Antique Floral 1 & 2

Designs are from Leisure Arts old magazine. I stitched these in June/2000 for myself. They look like four projects because of reflection in my batheroom mirror. I think it's neat. I like the effect.

EMS Garden Alphabets Freebie

"Bless Our Home" What a lovely designs.

I have stitched a few different words using this alhabet.
I add some butterflies, bees and ladybugs.

"HOPE" in Nov/2004, "Bless Our Home" in Jan/2005, two sets of "Open" & "Closed" and "Bath"

I stitched two sets of open & closed signs for friends for their business stores. One set was stitched on 14 count aida with backstitch on each letter.(Sep/2005) A second set was done on 18 count aida without backstitch. Personally, I like it without backstitch.(Mar/2008)

The last one I stitched was a "Bath" sign for the bathroom. I made three of these in Mar/2008.

The Last Supper

I stitched three Last Suppers.
They are all different patterns, with different designs.

The third Last Supper I stitched was in 2002, design is from The Leisure Art leaflet #2768, and I gave it to my sister.

The second Last Supper I stitched was Omnibook Collection, designed by Jeanette Crews. I stitched this in 1996 to replace the one I gave my parents, but my younger brother wanted it, so I gave it to him

The first one I stitched was designed from Stoney Creek Collection. I stitched this in 1991 and made orininally for myself, but when my parents visited to Canada from Korea, my father liked it, so I brought it back home next time I visited Korea.

Jesus in the Garden

I stitched this project, designed by Carol Emer, twice.
I gave the first one to my parents.
This is the second piece, which I stitched in 2003, with some colour changes, red to green and green to purple.
It turned out Ok. I really enjoyed changing the colours.
I gave this one to my younger sister.
