Progress on Police Car Tire

Progress on Police Care - Stoney Creek - Friday, January 13, 2023

Police Car - Stoney Creek Designs

I am stitching a Police Car for my local Police Station.  This is the first tire on the Police Car.  

The Silver Stitches that you see - that is using two strands of the Silver Metallic Glissengloss Thread and one strand of DMC Thread.  The Silver Metallic Threads are very very slippery and it is hard to stitch using these type of threads.  The tire is not done.  The rest of it is stitched in the Silver Metallic Glissengloss Thread using one DMC Thread.  Two Strands of the Glissengloss and one strand of DMC Thread.  

I would like to get this one completely finished by Spring so I can get this framed and give it to my local Police Station.  

I have made a special one for my local Fire Department - The Ambulance Bay - my Local Library - and now one for the Police Station.  

Stitching this on 14 Count White Aida - 2 x 1 Full Cross

Thank you for looking :)

God Bless You

The Alphabet Soup - Counted Cross Stitch Picture

Progress on Alphabet Soup by The Design Connection - Friday, December 2, 2022

The Alphabet Soup

By The Design Connection

28 Count Ivory Jobelan


This is my second oldest wip that I have.  This is slow going due to all of the flowers in the Dead Center of the Pot.  The left side of the Flowers are done.  Now I am stitching the flowers on the right.  

Once I get the Center of this done than the worse part will be done.  

I love this Design and I think its pretty but the Quarter Stitches in this is beyond believable.  

God Bless You
