Worth the Wait?

Thank you all for your patience while waiting for
this new release and 3rd design in the Bee Series.
It's been one of those weeks, but now it's time
to show you what my busy needle has done.
Here is a sweet little pin roll called
"A Bee's Gathering".
This model was stitched on 32ct R & R Reproductions
Creme Brulee linen using Weeks and
Gentle Art floss,but a DMC conversion
has also been provided.
This is such a handy thing to have.
I just love using mine.

Here is my collage of the Series.

Now the other surprise.
The new sampler design is all framed and is
so beautiful.  Don't you think?
Meet "Ann's Sampler" 

I designed this sampler especially for my dear friend
Ann Robbins of Dyeing to Stitch
and R & R Reproductions. 
Just like Ann, it makes me smile.  I'm so
happy that we are friends.
This is stitched on 32ct Abecedarian Blend
with Weeks and Gentle Art floss.  A DMC
conversion has been provided for this design also.
x x x x
I hope you like the new designs.  They will be
available at your local needlework shop soon
 and I have added them to my Etsy Shop.
x x x x
Thank you for taking time out of your busy
summer to stop by and visit.
Many happy stitches,
~Nan
