Come Look At My Brand New Blog Design!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I am so excited to post today because as you can see...I have a brand new redesigned blog!  This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time.  When I look at it now I think it truly reflects me as a stitcher.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

To celebrate my new blog I will be doing a few give-a-ways next week.  Please keep checking back and hopefully you will be a winner of a few of my designs!

Before I forget....because I'm so crazy about my new blog...that's all I can think about, I wanted to post my 7th design in my L'il Abby's series.  The title is "Gentleness".  For those of you that are stitching the series as one... we are down to the final three.  Gentleness has been released and is available at your local needlework store  The final two will be released in mid to late July.  Send me pictures, I would truly love to see your work or your interpretation of my designs.  I love seeing how some of you change the colors to match your d├ęcor or colors that are your favorite.

I am also working on a design that will be similar to Home is Where You Hang Your Needlework and Bless this Home that I think you will want to add to your collection, especially if you have been stitching these.  I'll give you a sneak peak in a few days.

I also have a limited addition kit that I am planning to send to the St. Charles Market in August.  I have been working very hard on this kit to make it just perfect.  One hint...it is a pin pillow and the kit comes with hand dyed (by me) linen, overdyed vintage ribbon (overdyed by me) and decorative stick pin for your pillow (made by me) and all the overdyed thread needed to stitch the design.  It has been a labor of love putting this kit together but I have enjoyed every minute of it.  I will keep you posted on where and when you will be able to get it.

Things are warming up here in Texas...afternoons are too hot to do much of anything but stay in doors and stitch.  So I guess that is what I will do this weekend...finish up some pending designs.
I hope you have a great weekend!  I will close with a picture of "Gentleness" and a reminder to check back next week for my blog make-over give away!

Happy Stitching!
