Candy Dieser – Custom Sunset Completion

There is nothing I love more than seeing some charts that I created come to completion. It truly improves my day when I see these wonderful projects come all the way full circle.

This is one of those projects that is beyond my expectation of results. The hardest accomplishment in creating cross stitch charts is creating a sky that doesn’t look all blotchy. Color fades are complex. You don’t want it to fade too fast or too slow, and some stitchers don’t want to have confetti areas in there and so each piece with a sky has its complexities. For this piece the sky was upmost important and so beautiful. Anyways… look at this beauty. It might just make your day better.

It’s hard to believe this can get better, but I’m also going to share this. Candy is going to continue stitching beautiful skies. I just created her next project, so you can see what she’s working on now.

I’m so excited… I can’t wait to see this one as well, so my day is completely made today. You can’t wipe the smile off my face today.


We LOVE our stitchers!

Blue Unicorn by Karen Nazarewych

I love this chart. I created this chart for me and it’s hanging downstairs in my daughter’s room as one of her prized possessions. It was a hard decision for me to even offer it up for sale because it is kind of a personal chart. I decided others should enjoy it though, so here […]

Man and Dog Sleeping by Susan Schober

Here is an amazing finish and fast. This is a chart that I did for Susan in October. It’s not huge that was one of her criteria, which also made charting it complicated to create. I had to work hard to not make this man look pink (He has really quite pink skin tone.) while […]

Maria Felix Custom Completion

Wow! Another project done. This is the stitching of Maria Felix. She wanted the headdress flowers accented with colors and the rest of image without colors. This is a fairly small piece too, so a lot of details in a small area. (These are the most difficult pieces to chart.) It turned out amazing.
