My Latest Finish


I hope you have all been keeping well and are staying cool. I just finished another wonderful design by Pineberry Lane and wanted to share it here. It is called "Lydia Broome Sampler" and I absolutely love this one. Wendy's designs are so much fun to stitch and always turn out so primitive looking. This one is for sale in my Etsy shop but if it doesn't sell, I will be more than happy to keep it!

Happy stitching!

Welcome July


Happy July! I just updated my Early Work Mercantile page with two new pillow tucks. The first one is a sweet new design by Country Rustic Primitives called "Toy Soldier Pillow Tuck". This one was SO much fun to stitch and I am really pleased with how it turned out.



The second piece is a little marking sampler pillow I created myself using 19th century alphabet motifs. It is called "Abigail Pryor Pillow Tuck".  I don't really consider myself too much of a cross stitch designer but I love putting these little pillows together using old alphabet charts. I hope you like it :)

Happy stitching!

Welcome June



I have really been enjoying working in my garden for the last couple of weeks and decided to stitch a couple of little garden pinkeeps/pillow tucks for my Early Work Mercantile update this month. The first one is a new Country Rustic Primitives design called "Bee Garden Pillow Tuck" and the second is a wonderful new design by Primitive Stitchin called "Birds and Bees Pillow Tuck". I love the beehives and red flowers on each one and am very pleased with how they turned out.  Both are stuffed with freshly dried lavender buds and oh do they smell heavenly! I hope you like them, too!!!

Happy stitching!

Tansy~Yarrow~Rue


Happy weekend, everyone! I just wanted to share my latest finish with you called "Tansy~Yarrow~Rue".  I actually completed the stitching on this Pineberry Lane design last year but set it aside until I could find the perfect frame. Well...I thought I finally found that long sought after frame last week but it turned out to be just a smidge too small. So...rather than wait any longer to finish this piece, I decided to make it into a pillow tuck. I like how it turned out and decided to keep the frame to use on another design sometime soon.

I hope you all have been keeping well and are enjoying lovely spring weather where you live. We have been baking in Southern California but I've heard it's supposed to start cooling down in the next couple of days. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that relief will be here soon and am already counting the days until autumn arrives! Pumpkin season can't get here soon enough for me!!!

Happy stitching!
