All Stitched

Yep...All stitched and stained up a bit of vintage chenille for the trim.
Now on to the finishing.
My goal is to release this by month's end so everyone has 
some time to get it stitched.
Smiles and happy stitching my friends!

A Beggar's Sneak Peek :)

Well, two more days of stitching and this is how it looks now. 
I was so happy to start stitching with the red....LOL.  
This is the next design in the Beggars series.  
I've been asked by many to do a Patriotic version and so I could not resist. 

Meet the beginnings of Beggar's 4th.

Looking to get this finished up and released by the end of the month or beginning of May......fingers crossed.  Hope it gives you a smile like it does me.  ~Nan

Here's A Peek

Happy day all! 
As I mentioned in my last post, I have a new design in the works that I needed 
get stitching on it ASAP.  I'm happy to say it's moving along very nicely and I don't want to put it down.
Here's a sneak of what I have stitched so far....
Look kind of familiar?  I'm excited to get this completed!

Well the weather has finally made a turn for the better here in Philly.
Loving the warmth and the blooms.   Our daffs are just as happy with the change.

Wishing you all a beautiful day!
Thank you again.  I am always touched and uplifted by the support
and friendship you send my way.
Smiles, ~Nan

New Week

I have been keeping busy designing and stitching.  I've started this new design, but I will be putting it to the side for now.  

I have another design I have to start immediately.  It's been planned for awhile and now time is of the essence:)  But I'm sure I'll return to this in time.

As I mentioned in my last post, I joined the Prim Stitchers Society on facebook.  It has now grown to over 550 members.  It's really a wonderful, fun and friendly bunch.  There is so much inspiration and creativity to be found each day when I log on.
Again, here is the link if you'd like to become a member.

Congratulations to Lorrie W. who was the winner of the box I created for the 1st Prim Stitchers Society give-a-way. 

Hope to be back soon to show you a sneak of the new design I'm about to start.....

Prim Stitchers Society

There's a new prim stitching group on facebook.  Just for those of us who love to stitch Primitive cross stitch designs.  It's called Prim Stitchers Society in case you're interested in joining.  It was started by Terri of Dixie Samplar and I was very excited to join the group as soon as she told me about it.  It's a great bunch of really fun and friendly stitchers and we all seem to be just loving this group.

I created a freebie chart just for the prim stitchers society members!  But, you can only get it if you become a member.

I ended up making this into a fabic covered box, which is now up as a giveaway to one of the members of the group.  The winner of the drawing will be announced this Sunday.
Here's the link.

Here's how to join.
To be added as a member to the Prim Stitchers Society, please go to the group page and click the "join group" button. Ignore the "closed" status...that just means that nonmembers are unable to see our posts. Once Terri receives the notification, she will add you and you should see the group on your FB page.  I recommend that all members read the membership guidelines under the "files" section at the top of the page.
  Hope to see you there!
Smiles, ~Nan

Needle in hand

It's always a special day for me when I put the first stitches in a new design.   I love to see it come to life with linen and thread.  I'll be away for a few days and this will be keep me company:)

Wishing you lots of stitching time too!
Smiles, ~Nan
