Customer's Work

Take a Stand, by Maggie and stitched by Dena.  Lisa Krause did an absolutely fantastic frame to make Dena's piece really sing out.  Yes a few extra rows of background, for now the canvas is just place in the frame.  It never hurts to have a piece that makes one smile.

Go Fish by Melissa Shirley
 A case when I wish metallics would photograph, Helen added just a touch of metallics to the fish to keep it from being just ho hum.  Handsome plaid fabric, soon to be a pillow and a gift for a gentleman's study.
Owl canvas by DC Designs
Can you say color?  Marie loves color and here she decided to make this one a sampler teaching herself different stitches.  A flawless job when all that came before this was basket weave.
Ladies with Pink Bird by Ruth Schmuff

A challenging piece to say the least.  Katherine had so much fun with this one and I can't wait to see how it comes back as a pillow.  Great fur and the purple skirt looks so 70's.  So we begin and end this post with a few women with positive attitudes.

Lee Needlearts box and monogram
Dianne enjoys making these Monograms by Lee as gifts for friends and family.  This one is for her aunt who turns 90.  If you use your stash its a nice personalized gift for under $60.

Painted Pony modified Musical Angel
I say modified as Miriam stitched over the musical notes and staff and made a lovely red gown instead! One of many Painted Pony angels recently stitched; stay tuned for pics of others due back from the Finisher any day now.

Dump Truck by Alice Peterson
 Her Grandson has a thing for trucks so Elaine was delighted to know Alice Peterson had a dump truck canvas, perfect for his 3rd birthday.  Impeccably stitched in Silk n Ivory.
