Margaret Lee & Bob
Precious & Jack

I am Margaret Lee and this is my wonderful husband Bob.  We live in the beautiful state of Maryland. I have also lived in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri and Virgina.


Designs From Margaret Lee is a small, home based counted thread design business.  I design, stitch, photograph, print and package each chart and kit I design.  Recently I've 'renovated' my charts and created PDFs so they can accessed as an INSTANT DIGITAL DOWNLOAD at my etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/MargaretLeeNeedleArt


Along my path of designing, I developed a few needlework tools including The Clear View Thread/Stitch Counters I & II and Needle Park Avenue.


As an  artist, I enjoy designing needlework and  painting pet portraits in oil and watercolor.  I also knit and have been renovating a 1923 house in Parkville and a reposed/auctioned house in Middle River, MD.  Weddo as much of the work we can ourselves from demolition to re-creation -  I even use power tools! 

My Little buddies...


Jack is my  little chihuahua, the brown and white sweetie on the left.  She is my best buddy and nearly constant companion.  Precious recently crossed the Rainbow Bridge and is dearly missed.
