Pillow art by Cathie Jo and Sandy

I have more fun stuff to tell you about but , before I do .....
click on the pillow so you can see it large !

I have a new friend that I met through Etsy . Her name is Cathie Jo .
She is a really sweet and funny lady.
She makes beautiful embroidered items . Her work is excellent !
We have worked out an agreement
and now she is licensed to embroider some of my images . This is a pillow she embroidered for her Etsy shop . Isn't it pretty ????
Embroidering takes a long time .... one stitch at a time . I think she does wonderful embroidery .

I'm really excited about this .
Please take a look at her shop .

She has also taken a few of my other drawings and framed them and there is a ballerina on a tea towel too .. They are in her Etsy shop now .
AND she will be adding MORE ... so please go back to her shop often .

Maybe you remember this drawing from my earlier post .
[ August 18 , 2008 post ]
so .... please go visit Cathie Jo's shop
and tell us if you like this new stuff we are doing !!!!!!!
We would both LOVE to hear from you >>>>>>
Thank you
If you have a few moments .... please read the comments . I love them all . and there is a truly wonderful one from Cathie's husband . [ what a husband !!!!]
don't hold your breath for MY husband to write ! Oh ... today is our anniversary
34 years . I love you Michael

I think you both (Cathie Jo and Sandy) are extremely talented, creative, and neat individuals. (I am just a bit biased since I am the lucky guy that gets to call himself Cathie Jo's husband!) I have seen the pillow first hand and watched as it went from bare thread to something that will become part of someone's family and passed down through generations. I was fortunate enough to get to sit late into the evening and visit with Cath as she stiched away on this project that brought her a lot of joy. (It's evident that she as a great appreciation for Sandy's art and values their new friendship.) There's a real positive vibe that surrounds this project and it was fun for me to get to witness it's coming together. I also can't wait to see what you guys come up with next!

cathie jo said...

sandy - WHAT FUN!
to get to see the pillow on your blog!
to stitch up your enchanted drawings!
to find hearts in my shop from your friends and fans of your art!
to have a new friend in you!
all of it is a great BIG honor.

thank you ALL for the really wonderful comments! of course, sandy's drawings would look nice in mud fingerpainting - but i'm glad you like the embroidery!

How wonderful Sandy. Your gorgeous art rendered so beautifully in Cathie's embroidery. Her items are quite amazing. I wish you both the very best of luck...oh and by the way does the lovely Darin have a brother in England by any chance....hah hah. He is one sweet husband.

Oh and before I forget a massive congratulations to you and your husband on your anniversary.
