About Me

My photo
I'm in my 40's, married to my best friend and we have 2 girls (19 & 11). I love all kinds of needlework, especially cross stitch, specifically samplers and French & Italian designs.

Some recent finishes...

Here are a few of my recent finishes.  I am the world's worst photographer/scanner, because the pictures really do not do the finishes any justice, lol!
"Octogonal Quaker" by A Mon Ami Pierre on 25ct Lugana from Enchanted Fabrics using 1 strand Gloriana's Fall Foliage over 1 fabric thread:

The Needle's Content "Spring Flowers" on 35 ct linen w/ Crescent Colours cotton overdyed floss.

Freebie Coeur (heart)from Reflets de Soie on 32 ct linen with Waterlilies Bermuda Reef.
I added the wording myself, it means "My Sister's Heart."It's supposed to anyway, lol.

 "Ying Yang" by Anagram Diffusion on 32 ct linen w/ 1 strand Silk N Colors Toasted Marshmallow (from The Thread Gatherer) over 2 fabric threads.

This is La D Da's "Quaker Alphabet" done on 25ct lugana over one fabric thread. I used Gloriana silk floss in Desert Sage and Thread Gatherer Silk N Colors in Cinnamon Stick.

 I obviously need to frame these or finish them somehow. I have a bunsh of finishes just hanging in my "finish" closet, lol.  My goal for the next few months is to learn to finish pieces into quilted wall-hangings, needlerolls, cubes, fobs, etc.
