post signature...is when you go from this:
Completed needlepoint and fabric selections for the finish work to this:
 Finished pillows!
 "Along Came a Spider" has been one of my favorite things to make. It was so much fun to work with many different stitches and fibers. The melted wax on the candle is made with French knots---such an easy way to add dimension. I've left my pillow at Nashville Needleworks. The owner, Connie (not my Connie) is offering a class on this in July.

This is 10 year old Elizabeth's first completed project.
 It's a 10" pillow. I love the tiny, purple ball fringe.

This is Jordan's first completed project. I forgot to tell the girls that it is important to sign and date your work. So, I did it for them.

And then there are these (say that 5 times really fast):
Eight tiny witch's hats. I can appreciate the time that went in to the finish work. All of the braided trim had to be hand made.

I've already assigned each one, but the girls will have to wait until Halloween to see which one they get! I did do one more witch's hat that is a sample piece on display at Nashville Needleworks.

This is just a drop in the bucket of what I have awaiting the finish work. I may have to pick up a part time job to pay for it! Anybody need some organizing?

If you would like to order any of these canvases, just call Nashville Needleworks or let me know and I'll pick it up for you.


  1. Wow, loving the pillows and the hats. And I love the idea of signing and dating the projects too.

  2. Such cute creativity here! And Elizabeth and Jordan did fantastic on their first completions!

  3. You certainly have some talent on display there. Those hats are seriously cute.

  4. Those hats are so cute! Well done on the pillows, the girls did great.
