Valentine Finishes

First, I thought you would like to see the cover of my upcoming E-Book:

Elegant Crazy Quilt Seam Treatments

I'm so please with how this came out! I no idea what I was going to do when I took the photo but somehow, it came together perfectly! The project is right on schedule so I still anticipate a release date between 2/7 and 2/10.

I also have a few finishes to share to with you. I made a few Valentine gifts and finally have them all put together. First, these little cellphone pouches:

Umbrella Pouch

Valentine Cellphone Pouch

Next are the little cat dolls that I made for gifts:

2 Cat Dolls

Finally, my Redwork Cat:

Redwork Cat

I also made some little 3-D Valentine tags to go with these:

Valentine Tags

It's a little difficult to see in the photo but these were done by cutting and layering portions of the same image, one on top of the other. In between the layers, are little foam pop-up dots and of course, this was a good excuse to use some glitter. To finish them, I glued them to some gold paper heart doilies and then added a ribbon bow.

I still want to make a nice Valentine card for Scott's grandma using this same technique. I'll share a photo of that with you when I get it completed.

You cover turned out great! The two projects compliment each other beautifully!

Sure hope this project is well-received, and you get lots of orders.

Hi Pam,

Your book looks terrific....can't wait to see inside, too!

I really like your cellphone pouches....it looks like there is a chain or something on the top? And what is the back side like; plain? You are so creative.

I'm homing in on the last bit of part one of the Valentine SAL...was looking at your cupid...I love the way you work blackwork into your designs! They are SO very pretty!

Happy Stitching,

Hello Pam,

I love your work. I am so inspired by women like you making little industries out of your passions. I am an illustrator and I am newly interested in cross-stitch, since becoming a full-time mother. May I ask you what programme you use to do your lovely designs? I sure a Mac and can't seem to find a programme that looks any good. I am assuming you use a pc?

I'd appreciate any advice you can give me, if you have time. Keep up the great work! And good luck with this book. It looks great.
