Cyn’s Finished Projects

I don’t have pic­tures of all the projects I’ve done—I wish I did! I gave most of them away as gifts. I’m work­ing on get­ting images of those gift­ed to my imme­di­ate fam­i­ly mem­bers, but I gave some of them to for­mer in-laws or ex-SOs with whom I am not in touch. If you’ve ever received a stitched piece from me and want to send me a pho­to­graph of it, I’d be most grateful! 

I have a ter­ri­ble habit of not fram­ing any of the pieces I keep for myself. I just nev­er get around to spend­ing the mon­ey, so they all sit around in stor­age. Of course, the absolute joy is in mak­ing them, but it would be nice to dis­play them some­day. They will take up a lot of wall space when I do!

I took many of these pic­tures using a bor­rowed and new-to-me dig­i­tal cam­era or a dinky old web­cam. I laid the pieces on a very dark brown wood dress­er. I did­n’t have the best light­ing for most of them, either. They weren’t all lying com­plete­ly flat because e I had­n’t framed them yet. But darn it, I final­ly have some pictures! 

This page was tak­ing a long time to load, and it was com­plete­ly inac­ces­si­ble for mobile users, so I’ve had to split every­thing up into sep­a­rate pages.

I don’t have pho­tos of the fol­low­ing pieces, but I do have images from the design books so that you can get an idea of how they looked. I’d much pre­fer hav­ing pho­tos of what I did, and if I can get them I will add them. 

I don’t have any kind of image for the fol­low­ing projects, but of course I’d like to have some if any of the own­ers ever hap­pen across this site.

  • In Decem­ber 2001 I did two oth­er Drag­on Dreams designs — Those Who Teach for my sis­ter, and Guide the Hands for my broth­er. I know I got pic­tures of them and I can’t find them!
  • I did at least three small Mill Hill bead­ed and stitched pins, giv­en to Mom, Katie, and a friend’s ex-wife. I’ve also done lots and lots of small Christ­mas orna­ments over the years. I think my broth­er has an entire set of Mill Hill bead­ed ted­dy-bear orna­ments I made for him when he first got out on his own.
  • I did a wed­ding sam­pler for my sis­ter and her hus­band when they mar­ried in 1999. She also has a small paper­weight I did with a rain­bow on it and a larg­er piece with her name and rain­bows. She had actu­al­ly start­ed that last one her­self and last­ed all of maybe 30 min­utes before she decid­ed that cross-stitch was not for her.
  • I know I’ve done one piece about ski­ing for my broth­er. I thought there was some­thing else, but my mem­o­ry is fail­ing me.
  • My first hus­band has a sil­ly lit­tle plas­tic can­vas (I think) piece that I did as a gift for his grad­u­a­tion in June 1983. I made stock­ings and a tree skirt for Scott and me, but they’re long gone. I used some of Dale Bur­det­t’s ted­dy bear designs and vari­a­tions thereof.
  • Madame Gustafson, one of my French teach­ers from high school, had a rose and lat­tice piece that I did from the Hearts and Rain­bows leaflet from Bette Ash­ley Designs.
