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.

I got the idea for this finish from the Quaker Pinwheels or Pinballs that were made long ago. This has been stitched with overdyed floss on an gingham linen. It's backed with a coordinating brown reproductionl fabric. The edges are covered with soft brown twill and matching brown and white glass headpins have been added. Measures 4"H by 3"W and has long ties for hanging. Comes signed and dated. Travel fare $5.50.
These drum features a cross stitch wreath motif design I created just for the piece. They have been hand stitched on a linen in over dyed floss of green and red and I've added little x's on all the seams. These drum are firmly stuffed with wood shaving and crushed walnut shells. I've used a few different reproduction fabrics on the sides and I've added pins and bone buttons for added interest. Measures approx 4 1/2" across by 2 1/2"H. Comes signed and dated. Priority travel fare is $7.00. Please indicate your preference A or B in your email. Thank you.
I created this hanging pouch from a heavy woven fabric. I cross stitched a vase of holly and hand stitched on all the patches. I also added a crocheted mini doily. The back is a dark green and black reproduction fabric and it has hemp loops on each end for hanging. Pouch measures 10 3/4" wide by 9 1/2" high. Comes signed and dated. Priority travel fare is $6.00. DOES NOT include the greenery or cards. Click on the picture for additional views. ***November***
