The Ornament issue of A Needle Pulling Thread

The Ornament issue of A Needle Pulling Thread is out right now. I designed these little hoop ornaments for the magazine.I am so pleased with these little guys, and the way they are presented in the magazine is so cool.
I give the editors some really rough drawings, and they turn out some lovely line art. In the final version, my kooky doodles are something that people could actually follow and make.Truly, it makes me so happy and proud of myself.
And, I am grateful for the chance to share my ideas. 
In addition, I was asked to create a couple of ornaments to showcase Stitch-N-Steam,  a new interfacing that creates texture in fabrics. I did a little bird with puffy wings and a ruffled hanging heart. This stuff is really fun to play with, and I have done another project for next summer's issue using it.
More on that another time.


  1. Sweet! I'll need to see them in person - for quality assurance purposes, of course ;)

  2. This is so exciting! Congratulations on having some more of your beautiful designs published!

  3. Hi Nancy, congratulations!!!! That is so cool to have your designs published. They look adorable. Sorry to hear about the arthritis diagnosis - hope that your new therapy workout does wonders for it. You need to be able to craft your heart away!
    Take care, Susan
