This is the piece I did for my cousin Sean who got married at the end of April. I forgot to take pictures of it after it was framed.

The Back of the piece. My goal is to always make it look as much like the front as possible. :-P

I made this for my good lj friend sillyliss's daughter. It turned out just how I wanted it to. She has it now, so these pictures aren't spoiling anything.

I just put my initials and the year with sharpie on the felt. Not exactly heirloom quality, but I think it worked well.

This piece is from the 2008 cross stitch-a-day calendar. It is one of the few that I really knew I was going to stitch the second I saw it. I finished this much while we were visiting Mike's parents for 3 days in late January.

I just love the cow. It is perfect for our animal theme in her bedroom, and now I have a piece of your art forever. Er, I mean Emmy does. :) :) :)

Oh,a nd all the other pieces are great, too. I love when you post pictures of your cross stitching.

You've got it 'til Emmy moves out. I think that's plenty of time. :-P

Thanks! I like posting pictures because it feels like I so rarely finish anything, especially compared to the people at cross_stitch

Hi,

Thanks so much for the wonderful gift you gave us. I love that it's pink my favorite color. I also love the pineapple welcome sign. I should have never came to this website b/c now i have all ideas on stuff i would love for you to make me and Sean for our home. If ever you are not busy and you have no other cross stitching to do would you be able to make us a palm tree welcome sign? We love palm tress we have a few real ones. Would you also be able to make us a cartoon frog so that we can hang it in our babies room (when we have a baby) If you don't have time don't worry about it. Your work is great! It was really wonderful to have you at our wedding and i hope to see you real soon. Email me sometime Aunt Diane has my email address just ask her for it.

Love,
Stephanie & Sean
