Churn, Butter, Churn

I am excited to show you my first cross stitch design for 2018. It's called Churn, Butter, Churn and was inspired by an old churning rhyme that women used to sing while churning butter:

                   Churn, butter, churn
                   Come, butter, come.
                   A little bit of butter
                   Is better than none.

I think my Grandmother must have sung something like this as she grew up in a humble log cabin in the Ozarks of Missouri. I know she churned lots and lots of butter, too!!!

The pattern for Churn, Butter, Churn is now available in my Etsy shop. Thanks so much for looking...enjoy this beautiful Sunday afternoon!!!

Happy stitching,

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!
