Much Better News

Well, after yesterdays shock I pulled myself out of my funk and got busy.
I offered my designs to five distrubutors and two have already gotten back to me with interest. So yes, everyone you were right. it wasn't the end of the world, and i'm sorry I over reacted. :)

Hopefully by the end of the week three of my designs will be available for purchase through these distributors (I'll tell you who they are once the deals go through).

And now I can show you the full finished designs!!!
'Shhh' was stitched on my hand dyed linen. I think I've already told you she is a despiction of my daughter pretending to be a fairy and saying 'Shh, dont' tell the gorwn ups'. The wings and mushroom were added by a talented photo manipulator who used this image on teh cover of his book and then gave me permission to turn it into a cross stitch design.
 The little Mermaid is stitched on 11 count cream aida and is also a depiction of my daughter ... this time as a mermaid. She was dressed up for her 'Pedlars Parade' event at school. I made her the costume (the tail was split at the bottom so she could walk).
As a special thankyou, I'd like to give everyone who has already commented on the last thread a free copy of the mermaid chart.
So Cucki, Miamina and Rhona, if you would like a copy, please send me an email with the title 'gift',

I'll have the Butterly Princess ready to show you tomorrow.
Thanks again everyone, have a lovely stitchy and beady day.
