Pals Name Tree by M Designs.  This another exchange project due in July.  I still need to finish adding the beads and figure out how to finish it.  It's stitched on 32 count Purple Punch linen with 1 strand of floss over 1 thread.

My first feeble attempt at Hardanger.  This was a Challange class from India Grace Designs Yahoo group.  If I had have more information this project would have turned out better.  I am glad I made this and tried Hardanger, I just don't like my choice of fabric & threads.  Plus when I trimmed the outside I cut several threads so now I can't use it.  But at least I tried it and I am satisifed with that.

This is my second Biscornu.  The design is from Dinky Dyes and it stitched with Dinky Dyes silk flosses on 32 count linen.
I Love this.

This is my first Biscornu, it was fun and easy to make.  A Biscornu is a fancy word for pin cushion.  The pattern is a SanMan Valentine design.

This is an exchange project.  I can't tell who it's for but She'll get it in July and I'll edit this page.
This is Sue Hillis's A Good Friend and it's stitched on 32 count Smoky Haze Opalescent fabric by Enchanted Fabrics with DMC floss.  I am going to finish it as a flat fold so she can secretly tuck it away.

This is another first try project, it's a PinKeep finish.  The pattern is from Dragonfly Stitches and it was part of a monthly Stitching Challange in Feburary on a board I belong to.  It is stitched with Dragon Floss.
