A Needle Art Love Story, Chapter 9 Begins Today

If you are in the Fort Worth area, you need to stop by this amazing exhibit of needle art at one of Fort Worth's very best historic mansions.  Now in it's 9th year, I am proud to say I have produced a new heart design for each "chapter" in this Love Story!  These canvases are sold at the show as a fundraiser for the preservation of Historic Fort Worth.  Here is this year's canvas:

The canvas is sold with a stitch guide, and kits are available as well-- here is the stitched model:

Here's a look at past year's hearts, also on display at the show:

I also exhibited 6 of my own designs at the show, here they are on display inside the gorgeous historic mansion, Ball-Eddleman-McFarland house:
