More Custom Heart Ornaments!

I have two more new designs, both heart-shape ornaments in the spirit of what I have done for Thistle Hill.  These designs are exclusively for Fancy Stitches, the first design depicts the shop itself, the second is the Liberty Hotel, also located in Cleburne, TX and familiar to many who have visited the shop.  Cynthia, who stitched my Falling Stars club, has stitched the Fancy Stitches heart and of course she has written up a stitch guide too!  Just give the shop a call at 817 641 4761 to order your canvas today!

Happy New Year, A Little Bit Late!

Better late than ever though, right?  My holiday season was exceptionally chaotic as it coincided with selling our house!  I'll be moving soon and am really looking forward to being settled again.  In the meantime, there is a LOT of EyeCandy things going on.  The 4th chapter of Thistle Hill's "A Needlepoint Love Story" is coming up on February 22nd to the 26th and once again I am very happy to have created brand new ornament to commemorate this year's chapter.  This design features an interior view of Thistle Hill, the grand staircase, complete with stockings!  In past exhibits, the house's many running feet of stair rails have been absolutely covered by the dozens and dozens of stockings sent in for display and I found that hugely inspirational for this year's ornament.  I hope you will get a chance to visit in person to see this grand home covered in exquisite needlepoint!

Here are the ornaments from the past three year's exhibits, all of these are still available and can be ordered via Historic Fort Worth.

A Sparkling December!

So many people in my Stitch a Falling Star club are getting their ornaments home in time for the holidays this year!  Here are couple of the most recent arrivals:

Harriet just got hers from West Coast Finishing:

Polly just got a couple back also, along with a pile of other Christmas finishing:

In other club news, my Bejeweled Bargello club has a double shipment this month, as I am sending out a bonus ornament along with December's ornament:

Hope you all have a sparkling holiday season as well!!

Fabulous Fall Finishing!

So many great finishes to show off today, including a County Fair winner!  It is that time of year, Fall and Fair season too, such fun!

First up is my friend Emily's beautiful finish of my Bejeweled Bargello ornament.  Beautiful stitching by Emily, then great finishing from the Chaparral here in Houston.

Gayle at Fancy Stitches completed my Gift Elf, this little gal is the spitting image of her granddaughter Peyton!  Great job on this, I love the background!

Lisa C. entered three of her completed Stars from the Stitch a Falling Star club and won three ribbons at the Austin County Fair-- Grand, Reserve and High Point!  Congrats to you Lisa, they are great!

It's been a while since I've seen a new finish from my Candy Corn Club, this one was shared by Louise's Needlework and it is gorgeous!

Last but not least, Debbie L. stitched my Cowboy Owl and sent it to TJ's for the truly fab finishing, love the styling on that pillow!

That's it for this week, keep those great pictures coming in, I love to show off your work!!
