Merry Christmas

Only one more week until Christmas and I finally have a new pattern to show you. My vision seems to be slowing me down a lot more lately as a result of the eye surgery I had earlier in the year. Hopefully that will get better soon since the doctor says the swelling in my eye is finally starting to go down. Yippee!!!

Merry Christmas is the third design in my little series of Belsnickels and is now available in my Etsy shop as either a PDF file or mailed paper pattern. Hope you like it!!!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is just around the corner and I am excited to show you my latest design. It's called Poinsettia Farm and is available in my Etsy shop if you'd like to stitch one for your holiday decorating. I also want to mention that I now offer both PDF and mailed paper versions of all of my patterns.  Thanks so much!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful and blessed holiday season ahead,

Autumn Sampler

I am excited to show you my latest pattern release called Autumn Sampler. I actually created this design back in 2011 for the Samplermakers Autumn Stitching Challenge. Our task was to design an autumn themed piece using at least two motifs that were graciously provided by Jennie Lynn Schmitt of Appleseed Prim. I chose to use Jennie Lynn's owl and crow motifs and also adapted her house motif to suit my design a little better. I decided to chart it this year after having several people ask about it...the pattern is now available in my Etsy shop if you'd like to stitch one for yourself. 

And speaking of Samplermakers, how cool is it that just as I was working on this old piece from the original group, Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm started a new Samplermakers group on Facebook. I am so happy to see it back and really credit that original autumn challenge way back then for starting me on my primitive designing journey. If you are one Facebook and love samplers, be sure and check it out.

Wishing you all a wonderful week filled with lots of happy stitches!

Happy October

My favorite month of the year is finally here...welcome October!  I'm hoping for cooler weather to arrive soon as well as lots and lots of pumpkins!!!

Here is my last design for Halloween this year called Double Double. I decided to put this one in a frame I purchased from Notforgotten Farm a few years ago and really like how it turned out. The pattern is now available in my Etsy shop if you'd like to stitch one for yourself. Hope you like it!

Wishing you all a beautiful day filled with whatever makes you smile :)
