Free Chart "Lend A Hand"



I was looking in my software program at some things that I haven't done anything with. I would like to give this chart to you free. Make it for a cause or for a friend that has given you a helping hand. Maybe even for that someone that is always helping out. I haven't stitched it yet so you need to choose your own colors. Maybe a pink heart for breast cancer awareness,or change the flesh tone. Please make it your own or special for someone else. Make it for your children's room to remind them that they should at least lend a hand once a day. Maybe you could put it someones lunch box, and have it mean that they have to do a good deed in school,come home, and share what they've done. Be creative for a helping hand, pass it on or pay it forward.
This is a free chart for you to stitch, not for commercial use.
Have a great week
Love Donna
I believe you have to save the image to your pictures and then print from your file.

Happy Sunday

Good Morning,
I feel better, my cold is gone. We had a nice holiday with family. We're babysitting my grandson today. What a cutie. He reminds me so much of my son when he was that age. I have some photos of "Courage" that Dora finished and shared with us. It looks great. Well I'm off to babysit, maybe I'll have more time later to post but I'm busy with a two year old, having fun.

What a Cold!!


Ok I'll try to post something but I have the worst cold. I can't stop sneezing and my nose is like a faucet. Maybe more than you wanted to know, sorry.

I've been working on something for next year for a release every month. I'm trying to incorporate wool work with cross stitching. But I'm giving you two options to finish it if you don't like to work with wool. I'll give you a peek next week.

Oh well I guess winter is here because my car doesn't like winter either. It wouldn't start yesterday. We had to get someone to come and give it a jump. Time for a garage visit I guess.

This photo is something I made up that I was saving but I can share it today.
(But it's still a secret)

Have a good Monday
Donna

Snowflake Ornie's



I thought I would share a picture of what I made with some of the snowflakes from my new pattern.
I stitched some flakes on linen * cut out round circles from felted wool * cut out a center circle from the top one * buttonholed them together * cut out some leaves from the felted wool * sewed them on *added beads * added a wool hanger.
There you go. Quick stitched winter decorations.
Hang them in your window, wreath, or from your tree.
Just an idea to share.

A Peek at my Wool Work


Happy Tuesday, and a Memorable Veterans Day,
Thank you to all that serve and have served.
I wanted to share what I worked on the other night.
So here is only a peek. I posted the whole picture on my Etsy shop.
Keep those fingers busy. Tis the season.
Have a great day
Love Donna

New Design Peek



I think my daughter changed the color on the camera because these colors are so bad. But I promised a picture so here they are for know. I need to fix the camera before I can post any more and she's at work. So at least here is something.

Last of the Fall Tin Containers and My Imagination

I've posted the last of my "Fall Tin Pin Containers". I'll be focusing next on some Christmas decorations, birds, strawberries, and wall pockets for all those dried berries.

I'm still working on finishing my frame for the next cross stitch release. I promise to have it finished for a posting tomorrow.
Here's a picture of one of the things I just posted on my Etsy.

Well I'll be stitching all night. I've made myself a fake fireplace to stitch in front of. I've been wishing all week that I could go some place like a log cabin with a fireplace, just sit on a cozy comfy chair, not be bothered, and just stitch all day. Well I'm using my imagination except that I have to put the lights on to see.

Have a good night,
Donna

New Things on Etsy




Good Morning,
I've been up bright and early again. I've been adding some things to my Etsy shop. Here are some photos. Off to daycare to watch the babies. They're not used to the hour change yet, ugh. It will take time. Well have a good day, Donna

More Things and a Trunk Show


Here is a picture of my Pin Tin that I use for myself. Sorry the picture is a little blury, crazy camera.

What a nice warm day we had here. We didn't have to put the heat on.

I went to the post office to mail out a trunk show that will be visiting "Where Victorias Angels Stitch" in Clifton NJ. It's 15 minutes outside of Manhattan. So if any one is in that area stop by and see Tawny. I provided a free raffle give away of "The series Box of...Season charts (4) and a Faux hand painted frame that I made for the series. So visit the shop and sign up for the raffle.

I'm still working on the faux frame for "Winter Cove". I will have it finished for this weekend.

Good night

New Design Peek


Here is a very small peek at my new design. Can you guess what it is? Well I changed "Autumn Cove" to "Winter Cove". I finally finished it this morning. I'm not used to the hour change yet and I was up bright and early. It went so quickly with the Aida cloth. I'm off to the art store to buy my frame bars to put together and paint for the model. I will post a finished picture next weekend.
I need to plan some kind of town for my MM&IRR.
