Does any like doing counted cross stitch and hardanger embroidery.

Who are your favorite designers?

I love the patterns that are from VictoriaSampler, Just Nan, Lesa Steele and Shepherd's Bush.

LOVE doing hardanger. I am working my way thru' several editions of Burda patterns and have a table cloth pattern that I would love to do but the cost is terrifying.

I do a lot of needlepoint and cross stitch in a wide variety of patterns. Now I make some of my own.

Oh the thought of doing a tablecloth boggles my mind. I don't know if I would ever finish it! They are beautiful but it would take me a loooong time.

I have thought of trying to design something in hardanger but I haven't gotten very far.

I would like to do a band sampler with some drawn and pulled work in it. Something like VictoriaSampler has.

I love cross-stitch! And Mary Engelbreit is my favorite, as in "Life is just a chair of bowlies" or "Get Over it". Very colorful and whimsical. Great for a study, office or child's room.
