ODD-ESSA Is Finished!

Well here she is in all her glory! The Pattern will be available for purchase soon. 
I just have some tweaking to do! 

I stitched her on 32 ct Vintage French Lilac, And used HDF Silks, Petite Silk Lame' and of course Kreinik and Mill Hill beads. She was a blast to stitch! As you see I couldn't put her down, only two days of work.....Now what to make her into?????

ODD-ESSA coming soon!

For those of you who enjoy Owls as much as I do! ODD-ESSA is a very hip girl with a real eye for color! LOL Well we'll see anyway since I am still stitching her!  Her is the border so far and I hope to have that done tonight and get started on the real treat!

I'm stitching this one with HDF silks. I really enjoy working with these silks they are super soft and reasonably priced! I am also stitching with just one strand to help my supplies go a little further!

I started my HAED with just one thread and I am really enjoying the out come and think it will be my new favorite thing to do!

And as an after thought here is my oldest son this year in football, we finally got the CD of the pictures!

Haed......Wha'ts the point?

I'll show you the point in just a few lines but first let me say I am totally in love with this design! I have only part of the first and smallest page done but yet there is a face. I cute little upturned face...and on that face is a tear! A tear I didn't even see until I stitched it! how cool is that! I love surprises and this is a good one.

This design is called "Happy Ever After" and is not the biggest HAED I have but it might have the most boring selection of colors....All Flesh tones, coppers,'s neutral city in here! BUT every once in a while there is a flower floating down for a little color.....

A happy little purple flower down in the corner was a nice find also! I can't wait to see how his eye area comes out....will post an update tomorrow....I should have the page done by then!

New Design in Progress....What do you think?

So here is a teaser pic of an upcoming design I am working on. This so far this is the inner border and my hubby picked out the colors! LOL I think he has pretty good taste! I would not have put black and yellow together on natural but I am really enjoying the outcome.

So this design goes through the months and will be quite sparkly when finished. Do you guys think it needs and outer border?????

New starts for a new year!

I totally rearranged my Wipocalypse list for this year and cut out several of the large projects as there is no way I could do them all. And I also picked out a new HAED project.....last night I did get a huge jump on it though!

Paris Mandala

Indian Summer Mandala

New design coming soon

happy Ever After
While the two mandalas are no longer on the to do list I thought you might like to see just how far I got before putting them aside. They may come back out later in the year ..who knows! But for right now I am focusing on the few I still have on my list.
