Superstition: Loretta Spears, designer

Project: Superstition (Mystery #13)

Designer: Loretta Spears

Type of needlework: Needlepoint & Pulled thread

Photos: 12

Comments: Now, I find this project so gorgeous. This is another Loretta Spears project, one of her mystery series. This one had a bit of everything in it, pulled thread, which was new to me and had some help with online stitchers, and there was also a bit of beading.

This is such a special design and I had the best of time stitching it. No wonder I love Loretta Spears designs. We all have designers that we prefer because of their style and for me she is one of them, though I have a long list of designers that I just love their work.

Comments: Who can resist stitching some stitching accessories and learning how to finish them all? I picked up
 my own colors for this series of 6 different accessories and I just love how they have come out.
 Learned quite a bit about finishing too in the process. That was a lot of fun.

Coronation: Jim Wurth, designer

Project: Coronation
(1st of the series)

Designer: Jim Wurth

Series: Dodecagon ornaments

Type of needlework: Needlepoint

Comments: When I first saw this series of ornaments, I thought they were so well designed that I just
could not say "no" to them. I had to think hard though before investing time and money
 as this series contains 12 ornaments and I had never signed up for any series before
 as I love to work on different kind of projects.

Comments: I love this collage series and fell in love with the Mallard duck as it reminded me of all the times
 I have gone hiking and seen some wonderful colorful ducks. I just love spending time walking in the woods
 when all is quiet and so very peaceful. Those are the times when I feel part with nature.

Update 02/22/2010: Two new photos have been added after receiving Mallard Duck Collage from my framer.
