Sharing my progress on a new design

sorry a bit wrinkled but i was in a rush

Happy day to all of the stitching souls out there :>)
I am sharing my progress on my new design. It does not have a name yet but any suggestions would be appreciated. And if I do pick one that you suggest I will send you a chart of the design for free. Yeah!!!
I have the vase complete with some bead work and some Rhodes stitches, eyelets, along with a little satin stitching. Then the leaves are complete with a few baby's breathes stitched with french knots in the center. And the last thing will be the flowers. I am having 5 large flowers that will be made with wool applique. And don't worry if you do not like to do wool applique  I am including the directions so that the 5 large flowers can be cross stitched :>) with some Weeks Dye Works floss.
This design will be released at TNNA in Nashville. So if your shop that you usually shop at is going to the show have them stop by Nordens booth because they will have the model and the charts.
So here is my sharing for today and I am off to visit mom


  1. Wow, that is so pretty! Can't wait to see the finished design!
