design and it was adorable when complete.

Purple Passion

Just completed my square for Karen’s Purple Passion RR (bottom left). I converted Joan Elliott’s Christmas Angel into purples. I actually prefer these colors to the original!


Trying to be a Glass Half Full Kind of Person

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 Stitchings

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:
