I'm a needlework designer, and I love my job. :)
I have a 20 year old son, who is also a needle artist, although he does his work on skin rather than linen. He's a tattoo artist. He's very talented, and I'm very proud of all his hard work.
And I have the absolute most wonderful boyfriend on the face of the planet. We met 10 years ago online, and after 2 1/2 years of talking we decided to make a go of it - and we've never looked back. He's funny, charming, intelligent, hard working, and just an all round great guy. Not to mention he's gorgeous - AND English. :)
... The Learning Sampler, for all those afraid of specialty stitches but
wanting to learn - or just those who like the design and want to stitch
it. This will be an 18 part stitch along design, a small piece released
each month beginning on September 1st, 2013 and running until Feb 28,
2015. You can join at any time during the 18 months. The registration
for this design costs $20 and can be paid via paypal. You can either
message me on Facebook or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you an invoice for
the total. If you want to pay by another method, please contact me and
we can figure something out. Once your payment is received, you will be
invited to join a private Facebook group where the parts will be
uploaded each month - if you're not facebook savvy, I can email the
parts to you each month instead. I'm easy. Please give me at least a day
to respond to emails/payments etc, I will try to process them as
quickly as possible, but sometimes I'm away from the computer stitching.
The design is a pick your own type of idea, you choose your favourite
fabric and thread colours, I'm stitching mine in the reds but there's no
reason you can't do whatever colours your little heart desires! I will
post and/or send out floss and fabric requirements later this week or
when you register, whichever comes first, so you will have lots of time to order materials if you need them.
