"My Lady"

So many of you have asked about the photo of the lady in the corner of my blog header. . . . . .she is a new pattern that we ship with our other patterns on Monday next week.  Let me tell you about her and what makes her so special. . . . . 

I love mixed media styled artwork.  It's fun, a bit eclectic and very individual to the person creating it.  So I thought of a way for each of you to create a personalized design that you could place in an easel and call your own.  What you get in the package is the pattern for the lady. While you are stitching her, imagine what you would like to see her holding on a length of ribbon or thread.  Would it be a miniature portrait of someone you love?  Would it be a spectacular collection of odd buttons?  Or maybe an an antique brooch.  The choice is completely your own.  

My Lady
I bought two packs of jewelry finds at Michael's to show you a few options.  The inset photo shows the second way I set her up.  Just follow the directions on the pattern for attachment. . . .it's easy! 


I hope you'll love this pattern as much as I do.  

Happy Stitching,
Diane

  11. What a fantastic and creative idea!I love that little brown rose in the inset. I have seen cross stitches that incorporate old buttons, but the handmade jewelry sections of the craft stores would take it to a different level!

  14. I agree with Jeanne...I wish I had some of her measurements.
    I love how you have designed her, making it so that we can personalize it in that way.

  17. She is beautiful, what a pretty face! Very creative way to finish a chart. Can't wait to add this to my first tier stash. I am already beginning to think about what I could have her hold. I am also thinking about changing her hair and dress colors. Thanks for all your beautiful designs.

  27. Diane---this is such a lovely design. I am going to be purchasing this very soon. Question, was this stiched over 1 thread? I see where the pattern calls for 28ct linen but in looking at your picture, it seems the stitching is very small. Was your model stitched over 1 on 28ct or over 2 on a higher ct linen? Thanks so much! I'd like to stitch as is.

  28. Laura. . . .no, she is stitched over two making her a substantial piece. However she can certainly be stitched over one. Just use jewelry sized charms for her to hold.

  29. Thanks Diane! My eyes are getting a little old I guess! The stitching looks so small. :)
