Fear Not

This is my latest release "Fear Not" and I have to thank Deb Hunter for the wonderful job she does with my finishing.

I also wanted to add that my website has not been updated in quite a while due to problems with the host which I'm trying to get straightened out so please bear with me, thanks!

Busy, Busy, Busy...

This has been such a busy month, first taking the Merry Cox class "Flowers in the Fall". This is her photo and I will post my piece once I'm finished! I did change a few things which I think is always fun to do to make it my own.

Immediately after that I went and visited my friend Laurel who lives between Reno and Lake Tahoe. I was so impressed with the area and we had a great time without husbands or kids. We ate, talked, rearranged furniture, talked, shopped, talked and talked some more. Very relaxing and revitalizing for me.

For Thanksgiving we did our traditional trip to Mexico along with my husband's mother, sister and her husband and a huge yellow Labrador Retriever. It was windy the whole time but always beautiful. Another very relaxing time. Here are my kids acting goofy on the beach and posing below in the wind.

I hope everyone had a nice holiday!

Worlds Above

This is my latest release, "Worlds Above". The verse is from an old Quaker sampler and I used vintage Tundra 40 ct from Lakeside Linens to stitch it. We just returned from San Francisco where the weather was delightful and I was able to celebrate my birthday and my daughter was able to visit with one of her friends from Japan. The photo of my son was taken at Golden Gate Park.

A couple finishes

I've actually finished a few pieces that aren't my own and am getting ready to start a Merry Cox piece for a class in November. The top is from Birds of a Feather and is for my sister. The bottom is from Ewe and Eye and Friends and is call "Christmas Sampler".

It was a busy September and it's about to get busier so I thought I'd post a few photos before I take off again. The big excitement for me was a trip to Utah with friends. We had a great time in Salt Lake visiting all the sites, the needlework and quilt shops and getting in the mood for fall since the weather cooperated and was beautiful. We spent the first day visiting the Temple, the Tabernacle and Brigham Young's home (bottom photo). I was pleased that the president of the SWANs made time to meet us for lunch and it was great to get to meet her and know her. The next day we made a trip to Ogden and visited Jill Rensel's studio and Shepherd's Bush where I was pleased to see a model of my design "Heaven Above". The witch photo was taken at Gardener Village, a site with restored Utah homes turned into fun little shops. Overall, it was a nice, relaxing getaway with good friends.

A new designer...

Have a look:

This is Annie's first venture into the world of cross stitch and I love what she has produced with her first 3 designs. Have a look at her webpage, she's very accomplished with stitchery and dolls also.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who comments in my blog. I usually try to answer everyone but I have failed miserably at that this summer and I wanted everyone to know I do appreciate all you have to say and love looking at your blogs also.

Just Cross Stitch ornament issue

One of my favorite times of the year is when the new Just Cross Stitch ornament issue arrives. And I am especially excited this year as I am in it for the first time! I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
