New Designs for Fall 2020!

Simple Gifts-O Holy Night

Simple Gifts-O Holy Night is our newest Quaker inspired design ready just in time for Christmas. Started as companion piece to Simple Gifts-Christmas, this new design echoes the the meaning and the symbols of Christmas.  We hope that you will enjoy stitching this as much as we did! 

A Spooky Biscornu

This was so much fun to stitch! Complete with bats, spiders, cats, ghosts and skeletons, this oversized (6 inches square) will be a spooky addition to all of your stitching smalls! Happy Halloween!

Just a couple of other notes for your information- our blog has "updated"  it's settings etc.  So there are some options that we used to have on our blog that we no longer have available.  The most interesting one is that we no longer get notifications when people make comments on our page.  Since we are not posting everyday, we don't always see them  until much later.  Please if you have a question then email us.  It is listed under our profile.  (praiseworthystch@bellsouth.net)  We always love hearing from you!! So please let us know if we can help!  We also are on Facebook and Instagram under Praiseworthy Stitches.  

Thank you for all of your support.  It means the world to us to know that we can bring joy in to your lives.  Take care and God bless you.
Happy Stitching!

Missing Symbol for December Snow

Hi all!

We just discovered that we left out the symbol for School House Red on our design December Snow.  It should be a filled in heart. ❤ We hope that this will clear everything up for you.

We are so sorry for the confusion! Thank you for supporting our designs.  We couldn't do this without you.
