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.
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.
Gorgeous design and what a great idea!ReplyDelete
Hugs, Kaye xoxox
she is so sweet and so much ME :)ReplyDelete
I was wondering about that, I LOVE it. I have said no more new charts this year,too many waiting to be stitched, BUT I have to have this one. Can't wait for it to ship.ReplyDelete
She is beautiful xReplyDelete
What a great idea! I love it! I think my lady will have to be blonde though :)ReplyDelete
I adore her! What awesome finish ideas.ReplyDelete
I cannot wait to order her, and already have ideas to make it my own.
Diane, you alone can keep me stitching for the rest of my life....I love "My Lady" and look forward to starting her, not to mention the 2012 ornaments.ReplyDelete
I have ideas an my head already, but I would have to wait, see to stitch first. She's beautiful.ReplyDelete
Oh Diane she is lovely. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't wait until the online shops get this one!! I want to stitch her right away. I do dishes and clean windows. lol lol lol Bribery ...well it's worth a try.ReplyDelete
This is a 'must have' pattern - love it! I just wish I had a waist like this lady........ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
I have a TON of ideas for this one! Love it!ReplyDelete
I love her; I believe this is going to be my Mother's Day gift for my mom this year and I'm going to attach one of my grandmas (moms mom) pins I have...:)ReplyDelete
I agree with Jeanne...I wish I had some of her measurements.ReplyDelete
I love how you have designed her, making it so that we can personalize it in that way.
I want to stitch her SOON!!
I LOVE her! Can't wait to get my hands on this one!ReplyDelete
I think she is just wonderful, and I'm sure she will be joining me at my stitching table this year!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Very interesting design. I really like the concept idea. Can't wait to get my hands on this one. I will have to think how I would individualize it for me. The possibilities are to great.ReplyDelete
Thanks and have fun at the upcoming market.

I also couldn't resist to see how beautiful she is!!!!ReplyDelete
She is too cute ... the colors, the fantasy of her skirt and her hair ... I love the version with the cage!ReplyDelete
Too bad there isn't a Michaels overhere, I just love that birdhhouse.ReplyDelete
Elle est merveilleuse, comme toutes vos créations... J'adore, je suis fan!!!!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to order her-ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Thanks Diane! My eyes are getting a little old I guess! The stitching looks so small. :)ReplyDelete
