On this page, view all the beautiful designs of MY WAY that my clients have completed in their delightful ways.  If you have completed MY WAY and would like to share it, please send me a ."jpeg" format with your permission to have it viewed. Please include comments on how you changed the design using different colours, fibres or stitches to make it your own.   Many have won a prize at their local or state fairs.  Please share your joy!  This design is now available from your local needlework store.

Above, Leigh has stitched MY WAY in soft pretty desert sand colours with blue accents.  She has added a few personal stitches to the design and note, that she has added two extra rows around the outside border creating more interest, drawing your eye into the design.

Note, how well her matting which includes a narrow dark blue mat and the framing, accents both the stitching and design.


Above, Marjorie has completed MY WAY in time to celebrate 2017!

A delightful blend of corals and aquas makes each of the designs pop and stand on their own as well as being an overall group.
You can see the fine stitching she has done in each of her squares!

I look forward to seeing more pieces from you Marjorie!!


Denise did MY WAY in gentle mauves, offering a relaxing view.  She also added three more squares creating more interesting designs to the over all pattern.

Two of these squares are her own and that is not an easy feat to create.  You did a wonderful job, Denise!!

Here is Jennifer's MY WAY.  I love the soft melon colours she has chosen and the fact that it is hanging lenghtwise will make it an excellent piece for in an enterance or hallway to welcome guests.

The matting and framing offers an elegant presentation.

It is important that your framer keeps in mind that is it the stitching that is the focal point.  The framing should always compliment your work.  This is an excellent example of a frame doing just that, making your work look superb!!

Rinda has finished MY WAY which she started in September 2014. It was a cybre class sponsered by CYBERPOINTS which is the virtual guild with ANG.  This course was six months long.  Rinda, do you plan on entering it into this year's State Fair?  Hope you do!!

Margaret did  wonderful job of her MY WAY, in pretty corals, greens and mauves with sand accents!  I just love the colour blends people have put into this design.    This way everyone makes it personally their own to fit into their homes!
Three friends often attend my classes and last year they did MY WAY together with a few others. Lalito is the youngest in the group and has young children, so unfortunately she fell behind.  Her stitching features rich blue and mauve hues. She truly does not have that much more to do before it is complete just like her friends.
When Patsy and her friends met up with me this year they were so proud to show me their completed pieces of MY WAY.  She found the idea of having to make many choices a bit unsettling.  However, with help from me and encouragement from each of her friends the results are Impressive indeed!


Debbie did MY WAY in shades of pink with touches of blue and taupe. Gorgeous!! I have many students who come to class as friends and have a wonderful time in a learning environment.   Some come alone and make new friends for life.  Stitching has a way of joining people together.
