My second project was Teresa Wentzler's Carousel. It took me 5 years to finish. Part of it was stitched while I was on a trip to Russia! I want to mount it in a shadowbox like frame with a music box playing "Carousel Waltz". My digital camera just didn't pick it up well, so I scanned it into the computer. That is why it is in 3 pieces! I used a little Kreinik metallic thread to highlight some areas. It does not show up on the scan. I just LOVE this piece!! I stitched it on 32 ct. Laguna Mushroom.
My First project, around 1990, was a little Precious Moments lamb on a cliff. It may be in storage somewhere. My next project was a little more difficult!
I stitched a Baby Sampler with a Teddy Bear and some alphabet blocks for some special friends. Little David was born in 1993, I finished it about a year later! No pic!
Then I stitched "When Love Blooms" from a Leisure Arts chart for my parents 40th Anniversary in 1994. I actually got it done on time for the celebration too!
The next thing I fell in love with was this "Mizrach" designed by Barbara Ann Richter in Just Cross Stitch Nov/Dec 1994. The colors are Peacock Blue and Corals. This is the first project I did with beads. They don't show up, but they are there! Finished 2002.
Next for a little fun, I stitched one of the horses from the carousel on a T-shirt that I had dyed pink. I really like the outcome. You can kinda see the Krienik gold metalics in the pole! I will definately be doing more of this!
