June Update

Hello and Welcome Friends and thank you for visiting my page!  My name is Nan Lewis.  I'm a cross stitch artist and designer, but love to create with wools and fibers of all kinds.  I hope to show you some special and one of a kind creations each month.  I love to make primitive stitcheries and needfuls.  It is such a joy to see an idea come to reality.  They are all made with love by my own hands.
