The Photography is DONE!


YAHOO!!!  I'm working on laying up the covers for the new patterns, and when I'm done they'll be ready to go and I can start working on the "NEW" new designs!
A Gardener's Alphabet is above.  Yes, we have the linen that I used... it's on the website... the mid-shade one.  We don't have all of the floss yet for our floss kits tho....some of it is backordered.

The one below is called Crazy Love.....I know....it's almost too late for Valentines Day, but it's a one day project and hearts are good ALL the time as far as I'm concerned!  It also has some new flowers/new stitch for my patterns.... that gives you 3D flower petals on the forget me nots.  FUN!!


Moving past Valentines Day................to Easter!


All My Eggs In One Basket is above..... Here Comes Peter Cottontail Pillowcase is below.
The eggs and ribbon in the basket are glittered up with silver Sparkles floss from Cosmo.  It really does look like old glass glitter!
The pillowcase (I just love this.......there's something about bunnies with coats!) is crayon tinted.  You can launder it in cold water and mild soap.  You actually wouldn't HAVE to tint it, but I think it makes it look a little like an old storybook picture.



The pillow above is called Sweet Violette.  It's on linen and I used cotton lace for edging it.  VERY old fashioned!


This last one is called Hedgerow Wreath.  Some of my favorite flowers!!!  It also has the 3D cast-on stitch flower petals.  They're not as hard as they look and the directions for them are in the pattern.
I'm trying to get these on the website within 2 weeks....work, work, work!!! LOL!!!
It's about 19 degrees out this morning........Happy Spring!  xox Meg

I made the Halloween and Christmas pillowcases for my granddaughter. I love them! I can't wait to get the Easter pattern. It is so cute. My daughter says I have made some true heirlooms!!

I really like all of the designs but have fallen in love with 'All My Eggs In One basket' and can't wait to get the patten and start stitching on it so I have it all done and finished for Easter.

I love this stitch you are introducing in your new patterns. I learned how to do it a few years ago. I had hoped to participate in a project Plimoth Plantation (Plymouth, MA) was doing - they were replicating a 17th century jacket that is on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum. You can see the blog they kept following their progress and the jacket is breathtaking! (www.plimoth.org - search Embroiderers Story). Looking forward to the patterns coming out.
