LHN, CCN...and me

I realized today that I've been a model stitcher for Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needleworks for five years. Happy Anniversary to us! Little did I know when I was asked by Diane Williams of LHN to stitch my first model that it would endure all this time. The funny part is I was terrified to do it but also extremely excited. Back then all my stitching had been done on Aida cloth and the first model I did for her, Fruit Gameboards, was on a large count fabric that was easy to handle. From that moment she had me, so when she talked me into trying a new model on linen I took the challenge and the rest is history. To date I've done almost 25 pieces (and even have one in progress...shhh!) I gather my work is pleasing since Diane also recommended me to her daughter, Nikki Leeman of Country Cottage Needleworks and I've done a few model pieces for her too. I was even lucky enough to met Diane and Nikki (and Sharon of Crescent Colors) in person when I made a trip to Arizona. We have forged a good friendship and partnership which I hope will last for many years to come.
