Mad Love for this Painted Pony Needlepoint Design

I do hope someone around here remembers me on Mother's Day!

Hart Hunt's Trees

Besides finishing a bit of field and starting a small bush, this is what you get with almost eight straight hours of stitching.  You would think that you would finish something working on it that long but NOOOO.  I am pretty happy with the results though.  The tree is stitched in packed outline and the leaves are lazy daisy stitches.  All the the stitch and thread selections are from the stitch guide written by Amy Bunger.   This one is for sale on her website.  That's amysgoldenstrand.com.  

Check out her newsletter while you are there.  Someone you know is featured in the customer gallery.   
Happy Saturday stitching!

Hart Hunt

I am starting on my hunting dogs.  The bodies are done in elongated continental.  Back legs are done in basketweave.  Big cross stitches with four strands of cotton for the eyes.  I like the way the bottom dog eye looks with the elongated continental stitch half covering it.  

Hope you have a happy weekend stitching away!

Just a Peek

Now that we've "killed the bill"  in the TX Lege, I am back stitching.  I can't show the whole canvas since this is my Secret Swan ornament for our Christmas Exchange.  

A little brick stitch using Neon Rays for the boot bottom.  Four strands of silk for the boot shaft.  It's a one trip herringbone for the sole using Kreinik size 8.  I hope my fellow Swan will love this when she opens it at our annual Christmas ornament exchange.

I Knew There Was One More

I do have one more Diane Ulmer Pedersen from Painted Pony.  I call this one The Village.  I have started the church with a stitch suggestion from my last Rent Amy Day.  This beauty will be headed back to Memphis very shortly to get some more stitch suggestions.   Fun days ahead.

At least for the moment.  Thank God Almighty the Texas Legislature only meets every other year.   I think our issue is dead so back to the world I want to inhabit!  Needlepoint Land.

I just saw one of Diane Ulmer Pedersen's wonderful canvases on Facebook.  It was stitched using a guide from Amy Bunger.  The designs from DUP are distributed by Painted Pony.  I kind of like them.
