New Design

It's been a while since I last posted something on my poor neglected blog. I've been dealing with some health issues and hopefully I am on the up side and will be able to get back to more stitching.

My new design...Fruit of the Spirit...Love will be out in a few weeks.  It has just gone to the framer. Here's a little peak.
I started working on this one way back in the Fall, put it down and then kept picking it up and reworking it.  I am hoping to continue this as a series until I complete all of the Fruits of the Spirit.
I decided when I started designing that I would only design pieces that had a upbeat, positive message.
I have also had a request to design some Christmas ornaments, so that will be next on my list.  I still have my antique sampler that I am reproducing....but it is taking a little longer than I expected.  There are several specialty stitches and the stitching tiny, tiny, tiny!  Which I promise you I will not be stitching my sampler that small.  It is a beautiful sampler though and was done my a young girl named Mary Pilgrim.
Anyway, I hope you are having a great day.  Down here in South Texas, we are having some very unseasonable weather.  Our usual sunshine and warm (hot) weather has turned gray and cool.  It is very unusual to have 50 and 60 degree weather here in April.  We are all trying to enjoy it because we know we are in for a long hot summer!
Wishing you the best day!
