Needle-worked items made from the heart to be cherished for years to come!

I am so happy to be a part of this group of talented artisans!

My name is Nicole Amaro and I am from Massachusetts.  I love everything that involves needles, stitching, rug hooking, punch needle... you name it!  I have had a finishing services business since 2012 where I help fellow stitchers turn their handiworks into heirlooms. Ornaments, pillows, pin drums, stand-ups, hornbooks <-- too many options to list.

Feel free to email me.  (keep in mind I am on the east coast so if I'm sleeping, I'll email you ASAP --- sales will be on a first come/first served basis. )  All sales are final; no refunds.

This listing is for a darling cross stitched piece mounted on a grey wooden plaque. The design is a portion of one by With Thy Needle, and uses a mixture of specialty hand-dyed flosses and DMC cotton. It is stitched on a piece of linen, framed with rickrack, and mounted using brass furniture tacks. It has a natural jute cording on the back for hanging. The piece measures 8" x 8". Please email me if you are interested in purchasing this piece. I am unable to take orders for this item at this time. Thank you for looking and be sure to check out the other items this month!

This item is a cross stitched piece in a vintage black frame. I found the frame while "treasure hunting" in Ogunquit, Maine last fall. The pattern is "Bethia Fenshaw 1861" and was designed by Whilst Iris Naps Designs. I stitched it on 40 ct. linen using 2 over 2 threads of a green hand-dyed cotton floss, then spritzed with black walnut crystals dye to give it an even more primitive look. The frame is 5 3/4" x 7 3/4" and would look lovely tucked on a shelf or hung on the wall. I am asking $65 for this -- that price includes first class shipping with tracking information. Please email me if you are interested, keeping in mind I am on the east coast so if it's past my bedtime I'll get back to you first thing in the morning. :)
