My version of a Van Gogh Cypress. Was done back when we were trainers for WinGS software... to show that you don't need to know all the bells and whistles.. this design was done using 1 stitch type... satin serial.

Any new projects in 2017 yet? I am in the process of finishing a 7.25 foot wide by 2.5 foot tall panel for a client's tradeshow booth backdrop. Over a million stitches in total but the left side and right side of the three panel piece are the same design, so just flipped. Will send pics when complete.

Tried to get a job for a Church but they hated my pricing. Shame, was a medieval icon that would have been beautiful in thread.

Anything new yet to fill the Summer slowdown?

I have been working on large scale items... 26 plus inches wide or more. (just to knock out most competitors and hopefully knock the socks off potential new clients) go big or go home I guess is the mantra

I have a frog gate and a BaoBob tree as well as a mosaic icon in the works. sure beats watching TV shows that suck your time away. JMO

Surely you guys/gals have projects for fun in the works?

summer slowdown? is that a thing?? i slowed down a little in january i think. and july 4th week was slow, but i've been really busy....thankfully. nothing for fun. there's barely enough time to keep up. especially the last couple of months.

love to see the projects when you get them done!

that really kinda bothers me. I mean you are one of the best and you are only just doing daily work? which 10 years from now you will have NO memory of. just normal orders.

We are up to nearly 500,000 designs.... but my favorites are the 245 that are framed.... less than a quarter of one percent! but I still have them.. and have sold lots of copies of them.

Not complaining... but it is SO nice to be able to make a living off of something you actually have FUN doing.

ok, let me rephrase it...my work IS fun. a lot of the work is normal logos, but i really enjoy doing them. i'll probably never retire. sometimes i do get ones that i get to really play with. did this one yesterday:
