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!
