The needle keep heart was done with Weeks dyd works..Calebs Cherry Patch overdyed yarn,on 28 count monnaco cloth.

The heart bowl fillers are done in fabric,muslin and wool felt...Nice sized hearts

I have been stitching my fingers Trying to stitch as much as I can between orders..wish I could just stitch...but have business to run..

New Finish...Little House Winter Sampler

I was determined to finish this Winter Sampler over the Holidays...Its much prettier in person.The white stitches seem to wash out with the camera flashes. I think I will put it in a darker wood frame.I loved stitching it,except,my eyes are not that great and it was very hard to stitch the white. I used flax 28 count linen,dmc,weeks dye works,and some silk threads.
