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.

If you read every post in this column, you’ll know that I say the same thing in each one. It’s my favorite day when I get to see a completed project. The posts are months apart, so it’s no joke. Each one happens on my new favorite day. This wonderful stitching is from Jamie Butler. […]
I say this every time, but it’s so true. Getting a finish from one of my charts makes my day and makes my week, this one is a free chart which made today so special because it’s out of the blue. I don’t know when some of my custom charts will be stitched and finished. […]

This is a chart that I actually charted for myself. My husband is a forester, so I stitched this to go on his wall with his diplomas. There is a pretty major error in the stitching versus the chart. You will be able to find it. It’s my stitching not the chart. You can stitch […]

You won’t believe it, but this is Erika Mason’s first cross stitch project and I do believe she’s now hooked on the hobby. This is an image that wasn’t the easiest to create into a custom chart. The colors are very similar from the background to the skin tone of the family, so it took […]
