A Peek at the Tree Top Birth Sampler

This is my work in progress of Tree Top Birth Sampler.  


I am stitching on 40 ct Weeks Dye Works Tin Roof, over 2. Using Sullivan's thread, just one strand with good coverage.  


I took this picture a few days ago, and as of last night was a lot further along.  


This has been a lot of fun, not too many color changes and I have to say, I can really see the count nicely using the magnifier on my Daylight floor lamp!


This design will be released in the spring of 2012. I hope i can have it ready for the February show!

A Nice Little Surprise

I received a sweet little email from a writer by the name of  Namita Roy who tells me "I stumbled across your blog and I loved your posts and photos. Your needlework designs and cross stitches are so beautifully done. On a somewhat different note, would you be interested in having your site featured on our blog?" 

Of course, my answer was Yes!!  The blog to which she contributes is called Pocket Change (http://pocketchange.become.com/).  There the reader can find  a wide variety of topics for the fashionista,  pet lover, tech fanatic and creative homemaker alike.  It's quite a fascinating site with lots of wonderful articles, ideas, great images.  I'm going to enjoy browsing out there.  

She's posted a little snippet on my perspective of the designing life - so you can read about Tempting Tangles Blog on Pocket Change/become.com .

Perhaps you will learn something new.  I did. :-)
