May Releases

I am so excited to share with you what I've been designing the last few months.
As you may know, I'm doing a series of candle board designs. It's a collaboration with Kelmscott Designs. "Sunbird" is the 2nd in the series.  The design was again inspired by an old butter mold and I was just loved the carving of the bird and the sun.
It's mounted on a pre-painted reproduction candle board, which was custom made for the design. Stitched on 32ct Vintage Exemplar from Lakeside Linens. 
Each piece in the series will be stitched on this count and color. It's trimmed with Colonial Tea chenille from Dames of the Needle.

"Leaping Stag" was the 1st in the series and was released this past January.

My other release is pretty special to me. It's called "Garden Peacock" Pin box.  This little design was created especially for this box and the Prim Stitchers Society Retreat that I just attended in April.  This is stitched on 32ct Dirty Ewe linen by Dames of the Needle.  
These sweet boxes were created by my dear friend, Patti Nicolosi of by My Hand Needlewerks, just for us stitchers.  They are perfect for a few sewing necessities and re about 3 1/2" sq.  If you'd like to purchase a pin box from Patti, please contact her at annnico65@yahoo.com.  I know she will be happy to create one for you.




All of these designs can be purchased from your favorite needlework shop or directly from me in my Etsy Shop.  Thank you all for your continued suppor and as always, 
  Happy Stitching! ~Nan
