I am so happy I finally finished my stumpwork tree. I can't take a pic to share beacause it's too dark and my camera needs daylight for better pictures, So if I can tomorrow morning I will iron it and take a pic. Soooo excited!!! Well lets go watch those Red Soxs.

I just wanted to share a pic of my tree update. I was trying to make pomegranates for the tree but I like the way the acorns look on this tree better, so off with the pomegranate and on with more acorns. Sorry I tried the pomegranates but maybe on another tree. Donna

Well here I am again, Just spoke with Erica from Yankee Cross Stitch and talked about having a stitch group there. It will start in November and will meet every other Tuesday from 10:00am to 1:00pm. If you are interested please check in with her. It should be fun, I have alot of stitching to catch up on and would love to help anyone that has any questions and maybe share some stump work or stitching techniques. Her number is 603-964-9434 or www.yankeecrossstitch.com Hope to see you there in the beautiful New Hampshire seacoast. Also just to mention Yankee Cross Stitch has my other trunk show. I've split up my trunk shows into 2 because I have to many models to send out to one shop, they take up to much space. If your in the seacoast area please take a peek. Maybe I'll see you there, Donna

Good Morning! What a beautiful day, a bit chilly but it's good. I've been working on a deadline for a class submission and here is a peek of a tree. I just laid down the foundation and I have to fill in the top layer. The look I'm going for is a reproduction of traditional stumpwork. So think old for me and wish me luck. Have a great day, Donna

Hi everyone, I just finished a new design called "Rolling Hills Of Autumn" Here are some pics. I'll give more info tomorrow. But I do have a "Rolling Hills Of Winter" in the making too. It was fun to stitch. I used algerian eye, rhodes stitch and some satin also along with cross stitch.
