Three Cute Finishes!

Some cute stuff to share today!  First up is my "Joy Cardinal" finished up with a cute berry sprig!  Thanks to Labors of Love Needlepoint Shop for the photo.

TJ always does a great job finishing my Christmas Star series, these were stitched by my friend Courtney M!

This is a custom name tag I painted for my friend Pat, stitched by her for our friend Vicky D.  Pat sent it to TJ for the basic finish, then she added the great beaded strap!

Another Chapter of A Needlepoint Love Story Comes to a Close!

This weekend marked the 6th chapter of A Needlepoint Love Story, an annual exhibit of needlework on display at Fort Worth's historic Thistle Hill mansion.  I have been fortunate enough to be involved for a few years now, painting each year's commemorative ornament and this year designing and teaching a class piece as well.  Here is a look at some of the fun:

This year's ornament was painted after the mansion's Breakfast Room, which doubles as the gift shop during the exhibit:


This is the finished class piece, a three-piece design called "Love Home Joy".  

One of my friends had her pedicure painted to match the class colors!  

Hope you can join us next year for Chapter 7!
