Future Projects

These are pieces that I have finished over the years.  These are not ALL the pieces I have done, but only the ones I have access to, or can find images off.  Where noted, these are scans right from the stitched piece.  In many cases, the piece was too large for my scanner, so I have also included an image either scanned from the package, or obtained elsewhere from the Web.  In some circumstances, I no longer have the finished piece, so have simply put in an image obtained elsewhere.

Passione Ricamo's Winter Fairy Spirit.  Yes, this is the second time I have stitched this one.  I just wasn't pleased with the first one and had to do her again.  Stitched on Silkweaver's Sapphire 32ct linen.  Substituted beads for snowflakes and border to white with pearl blending filiament.  Added pearl blending filiament to large snowflake.  Started December 24, 2004, finished April 22, 2005.

Unicorn Serenity
unicorn1.jpg

This is a piece of crewel embroidery that was completed when I was back in high school.  Most of it was stitched while I was back stage of many drama performances, between my appearances on stage.  I remember how the other performers would ask me over and over again how I could be calm enough to do sewing... and couldn't understand when I said that it was the sewing that calmed me! This was a kit from Dimensions.
