War Hog stitched by Jan Sietsema

The war hog artwork by Joe Shawcross. I created this chart in 2014, so it’s been awhile. These projects take a long time to complete. Today though, is the day that we can reveal the stitched version.

The amazing stitcher Jan Sietsema was so nervous about starting out. She had never done a project this big. I think she asked my 4 follow-up questions to buying the chart which made her memorable; she was nervous. Her nerves subsided though after starting, and I haven’t heard a word from her in over a year. She’s been busy.

Here is the resulting final stitched project. (It shows you exactly how accurate the mockups are… if you are questioning those.) There is a little reflection on the glass, but isn’t this just fabulous?

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.
