Happy August

I can't believe that August is here already! I'm not sure where this summer has gone but that's ok...Autumn is my favorite time of year and it will be here SOON! Because I am growing a little impatient for pumpkin time to finally arrive, I decided to work on some new pieces for fall in an effort to help speed things along. I think it might actually be working!

I do have one new design ready to show you but more will be coming in the next few weeks. This one is called "Witch's Night"...I hope you like it! It is available over on my Early Work update this month as a finished piece and is also available as a paper pattern in my Etsy shop. I'd be pleased to have you stop by and take a peek if you get the chance.

Wishing you cooler days ahead always...happy stitching!

Autumn Stitching

Happy Sunday to you all! I have been absent from my blog for far too long and do want to apologize. I somehow find myself on Facebook more and more these days and less and less on Blogger. Has anyone else noticed themselves doing the same thing?

I'm having a great stitching summer so far and am currently working on some new projects for fall. Many of you have asked if the autumn pillow tucks I designed last year would ever be available as patterns so I am happy to announce that these are all now ready in my Etsy shop. It's never too early to start stitching pumpkins so here are "Harvest Home", "Pumpkin Patch", and "Halloween Sampler":

I also recently designed a little sampler called "Elizabeth Adams Marking Sampler" that would look perfect mixed in with a bowl of autumn pillow tucks. The pattern for this one is also available in my Etsy shop.

Our weather here in California is sunny and WARM today but I am going to do my best to think about cool autumn days just around the corner...I can't wait!

Happy stitching!

Garden Time

Happy April! I hope most of you are enjoying warmer days by now and will be out working in your gardens soon!!! With that in mind, I wanted to share my newest cross stitch pattern with you..."Garden Time".

I designed this little stitch with thoughts of sunny days, happy flowers, and chirping birds in mind...hope you like it! The paper pattern for "Garden Time"  is now available in my Etsy shop and the finished piece is available over on Early Work this month.

Wishing you all warm and beautiful spring days ahead :)

Happy stitching!

My Newest Design

I have been a little quiet on my blog lately and for that I must apologize. I'm still happily stitching away though so all is well. In fact, I have a new design and finish to share with you. It's called "Old Barn" and is my own original design. The finished pillow tuck is available over at Early Work Mercantile this month if you care to take a peek. I hope you like it!

I am also pleased to announce that I am now selling some of my designs as paper patterns. Many of you have encouraged me to do so and I can't thank you enough for your support. I don't have too many listed just yet but keep checking my Etsy shop to see when more become available.  "Old Barn" is ready now as are "Apple Harvest" and "Abigail Pryor Marking Sampler" from last year. This is a new and exciting venture for me and I am so happy to finally be able to share it with all of you.

Wishing you all a beautiful (and warm) month of March as well as lots of happy stitching!
