HAPPY DANCE !!!!!!!!

This is the finish of a Drawn Thread Freebie--All You Need is Love. Has a bunch of specialty stitches in it and is only 3.5 by 2 inches. I put it in a 5x7 inch frame. Came out really cute.

New Start

This is a freebie from the Drawn Thread. It is called All You Need is Love. It calls for Gloriana threads but I don't have any so I am using DMC.

Contest Entry

This is the entry for a Veteran's art show that our state is having. I am at this point 1/2 done. The needle shows the scale. 28ct evenweave 1 over 1 using DMC. The pattern is Simply Live by The Primative Needle. Called for Valdani Threads but I don't use those so I converted to DMC. The colors are a little bright, if I do it again I will use more subdued threads. The finished size will be 3.5 by 6 inches.
