Happy To Be Back

Oh my goodness!!! I haven't posted on my blog for such a long time and for that I must apologize. It has been a challenging year to say the least. My Mom passed away late last March and as an only child, it was left to me to settle all of her affairs. I thankfully had family to help me as I am pretty sure I couldn't have done it without them...what an extremely difficult thing it was to do. And then late last June I had eye surgery to repair a macular hole in my left eye. I am still recovering from that one but my vision is getting better every day.

Happily I have finally started to stitch again after a year of hardly picking up my needle much at all. I am excited to show you a new design I just completed and have now listed in my Etsy Shop. It is called Lucy Tucker's Gift and is a sweet little sampler for all of you who love redwork. I hope you like it!

So happy to be back posting on my blog...I've missed you all!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are looking forward to the upcoming Christmas season. I haven't had as much time as I'd like to create new designs as my Mom has had some health problems these past few months but I did manage to finish at least one. It is called "Christmastime" and I am really happy how it turned out. The pattern is now available in my Etsy shop if you'd like to stitch one for yourself.

Thanks so much!

Happy Halloween Cross Stitch

This is the time of year when thoughts of Halloween begin to fill my mind more and more. I can't wait for the cooler days of autumn to finally arrive and for pumpkin season to be in full swing once more! And anticipation of that most special night of the year...I want to share with you my latest cross stitch design called "Happy Halloween".

The pattern for this "witchy" stitch is now available in my Etsy shop if you'd like to make one for yourself or for a friend who loves Halloween.

Thanks so much and...happy stitching!!!

Schoolhouse Sampler

I love visiting old one-room schoolhouses whenever I come across them and imagine that many of you do, too. My fascination with these wonderful old buildings inspired my most recent design called  "Schoolhouse Sampler". I hope you like it!

The pattern for this little sampler is available in my Etsy shop for those of you who might want to stitch one for yourself. I had a lot of fun designing this one and hope you will enjoy stitching it as well.

Happy stitching!
