Love & Marriage by Lorene (Lorie)

Lorie stitched this for her son Matt and his wife Paula. She used 3 strands of DMC floss through out and stitched it on Banjo Cloth by Charles Craft. Looks like it was an anniversary gift by looking at the date! I love the fabric. Thanks for sharing Lorie....Nancy

Margarita by Vicki

I could not resize this any bigger. I love the fabric Vicki used! FROM VICKI"It was stitched with DMC and the border was WDW (just a skein that I had lying around), I tend to change the recommended colours on "funky" (that is a good word in Australia LOL) designs like this one.
The fabric was from an Australian Fabric dyer - Naomi at Stitches and Spice, it was fabric that I picked up at a craft fair about 4 years ago and it was just waiting for a design like this to be stitched onto it ."
Thanks for sharing your finish with us. Great stitching...........Nancy*GloryBee

Dora has done it again!

Dora attended my stitch-in last Saturday and I got to see this in person. The picture does not do her stitching and finishing justice. It is absolutely stunning in person! She stitched it on 40 ct sand linen. Great job, as always! Nancy

Four from Ruth

Ruth sent pictures of four she completed. I think her fabric color choices are wonderful. And I love Hauntsville! The frame is great. Thanks for sharing these with us........Nancy

Catherine stitched this for a friend celebrating a birthday on July 5th. Fantastic job on the pillow. I wish I had some of the finishing talent I see on the stitching blogs. Thanks again Catherine....Nancy

Freebie from Kim

Kim, one of my model stitchers, sent along this picture of a freebie from my website. She stitched it over one and finished it as a scissor fob. I love the primitive look the jute gives it. Nice photo, too. Thanks Kim!
