Happy Spring!

Hoping Everyone is starting to get some days of warmer weather!  Spring has Sprung as they is South Texas.  Yesterday is was in the low 90's and I think we are just about done with cold fronts.  Come September/October after a long hot summer I will be longing for cool weather again.

Today, I wanted to show you my new design and tell you about some other designs that will be coming soon.

Hopefully this one will be releasing on Friday.  It is called "Spring Is Here".  Just a fun little stitch on
32 count Pearled Barley using GAST and WDW threads.

What's next?  I thought it would be fun to do a patriotic themed series.  So I have designed 4 projects that you will be able to put together in a lovely display.  I think you will love how I have chosen to display them.

I am hoping to have a April 1st release on the first project. They will be released April-June so you will have your project complete to display on July 4th.

Please check back as I will be giving sneak peeks of the entire project over the next few weeks.
And..almost forgot to tell you.  I am planning some giveaways during the releases of these projects.

And...thank you to all who ordered Pineapple Sewing Boxes.  I hope you loved them!  I thought I would never finish painting boxes.  It was a happy problem to have... my next love after stitching is painting!   There just might be another one coming down the lane...  maybe around May!  hint hint!

Hope you have a great day...keep stitching!

Welcome Spring?

Hi Everyone!
My latest is called "Welcome Spring"!  I know a lot of my dear friends are still dealing with snow and cold weather but I thought this design might help a little until Spring officially arrives.  It will go out to distributors this week so you should be able to get it very soon.

I finished them as ornaments in an egg shape but you could stitch as little pillows if you'd like.
You will get three designs.  The middle design is a surprise...hint, you will get to practice some specialty stitches.  Not hard though.  I made a pink box for my Easter eggs and since I don't have an ornament tree, I put my stitched egg in there also.

I think I am way behind on updating this I will add my other designs which have already been released in 2018.  

This is Primitive Hearts, a fun and easy stitch! 
And "Friends Gather Here".

In January I was "up to my ears" in painted boxes. Thank you to all the shops who ordered!  I had a great time working on them. I love to paint and kind of experimented with stenciling for a while before I was ready to release my kit.  Had to get the technique down.  It was too cold to go out so painting boxes kept me busy!  Thank you for all the orders... I will do another one soon. I think I have 5 if you didn't get one, let me know.

Hope you are having a great week!

Update on the Flower Gatherer

Well... my naughty Flower Gatherer is all correct now!  She was a handful...after she got her corrections made she didn't want her  picture taken.  I guess she was as embarrassed as I am...
Shop Owners if you already ordered charts, I have corrected ones on the way to Hoffman.  If your order was already sent out, please contact them and they will tell you how to get the corrected charts. It will only effect you if your charts were mailed out Friday.  I sure am sorry this happened and will happily make it right. 

If you have any questions, please email me!
