My Tart is back:)

My Embroidered Tart
This it the tart I posted about a couple of months ago that I had finished.  I sent it back to Audrey from The French Knot where I bought it in Savannah, GA so she could finish it up.
It is a Raymond Crawford design.  You can find the rest of his designs if you friend him on facebook.
This is my next project that Audrey sent me (she collected all the flosses and ribbons) from her Savannah store.
It is a piece of cake.
Below here is a picture of what it will look like when I finish it.  Check out all the beads!
I can't wait to get it started!


  1. I think they look DELICIOUS and I am also amazed at the workmanship (workwomanship???)


  2. How beautiful!!!!!!! You did an amazing job on your sweet little tart! I know you are itching to get at the next piece. Funny you had to go sooooooooooooo far to find just the right place to buy your goodies. But, I'm thrilled you did since that's where we met. Also, thank you so much for your sweet words of encouragement about Hubby. I can't believe you had heart trouble too!!!! Girl you are way to young to be starting that now!!!!! But, the love & support of friends at a time like this means sooooooooooooooooo much. I am so bumbed about missing our weekend together. But, I am thrilled I still get to go to Kim's event. As you well know those kind of chances aren't cheap. Did I tell you that Michelle from Paper Tales is going to be at my table? Have a great weekend. HUGS! Charlene

  3. Shellllleyyyy!

    I'm so happy to see you enjoying your swaps! You are a swap machine now! haha

  4. Every girl's dream - no calorie pastries!
