Another finished project!!

Hi Again,

Just had to take a break to show my finished project .  I joined the Birds of a feather mystery sampler  club and actually finished mine in a timely manner!!!!

My kit was from Attic Needlework using Lakeside Linen and silk threads.  I found if I stitched a little each night it was like a treat from my "work stitching" .  I sounds a lot like procrastination.....but I really was working on Chessie & Me designs at the same time!!

I know you  can't see them in the picture, but there are lots of cat hairs stitched into the piece, since I had a constant lap companion while I was working.  It might have been a gentle reminder to get back to "Chessie bussiness".......this "fun stitching" doesn't pay the bills you know.

Next time, I'll have some more progress on Chessie's Club project to share.  I'm really enjoying putting this "puzzle" together.

Have a great week....try to take a stitch every day!

New Designs for Fall !!!!!

Hi Again,

I know it's been awhile since we've chatted, but as I'm sure with all of you, it's been a crazy summer!!!!!

I have been working on new designs and here are the 3 newest ones to be released as of Aug 1st.......check with your local shops......many of them should have them already!

The first is "The Breath of Autumn" and is a fun "sampler" of all my favorite fall motifs.
The next is "All Hallow's Eve" .  I'ts fairly small and a fun piece to stitch.

And last but not least, is a little fall pincushion and fob that's a quick stitch and will be ready to hold your pins and needles for  the rest of your fall projects or as a great gift for a friend!

It's finally starting to cool down in this area of the country......let's hope we all will get a break soon.......if not, find a cool air conditioned spot and stitch something "fallish".......maybe that will help!!!!! 

Till next time...may you all find time to take a stitch each day!!
