Nifty Needlework

Greetings friends - Happy Sunday! It has been a bit of a whirlwind around here after our vacation - I have been working on an variety of creative things. I know some of you have read that I am working on new cross stitch designs and that is SO TRUE - I finished up a brand new model earlier this week and have several pieces in process - working on layouts, formats and you will see them soon. I'm still working out the details for releasing them, but when I know, you will know....there are also a magazine model and several other charting ideas in the works. As usual, I am busy with client orders for needlework finishing, custom sewing, and project pieces for my Etsy shop...and I managed to sew up a few fun birthday gifts, as well. My studio is a happy place!

I mentioned in a previous post that I would be back soon with some fabulous needlework finishing...and these finishes will not disappoint. Just a little reminder, these are not my designs or my stitching, just my finishing work. I enjoyed each of these so much...a couple challenged me and that is always a good thing. Details under the photos, if I have them...

I'm headed back to my stitching nest this afternoon - a little happy time with my needle and thread and a good movie. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday and make a little time to be creative this week...
