New Designs Coming Friday!

Well, I have been busier than ever with getting ready for my Fall and Halloween releases.
I'm happy to share with you the two new designs I'll be releasing on Friday!

"Ever So Grateful" was beautifully stitched by my model stitcher, Cindy Ruchman Cabrey,
and I am indeed ever so grateful for that.  The model was stitched on 32ct Dirty Ewe linen and trimmed in Canned Pumpkin pompom both by Dames of the Needle. The flosses used in this design are Gentle Art, Wood Trail, Pumpkin Pie, Mustard Seed and WDW Pamlico.


"Halloween Menagerie" was stitched on 32ct Peeps Lost Sheep linen by Dames of the Needle. Instructions are included to create the drum and wrap.  The flosses used in this design are Gentle Art, Garden Gate, Onyx, Moss, Gingersnap, and WDW Palomino.



I also released "Common Thread Stitcher's Mat" last week and never got the chance to blog about it.  This was originally a club design, but is now available as a chart.



Believe it or not...I'm stitching another Halloween design that I just created.  I love it so much that I had to start on it right away and hope to have it out in a few weeks.

Hope you like what I've designed and are ready for some Autumn stitching!
As always, thank you so much for your support of this craft that I so dearly love.
Smiles, ~Nan

Nan, I'm somewhat new to cross-stitching so forgive me if this is a dumb question. What is a stitcher's mat used for? It looks as if there is a cushioned area under the bow that could be used as a needle minder or pinkeep, but do the other squares have designated purposes other than visual charm (which they have in abundance)?

I love your primitive designs and as soon as I catch up a bit I will be ordering some. I've favorited a couple of the "Beggar's" designs in your Etsy shop.

Such beautiful designs, Nan. I believe "Ever so Grateful" is my favorite as I'm a lover of Thanksgiving and all things fall.
