Show And Tell Time

This week I received a few emails from stitchers showing off their finished LJP Design projects, and I thought you'd enjoy seeing them too.

Here's my CHRISTMAS FOREST blackwork pattern, stitched up by Joyce DeMattei in California. Instead of framing her piece, she had it finished as a banner or mini-tapestry hanging. Isn't that clever? I would have never thought of doing that, but I sure like the look of it!

And Susan Allanson, also from California, sent these photos of the four pieces she stitched from my "Playing With Borders" series published in NEEDLEPOINT NOW magazine last year:

I LOVE the way these are all finished, with matching cording to boot! All of these pieces are apprx. 6" x 6" in finished size, so they'll look awfully cute hanging from a drawer pull or doornob, don't you think?

And thanks so much for sharing your work to inspire all of us!
