Another Fall Release!

Yes, I'm in such a Fall mood!
My friend Elizabeth of Dames of the Needle/From the Cauldronsurprised me with a new linen color she had dyed up.   
It was so beautiful, I felt inspired to create a new design.  The color is called North Beach Brown and the Fall floss colors work so well on it.

This new design is called "Edgar's Manor".  I wanted a needlebook I could take out and use in the Fall.  Edgar would, of course, live in a black house, but he has a wonderful geometric pathway in front of the doorway.  It would not be complete without his Raven's to watch over it. 



The inside has a pocket in a chestnut colored wool by Blackberry Primitives and a piece of the linen is used for holding pins and needles.
I used the 32ct linen for this and it's stitched with overdyed and DMC floss.  Here are the colors used....The Gentle Art, Tarnished Gold and Carriage Black. WDW, Grasshopper and DMC 640.

The charts are on there way to my Distributor and will be released this Friday, Sept 18th.

I am leaving tomorrow to spend a few days with friends down in Maryland and then we all travel to Lori's Gathering at Notforgotten Farm.  I'm so excited to see new and old friends there.
Last year was so much fun and this year should be even better.
My etsy shop will be closed until my return next week.

I hope you like what I've designed.  It was a fun and fast stitch...my favorite kind.  Hope to see you at the Gathering on Saturday....If you see me, please stop and say hello:)
Smiles and as always, Happy Stitching!
