Just about the time we
moved to our present location here at Edgebrook Center, I
began designing under the name -
From Nancy's Needle. I started with cross
stitch charts embellished with hand made, hand painted clay.
I have since discontinued those and have switched to canvas
work designs that use variegated flosses and speciality
fibers. Some of them use the hand made clay buttons.
They are easy and quick to stitch.
I hope you enjoy my designs!
