A Stitcher's Finish

Good evening all ! 
I have a wonderful finish to show you that
was sent to my by my new friend, Paula of 
She has stitched up Bloom Sampler
and wanted it to be a square pillow.
How adorable.  And don't you love her 
star scissors.  I know there are many of you
who are scissor crazy like me.  You can never
have too many. Right?
Well Paula, this turned out lovely and I'm
so glad you enjoyed stitching it. 
Thank you for sharing your finish.
Until next time, Happy Stitching.

New Pattern!

Gosh, I'm so happy to finally share this new
release with you.  It's been a long time coming, 
but here it is at last, "Cottage Charm Sampler".
As you may know, I just love
stitching the alphabet, so as you can 
see it includes one of them :)
I am in love with these flowers too.  They
remind me of lolipops, don't you think?
 The model has been stitched on 32 ct Zweigart 
Vintage Heritage Linen using a combination
of WDW, GA, DMC and the red is a
Victorian Motto Sampler Thread
called Nan's Red.  Made especially for
me by Nancy.  It's a very cool red if I 
do say so myself :)

In other news....I'm proud to say I just
signed with Hoffman Dist. Co.
so my patterns should now be available
at your local needlework shop.
I'm working on 2 other samplers that 
I'm very excited about and hope to 
have them available to you soon.
Thank you for taking time to visit with me
and as always, Happy Stitching!

A Stitcher's Finish

Well, better late than never : ) Right?

Anne sent me this picture a few weeks ago 
and I've been meaning to get this 
wonderful finish posted to my blog.
She has stitched my freebie, Dutch Tulip 
and made it into a lovey pin pillow for her
friend, Melissa.  Lucky Melissa!

It is truly wonderful.  Thank you Anne for stitching
this design.  I love the way it turned out and I'm
sure your friend did too.

I'm sorry I've been so absent from posting lately, 
but I have been working hard in the garden
and doing all the other things that need
to get done around our house.
There is always time for that : )

I have my new release all framed and 
ready to go.  I think it turned out lovely
and I hope to show you it in a few
days, so stay tuned.
Till then, have a wonderful night.
