Prim Sisters Club Reveal

I am super excited that I can finally show you the design and finish I've created for my first Prim Sisters Club kit, hosted by Country Sampler Spring Green.  I'm very please and happy to be designing for this wonderful shop.  I always try to make my club pieces special and I hope you think it is too.
Each kit includes the chart, overdyed linen and floss, 2 coordinating fabrics, the stained bone ring and detailed finishing instructions so you that can create this gathered pocket hanging and matching pyn pillow.

If you'd like to join the 2015 Prim Sisters Club, please give Jeanne and the girls at Country Sampler a call.  Linda from The Pinkeep will be next up in a few months with her design and we'd love to have you join the stitching fun.

Happy Stitching my friends!

Shamrock Finish

Today I finished my Lucky Shamrocks stitch into a little thread holder pocket.  I think I'll add a wire hanger.  This was a quick and easy finish. I love the flannel ticking and antique lace I found in my stash.
It was a good day to stay in a work on finishing.  Very cold and we have supposedly lots of snow headed our way.  I see a few stitching snow days on the horizon.  
Have a great week all........and stay safe!

Change of Plans:(

So I was supposed to be stitching with a bunch of friends down in Maryland today, but we all thought it best not to travel in the snow.  I stitched this morning anyway......My hubby said, instead of a Stitch A Long, I was having a Stitch A Lone.....he is so darn cute.  Working on my Lucky Freebie and have a sweet finish planned.  All my freebies can be found in the freebie patterns tab under my header photo:)

I hope you are all having a good day and are staying safe and warm.
Happy Stitching, ~Nan

Release Day!

Happy Friday my fellow stitch friends......You have all been very patient and it's much appreciated.  There is a lot of thought and work that go into a release,
but I'm as ready as I can be:)
First up....
"Beggar's Valentine"

This is the 4th design in this series.
Stitched on 32ct Vintage Maple Sugar by Lakeside Linen with The Gentle Art floss. 
This is trimmed in a brand new color chenille called Colonial Tea from Dames of the Needle/From the Cauldron.  Elizabeth has matched it perfectly, just for this design.
Many thanks to her for coming to my aid on this one.

Next is......

"Wynter Peacocks"

This stitcher's pocket was stitched on 32ct linen using The Gentle Art floss.
Along with cross stitch this design also has the Algerian eye stitch.

Both of these will be on the Hoffman and Norden Distributors update today and will be in your local needlework shop very soon.  Some already have it.
This will also be available in my Etsy shop.

I want to thank you all for your kind comments, emails and facebook pm's
along with your loyal support of my designs.
You keep me inspired and constantly stitching!
Smiles, ~ Nan
