HAED wishlist...(cross stitch)

" Moonstones" by Ravenscroft

"Mask of Colour II" by Ravenscroft

"Autum Griffin" by Brown

"Mystique" by Brown

"Dragon Skies" by Fenech

Im ready to give my first Heaven and Earth design a try. This will be a new experience for me since I am used to working with 14 count aida, and for this one I will be trying out evenweave.
I have heard from the girls in my stitching group that once you make one of these gorgeous patterns they are very addictive. So, I have been forwarned=)

Im in the process of chosing the color of evenweave for the background and ordering it.
Hopefully, I will soon be working on the first one pictured... "Moonstones" by Ravenscroft.
I found lots of beautiful designs, but these seem to be my first picks for future projects.
Stitching the larger pictures is a goal Im setting for myself..... my stitching projects have had to be put on hold for a while, but I am hoping to at least get one keepsake finished.

Paper Crafted Jewlery Box

This is the top of a paper crafted jewelry box that my daughter made for a friends birthday.
Its hand painted and scrapbooking papers were added. Little what nots decorate the top and sides. These are really fun gifts to make, just be sure to allow enough drying time=)
