Belated Valentine's Gift to me from me

Queen of Hearts by Melissa Shirley

I have wanted this for so long.  ABC Stitch Therapy had a big sale so I ordered this lady and her guide.  I love her!  I can't wait to share her with Carolyn Baird this weekend at studio time.  I'll keep you posted!

Patchwork Santa

Patchwork Santa

I stitched Patchwork Santa many years ago.  The stitch guide was created by Carole Lake through The Needle Works in Austin, Texas.  He is still one of my favorites.  There is a Mrs. Claus as well.  If I'm not mistaken they are both still available.  Happy Tuesday!

Madame Camel redressed

Completed first layer with Burmilana

Second layer is three strands of overdyed cotton for the two long stitches
 I like the open nubby look of the wool without the second layer better.

Carefully picked out all the cotton on the right side

More on Madame Camel

Fuzzy second step
Added the overdyed cotton with three strands and two stitches in between the three wool stitches.
