By APRIL BAIL

Something as common as a spilled glass of milk can be a minor incident or a catastrophe, depending on what else has happened that day.

The picture is called Nobody’s Perfect, and amen to that! The drawing is of a fantastic creature, part dog, part hog. part giraffe, part zebra and part lion It helps us remember that we all have our faults.

should be several inches longer and wider than the design, to allow for framing
In addition to the animal, transfer the words "Nobody’s Perfect" onto the fabric.
I used only two simple embroidery stitches: a satin stitch for solid areas and a split stitch for outlines I prefer cotton embroidery floss, and use two to four strands at a time The satin stitch is just a series of short, straight stitches worked side by side, to fill in an open area The split stitch is a vanation on a running back stitch To work the split stitch, bring your needle up from the wrong side of the fabric, and insert it back down again 1M to 14 inch farther along the line you are covering Bring the needle back up again in the middle of the first stitch, splitting the strands of floss Continue in this manner, forming an outline along the line you are covering You can fill in your picture with solid embroidery or fill in the details only, leaving the background areas open Press the finished picture on the wrong side. and wrap the edges to the back of a piece of cardboard for framing

Cincinnnati artists Dianne Davis and Kathy Wirth have been on a fast track since their stitchery business went national in mid-1985 "We had painted together in various classes," explains Dianne, who has four children aged 17 to 23. "We were known in our art club as the two crazy people who would try anything Any challenge, anything crazy or weird, we tried it " In fact, their craziness evolved into KD Artistry, a company specializing in stitchery designs and kits especially for counted cross stitch, with more than 800 accounts throughout the United States. Canada and Australia
"A friend who owned a needlework shop told Kathy her customers were always looking for someone to graph their homes for needlepoint," Dianne recalls
"Kathy did one or two and said This is easy’ and asked me to help her." One thing led to another and the women began creating and selling original designs of Cincinnati landmarks to work in counted cross stitch
Now, 2 5 years later. Dianne says: "The Cincinnati designs are dear to our hearts, but they are just a drop rn
the bucket" to their total national business picture The turning point occurred when the two women joined forces with wildlife artist and fellow Cincinnatian Charley Harper. Harper, an artist-humonst-naturalist, describes his work as "minimal realism ... flat, hard edged and simple And funny.”
It is a style which works well with that of Dianne and Kathy. "Our designs are artistic, clean, sleek, with a touch of humor." says Dianne. "Not cutesy country, as is the trend.” "It would have been easier if we did buckets and bams." Kathy agrees
The two women knew Charley Harper was interested in having his work adapted for needlework. "We drafted a small design before we even went to see his, to show him the quality of our work.” explains Dianne "We weren’t even sure he knew what counted cross stitch is.” Harper was pleased with their work and now. two years later, KD Artistry is about to launch its seventh Charley Harper book Is this all part of a brilliantly conceived master plan0 "Heavens no. We didn t expect it at all,” says Kathy, a mother of two children aged
