Releases....Not one but two

Yep. I'm totally in the Christmas
spirit now!
I've got the new designs all finished
and ready to show you the 

~*~ Merry Winter ~*~  

This design seemed to work perfectly
on a box.   The chart comes with
complete instructions for finishing
it on a 5" paper mache box,
but I think it would look great as 
a pinkeep too.  You know how I
love pinkeeps  : )
This was stitched on 35ct Sheep's Straw
linen by R & R Reproductions and 
trimmed with their Cocoa chenille.
I thought this would be beautiful done
in silks, so it's stitched using Belle Soie
silks in Red Fox, Tortoise Shell, 
Cinnamon Stick and Mudpie.
It's covered in coffee stained
~*~ Victorian Christmas Pinkeeps ~*~
    This chart has instructions for both
pinkeeps.  I love the combination of
them displayed together.
The cross stitched pinkeep is also done
on the 35ct Sheep's Straw linen using 
WDW Aztec Red and GA Piney Woods.
Gosh, I just love the sweet little round
one.  Created with stained mini
checked homespun with a little jingle
bell on top.
I can't wait to display these this
year with our 
other Christmas decorations.

Both of these new patterns are 
now available in my Etsy Shop.

Thank you for taking the time
to visit and for all your wonderful
comments and encouragement.
Happy stitching!

Farm Girl said...

As always each one is a perfect work of art. Do you know I wish I could buy every single thing you have in a pattern. It is just a shame that real life keeps me from stitching as much as I wish I could. :)
Thank you so much, I am just getting to the Christmas design I bought from you last year. :)
