PuNkins 4 SaLe is a whimisical piece that is stitched on 18st linen over 2 threads. It is FAST! The crows are busy selling off the farmer's pumkin crop--at least until the farmer comes home!
We are going to post pictures of the smalls for Days of Creation. We plan to put them on the side bar so that you can see all the pictures of the basket and smalls at one look. If you can't wait...check us out on Facebook and see them there!
We will be in touch!!

We have been busy getting all the orders from the Needlework Show sent and other orders finished. We had a drawing for the free chart of Freedom Park. Mar Will of British Columbia, Canada has won! Congrats!! It should be arriving at her doorstep very soon!
For those of you that have purchased Do Ye Goode, we are putting an enlarged chart of the over 1 area on our webpage. (It should help with the eyes.)
We are rearranging our office--again. There are things everywhere! We keep trying to get more work space our of a 12 x 13 room. Ha! We have exploded into the walk-in closet of the guest room and have taken up half the basement with our boxes for the shows. There has to be a new way. (sigh)
Now where do we put all of the stuff we need that we are working on? We keep these little piles of things on the floor right now--if only we could have a table that take up no room and can hold enough stuff for a 6ft table.
We are working on some special things for the fall. Pumpkins for Sale and a special Halloween design (that hasn't named itself yet) and a very fun Christmas design--Santa's Midnight Flight. We will be posting more about these as the time gets closer and we get them stitched. We also have some very special things in the works that we will be able to talk about in the next couple of weeks. So keep posted.
We are looking for your pictures of our completed designs to post here on the blog. We would like to see what you are doing and to show them off. Email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care and we will be in touch!

The first is Freedom Park. It is the latest in the Down the Lane series. It is the 4th of July in Shepherd's Way and everyone has turned out fro the fireworks display. We get to share in their delight as they gaze at the glittering sky.
Do Ye Goode is a traditional sampler that is fun to stitch with beads and small motifs. The verse is from John Wesley and talks about how we can make a difference in our world by doing good right where we are.
Bunny Umbrella is an adorable little celebration of Spring. The rain is made from tiny seed beads and th bunnies are a so much fun to stitch!
The Strawberry Pyn Cushion is a delightful addition to your sewing basket. It has a spot on the back that make a great place for personalization. It would even make a delightful gift for a dear stitching friend!
We will be in touch!
Keep on Stitching!

We have been very behind in posting and I appologise. Life gets in the way of so many things that we want to do.
We worked nonstop fro the Nashville Trade show. It was a lot of work to get ready but--It was so much fun!! We stayed right near some of our good friends Clara from The Stitching Parlor, Ellen from With My Needle and Louise from Cherished Stitches. We also got to drop by our dear friends Pat and Ann at R & R Reproductions to see their new fabrics (WOW. And then we visited the ladies at JABCO to see the new buttons. Next we drooled over all the new things from Weeks Dye Works, Crescent Colours and A Gentle Art. And not last is all the goodies from Paula at Kelmscott. And that just was the tip of the wonderful things that we saw and the people that we spoke to. There are just too many to name.
Some the designs that we had for Nashville show were
Emiliana's Sewing Case.
It was a lot of fun to stitch and is even more fun to use. The floss is Sampler Threads from A Gentle Art and the linen is from Weeks Dye Works.
Here is the flip side--(inside of the case)
We also have two other kits that we released--The very cute Eggstraordinary Egg. It even comes with your own Ort Chick!
And the small Christmas cookie cutter ornament kit called Jingle Bells. Lots of fun and asmall piece to stitch. As always with our kits the finishing directions are included.
Last but not least for Nashville is the latest in our Simple Gifts series. Simpler Gifts--Joy.
