New project

I have something new in the works that I'm really excited about, so here is a sneak peek at what I'm working on...... It all came about when a young woman recently showed me a needle art project her sister had made for her. It shows the back of the three sisters' heads. One of the girls is a redhead, one a brunette and the other is blonde. I just fell in love with this idea. The hair is actually tangible and free flowing. I found the designer and have ordered the patterns. Now I'm working on making this project into kits for you. The photo with the two girls is the original pattern. The other two show you what you can do with this design in order to make it more personal. I hope to have these ready by the time our newsletter comes out on the first. Hope you like them as much as I do.
