New 2018 Paintings

I know it's been a long time since I posted. Been really busy, but plan on being more productive on my blog this year. There will be lots of 2017 art and crafts posted throughout the year. However, I will start my my newest paintings this year that are listed in my Etsy shop... The Embellished Artist.



These paintings will be a beginning to a new series for this year. 
Enjoy and have a Happy New Year!

Round Robin #37

Hello readers... It's slow going posting on my blog these days. I have so much to post but little time to do so.

Here is this months Round Robin. The theme was Seascape, so I stitched a sailboat. Took me only a few hours to stitch. Fun...

Year of the Rooster

I joined a swap to cross stitch a rooster for my swap partner in honor of the Chinese New Year... Year of the Rooster. I snagged a chart from Corinne's blog, Passion Broderie 77. I absolutely love this rooster. Then I searched online and in my personal collection for the alphabet and numbers that would fit the style of pattern. This is what I came up with.
