Black Heart


Marly, of Samplers and Santas fame, posted this photo on her blog  (http://samplers-and-santas.blogspot.com/).  I don't know who stitched this, but so wish I did.  If it's you or if you know who did it, please let me know!  This brilliant person needs to be rewarded.

When I first saw this, I had one of those "why didn't I think of that??" moments.  It's so obvious!  It's perfect.  It's SO much better than my framed version and absolutely no background stitching is required.  That's a huge bonus!!

Here's my version (I'm sorry to say):


Any help you can give me with locating the stitcher of the upper version would be greatly appreciated!

Hope you're all having a great Election Day!

Check Out the Antique Jewelry!


Anne and I recently found a website with vintage photographs of women.  I thought a lot of the jewelry was similar to the jewelry we make.

This one is quite the watch chain!


Gorgeous book chain on her necklace.




 What a dress!

A New Design!


Yep, I have another new design!!  Kind of last minute, as it's a Halloween/Autumn design, but I was inspired and Beth is a super-quick finisher, so here you go!  It's called Halloween on the Farm.

Not only did Beth do the stitching on this piece, but she did the finishing as well.  And, her husband Wayne, made the slide/candle box to fit this design perfectly!  Beth trimmed the design with Dames of the Needle's hand-dyed chenille trim (in Toasted Meringue), mounted the design onto something heavy, then mounted that onto the box lid.  It's gorgeous!!

See what I mean?!

If you'd like Beth and Wayne to do the same for you, give Beth a call at 502-376-0282 or email Wayne at wwiksen@gmail.com.

The design is stitched on 36-Count Mocha from Weeks Dye Works using DMC threads.  

It will be available in my Etsy shop on Friday, October 12th, thanks to the quick work by my printers!

Have a great Wednesday!

And the Winner is.....




Marty and I were absolutely amazed at the outpouring of interest, enthusiasm and ideas for the tenth Hawk Run Hollow design!  You all put such effort into this and we're very grateful.  Personally, I'm grateful to Marty for asking me to share in the fun of designing the next Hawk Run Hollow.  It's been years since my head has been in "Hawk Run Hollow mode" and I'm really looking forward to working on this design.

So, the tenth Hawk Run Hollow will be Halloween!!  I'm really happy about this as I love doing Halloween designs.  Thank you, thank you to Lydia Redeker for being the first to suggest this.  And thank you to all the stitchers, our sister Janet, shop owners, model stitchers for all of your ideas.  Marty should be good to go for a long, long time!!  Lydia will receive a free copy of the chart and will see her name "in lights" on the chart packaging.

Thank you too, to Tawny Korty from Where Victoria's Angels Stitch for literally supply us with a plan for the entire design!  Tawny your creativity is amazing!!

Marty and I are getting together this weekend to come up with a plan for this piece.  The ideas are rolling around in my head and I can't wait to hear what Marty has been thinking.  We don't have a time line in mind at this moment, but will probably come up with something this weekend.  We will keep you posted!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
