Busy Day in the Workroom

Got this all finished up into a bag.  Love combining cross stitch and my new found love....wool.
Found this really cool brown paper covered wire that I used for the hanger.

Happy weekend my friends!

A Surprise Release

I thought this would be the perfect time for this original club design, 
 I know there are a lot of stitch friends that have patiently awaited for this to be available.

"Holiday Patchwork"

This is stitched on 32ct linen using Gentle Art Mulberry, Picnic Basket, Straw Bonnet and WDW Moss.

These charts are now at my distributors for the Friday update and will be available in my Etsy shop that day also.

Thank you for your continued support of my designs and for all your friendships.
Smiles and happy stitching,

On my work table....

On my work table...what will it be?
Loving the little cross stitched acorns.

Nice drive on the way to the Post Office today... The cows were in the lower field of our neighborhood farm.  Fox Chase Farm is the only surviving working farm in Philadlelphia and I love having it right around the corner from us.

Happy Day to you all.....~Nan

Fun With Wool

Well, fun with both cross stitch and a chance to play some this afternoon in my beloved studio.  Love days like this.

Gourd Decorating

I got my gourd fix on at Days Gone By Creations in Lititz PA a few weeks ago when I went there with friends. I love the way they all look on top of our pie safe.

My friend Tee picked up this box of Autumn goodness for me. I'll use these cool stems next year on some wool/velvet pumpkins. Thanks again Tee.

I'm doing a little thing on Facebook called "Today's thought....."
I know many of my followers are not on FB, so I thought I'd share them here.
(especially for my friend Robin B.)

Today's thought........"Never let success go to your head and never let failure go to your heart".
