On to Number Two

I hope this will be finish number two for 2016 as of tomorrow! I finished the wings and the lettering yesterday.   Looks like I am down to the beading of the UA and little red star.  I hope the white star-shaped sequins I have will fit over the white stars at the bottom.

First Finish of 2016

Serendipity stitch
I love Amy's idea of stitching this with a matte thread and a shiny thread.  It looks so cute.

Quail Run Nativity

 I just saw that Debbie Woodard has Palma's stitched set to show at market this coming weekend.  Her stitched version is spectacular.  You can see it on Painted Pony Needlepoint Designs on Facebook.  Worth a look.  I so want to stitch mine!

Bits of stitching here and there

We went to visit the one and only Carolyn Baird a couple of weeks ago. She has studio time at Chaparral in Houston, TX.  We had the best time and got the greatest ideas.  I took this little bunny and stitched the design around the bunny in between my turns.  So cute.  More on that visit later.

Danae Easter Egg
I was about to pack this girl up but decided to leave her out for Valentine's Day.  I think she's adorable.   Stitches by me.

 I have gone as far as I can with this one until Colleen opens up again.  I need navy beads and something for the letters.  I tried basketweaving them and I don't like it.  More on January 5.
Painted Pony Yale Heart
 I picked up this girl when I had to put the Bulldog heart down.  I stitched the cross stitches on the the skirt and the dark red lines.  Then it was bedtime.  I hope to finish her tonight while I sit up and worry about the kids out and about on New Year's Eve.  Happy New Year to you all!
