Wendy Jane Creations began 40 years ago with Baby Bibs made of Counted Cross Stitch fabric, and sold in needlework stores to be stitched on by the customers.
From there we created needlework kits, decorative house and yard flags, English Smocked children’s clothing, bookmarks for Counted Cross Stitch to machine embroidered aprons, dish towels and back full circle to machine embroidered baby bibs, and baby items. There have been many products along the way, and we are grateful for your support and patronage over the years.
We are proud to be able to give back to the community through donations of goods (Surry Arts Council, Arts Ball, Festival of Trees, Civic Club events etc.) and each purchase of a Mount Airy Bear’s Flag supports Vincent’s Legacy, Kindness Rocks.
Thank you for your years of supporting our creativity and patronage.
Every year these ornaments are hung on our family Christmas Tree, and every year decorating and un-decorating, takes me down memory lane.
The ornaments began with the birth of our first child, and a way to showcase a new Counted Cross Stitch product that we were selling in our retail store in the early 1980’s. It was a Lucite Ornament, that you could add cross titch to one side and a photograph to the other.
The photo of “Baby Melanie” with her father, and a piece of Counted Cross Stitch with “Thank Heaven for Little Girls 1980” on the back (pictured) started a tradition that I am so thankful for.
Each year adds special memories for each of our daughters and milestones for our family, including sweet 16 birthdays, graduating from High School and College, family vacations, candid shots and even the family pets. Each ornament including cross stitch or embroidery with the year and important events on the other side. After 40 years of marriage, this year our tree was almost all pictures, and a few prized store bought ornaments. As the years have passed, sometimes finding the ball ornaments that started it all, or the Lucite disks, has been harder than others. With the added embroidery machines, we now have an assortment of ornaments, which are always made in triplicate, to share with our daughters.
Because after all, a photograph is just a pause button on life.
Every now and then you find an embroidery design that just speaks to you.
Enough said! (Thank you Urban Threads Embroidery Designs)

GFWC – The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of other through volunteer service.
I have been honored to be a member of GFWC through my local clubs since 1985. Each April 24th we celebration the founding of our national organization which began in 1890.
Our motto is “Living the Volunter Spirit” which I have embroidered and used inside the cover of these notebooks.
GFWC clubs and clubwomen are the fabric that binds not only the Federation, but the communities in which they live and work. By Living the Volunteer Spirit, GFWC clubwomen transform lives each day, not simply with monetary donations, but with hands-on tangible projects that provide immediate impact.
Over the years I have been allowed to make items incorporating the GFWC logo. In honor of of Federation Day here are a few, starting with the GFWC Yard flag, displayed at the GFWC Headquarters in Washinton, DC after a snow storm.
GFWC Girlfriends are just the best! I have made lifelong frends locally, across North Carolina and the nation!
Using GFWC T-shirts, these wall hangings and pillows were used as fundraising items at the GFWC International Convention in Memphis in 2015
This year at the 126th Annual Convention a basket of GFWC goodies will be donated once again for the silent auction.

I love these designs by Urban Threads. They are perfect for some of my friends, and maybe yours as well.
These dish towel pillows were gifts the the GFWC-NC District for 2014-2016 and 2016-2018 District Presdients and Junior Directors! The pillows on the left say “Out of my way world, I’ve got my Sassy Pants on today”, and the pillows on the right say “Be Fearless”
I love this saying: Don’t Tell Me What To Do! How many times have I heard that (and said it!) Shown here on a khaki dish towel pillow ($18.00 other colors always available). This design also looks great on aprons.
Someone’s cat had to poto bomb this picture.
