It's me. I just finished "Summer Shade" today. I finished it on the beach while my daughter went off with some friends. So quiet and cool. It was wonderful. Tomorrow onto the frame and more class ideas for Yankee Cross Stitch. Have a great day, Donna

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
