Kelly Clark's "Mackenzie Childs" Pear

I can't remember the name of this pear but it captures the style of Makenzie Childs to me.  This is another pear from the series at The French Knot in Fort Worth.  I changed the stitches somewhat with the help of Amy Bunger and Carolyn Baird.  Amy came up with the thread for the leaves during one of my Rent Amy Days.  Carolyn found the perfect silk ribbon to create the flowers.  I love this one.

I hope it is a wonderful and blessed day for you and yours!  I have so much to be thankful for.  I have the best husband and beautiful happy children plus my extended family.    I have many many wonderful friends that add so much to my life.  My stitching and my stitching friends are a source of great joy to me.  I am one lucky girl!

Kelly Clark Snowflake Pear

This is another pear from the Kelly Clark pear series at The French Knot in Fort Worth.  I, of course, changed it to suit me.  The background is done entirely in the T-stitch and I beaded all the snowflakes.

Kelly Clark Christmas Tree Pear

This is another pear from the series I got from The French Knot in Fort Worth.  I changed some of the stitches and I love it.  That perfect ribbon for it is from The Ribbonry.  It's a ribbon store inside Chaparral in Houston.  It's Carolyn Baird's and she has the cutest ribbons!  

Bow on!

Kelly Clark Christmas Stocking Pear

I stitched many of these pears when The French Knot in Fort Worth had them as a series.  I changed a lot of the stitches from the guide .  I think this one turned out so cute.

Sodding the Front Lawn at The Hart Hunt

I am stitching the front yard using a wide angle eyelet stitch from my stitch guide by Amy Bunger.  It creates a lot of texture.  I am using two strands of overdyed cotton floss for the green to yellow/green color.  I will switch to one strand of yellow cotton floss for the yellow parts.  I like it.

The canvas is called the Hart Hunt from Painted Pony Needlepoint Designs.  The stitch guide and thread selections are by Amy Bunger at Amy's Golden Strand.
