Fall Projects

11 Sep

Hello everyone!

Fall is nearly here! ( less than 12 days!) I am gearing up for my Halloween celebrations, and my Fall garden work….and of course stitching!

I have been working on several projects at once ( when is that not the case, right? lol!) Anyway I wanted to share with you what I have been working on.

If you remember back a while ago, I began a project for my husband its the mascot of the school where he earned his PhD, NC State. So I took a photo of the mascot, which was on one of the things he had bought while in School. Then I did some editing of the photo, both before and after plotting it on my KG-Chart cross stitching program. When I was happy with it I printed it out and began stitching. (that was last year) I had to put this project down for a while to work on a commissioned piece, But I am now back at it! Here is a progress photo!

Also, I have been working on two pieces which I designed myself.  The first one is my first try at making a sampler. This one I hope to put a Bible verse or a poem into the open space above the picture. This piece has a woods and Nature feel to it, including Cardinal and blue jay birds, a cabin scene, trees, and a handsome buck on the bottom. In the bottom open space, I left room for the date, and special event information, such as a wedding, or birth announcement. I plan to use a back-stitch alphabet that is 3 or 4 cross stitches high.

Here is my progress on this piece:

I have created another piece that I had lots of fun doing. My sister and my husband even gave me some input so I hope that others will be interested in this design. 🙂 I was thinking of some of the Oriental and Celtic designs I have seen and admired, as I drew this.

Here is my progress on this piece:

If you wish to stitch any of these pieces, contact me at this address, linda.shockley@hotmail.com  I can send you the color list and the pattern, with sizes calculated for several different Aida fabrics. Some patterns also can come in several different color schemes. All this for $10 (US Dollars). If you wish for me to stitch one of my own designs for you, or create a pattern from a photo, or image, or stitch something else for you, contact me for a free estimate.
