“I thought I'd write you and tell you that I made the vest from the Designs Magazine. I just finished and have it up at our store (AAA Vacuum and Sewing in Cupertino CA). I'm attaching a picture of the front and back. It sure was a long job but I'm very happy with the end result. My husband is holding the vest for me to take the picture. He is so proud of it also. I've used the Tiny Gardens CD and made 4 shirts also. I'm having so much fun. Thanks again.”
“I fell in love with Cindy's Oriental Reflections Design Book. I combined four designs and enlarged them on a copier and the total scene is 23X55. I added some of my own personality to the pictures by having a theme run through, whereby the oriental girl has been out for a walk to enjoy the scenery and is on her way home up the mountain path. This project took me many hours and several weeks to complete. I had it mounted on a frame an it hangs in my foyer It is a conversation piece when people come for a visit. Thank you.”
“It was fun to do the lace painting. The hardest part was applying the lace to the sweater. Since the lace is not on the bias I had to snip 3 loops in the center of the neck area and then the collar laid beautifully The entire application was done by hand and then the tip of each leaf and the last grape had to be tacked down.”
“Here are some photos of the vest I created using designs from the Secluded Serenity booklet. In August and September of 2003 I took a course at our local fabric store where our teacher, Jean Kidd, guided us through the process of creating our own vest using one of Cindy's books. The entire process was both stimulating and rewarding and equal to any three credit college course! Thanks Cindy for providing the designs for us to trigger our own imaginations.”
“Just thought I would send you a picture of my finished project which I made as a Christmas gift for my uncle. I made the scene from Winter Solstice and stitched it with green Moire to make a decorator pillow for his living room. I am please with it and feel sure that he will be too...”
Diane Coates created this lovely pillow with one of the scenes from Pocket Panache.
“I have had a lot of fun using the ideas in the Secluded Serenity book and putting them together to make a vest. I'm not much into wall hangings but prefer wearable art.”
“I'm new to machine embroidery, just got my Designer I for Christmas. This was my first attempt at a wall hanging (finished dimensions 14 x 20). I fell in love with your Under Sea Fantasy - you have truly captured the feel of the reef with your images. It made me want to grab my SCUBA gear and head south! I added one component (the hammerhead) which wasn't your design though. Your book was extremely informative (especially the list of materials needed) and easy to understand, even for a novice like me. Adding the tulle overlay really gave it a three dimension quality. However, I still have to get my nerve up to try the upside-down stitching!
I just purchased your Winter Solstice, so I'm on to the next project. Thank you for all your beautiful designs - I can't wait to see what you create next.”
My name is Marie from Paragould, AR. I bought the Crochet Ladies [and made] the doily with the four lady's. I am doing them in all colors and going to put them in a quilt for my 4 year old granddaughter, Jessica.
