belt it

I designed these needlepoint belts and they are still going strong over here.  We have a saying around my place- when we need to save a little or lose a little, we say "tighten the belt - dear!" Well, with Thanksgiving upon us and the current state of the economy, times seem to indicate a little saving is in order, tighten that belt or loosen it, whichever suits you or yours.  

I especially loved designing the bottom one, a fire breathing dragon for my Knight.  Life is all about choices, which one would you belt?

What a perfect post today- the day before Thanksgiving and a reminder to wear a belt. LOL...
I love ALL your work so it is very difficult for me to pick one- so I'll take one of each.
Thank you Patricia for touching my heart, adding beauty to my days with your kind words of wisdom and sharing your gift of art!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Patricia, those are fantastic! The fire breathing dragon is by far my favorite as well! Although the one with monkeys is a close second! You're a renaissance woman for that company! Designing and advertising!

Wow! These are wonderful! Great job - I can see why they are selling well.
I wanted to tell you I really liked your comment you left for me the other day "...like me, whirling and creating and trying to keep up with it all..." Perfect!
Happy Thanksgiving

Great belts - especially love the bottom one. After tomorrow afternoon I don't think I'll be able to buckle up a belt. Happy Thanksgiving.

I had no idea that those belts were your design. I am thrilled to know that such a kind hearted person with amazing talent did the creative work! Now, I really want one!

I'm with Heifi -- stretch pants all the way. :-) Though I do love that dragon belt!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank YOU for making my world a little more colorful this year.

Heading over to your sister's now...

These are all great, Patricia, but I would have to pick the lobsters - they are my favorite thing to eat! Happy Thanksgiving! Very thankful for you and your friendship!

I would have to have the monkeys!

These belts are works of art. I love the pirate one on the website!

The dragon is very cool and even Asian inspired. The Lobsters are just fun! I know someone who would adore the monkeys. A lot of work goes into these!
