Hi everyone, I am fine, just enjoying the beautiful days.I've also been stitching. Working on a new design called "Summer Shade". It's almost done. Sorry I tried to take a picture of it tonight but my batteries died in my camera. Maybe tomorrow. But I did manage to get one photo earlier today of the pomegranate stumpwork with a frame that I painted for it.
I have a question for anyone out there. If you were to take a class at a cross stitch shop what kind of class would you like? I'm going to be teaching more and would like to know what you are looking for. I love stumpwork but I realize that it's not for everyone so any suggestion would be great. Thank you, Donna

Hi everyone, I am almost finished my job at the daycare. I will surely miss everyone. My daughter finished junior high this week too, on to high school. It's a time for changes, I have to look into the future with great expectations. I've been planning some stumpwork classes to give at Yankee Cross Stitch. A pomegranate is first, and a sunflower next. I do not have anything finished yet to show you but I have some pics of other projects that I finished a while ago. One is a pin cushion with a stumpwork flower on top. I got that pattern from a "Stitchers World" magazine a long time ago. The other is of a sunflower that I made up myself in a watering can and then there's a cross stitch pattern of a flower that I will release and make into a pinkeep (over one). I guess I have a thing for flowers and trees. I got a book from the library the other day of all very old trees. It's great, they're hundreds of years old and so wise. Well, until I finish another project so I'll have something to share with you. Have a great weekend. Donna

Well here it is. I finally finished it. I always have a hard time trying to figure out what to do for the frame but I do like this one for summer with the flowers pressed on it.
I noticed everyone finishing things as pin keeps so I took out one of my designs that I never finished and I'm working on it.
I'm also working on another design that I called "Mystic Island"
Well I'm keeping busy so until next time, Donna
