Time To Share

I cant believe its been a week since my last post!!. I have been busy stitching away.

I have a photo of one of my new Funky Flowers to share with you. I am releasing the next 2 as sisters. There will be 2 flowers in 1 chart pack along with a bonus chart. The names are "Funky Flower Laura & Jennifer" after 2 of my cousins. I stitched "Laura" over (1) to be different and gave her a Weeks Dye Works floss for the background. I also was playing with the frames and have a wool background for one of them and then I laid the other frame on top. I like the way it looks.
The tiny frame is by Olde Colonial Designs and I will have them make more for me. I just love the over (1) look with a continental stitch.


Laura & Jennifer

My next share for you is "Stitch An Inch Fall" I did not have time to stitch the whole thing but I did manage to stitch one block over 2 on 28ct. So it is a 2x2 design and I have it in another Olde Colonial Design frame. I have these for sale on my Etsy shop for finishing your designs.
Also added on Etsy are some plain bronze pendants that you can finish yourself.

Block #1

I am busy working on "Oak Hill" that will have wool leaves in the scene. OOOO!!! I love it.

Just want to tell everyone that Olde Colonial Designs will have a trunk show of mine at Celebration of Needlework Midwest in St Louis Missouri from Sept 15 - 18,  So if you are in that area check it out.

Also updated are some pictures of Yankee Cross Stitch, we just did a little fall decorating.
Have a wonderful day and if anyone knows who Sherri is please have her email me. I have not been able to send her the raffle prize because she had no link to her name. If I do not hear from her by next Thursday I will raffle it off again. :)))

    very pretty and vintage!

  3. I love the new flowers so fall looking I love your finishes, Thank-you for beautiful designs.

  4. Really like the Autum stitch an inch, well really I like several of them. I like the panoramic sense of the pieces all stitched together. Seeing the whispy clouds illuminated by the bright moon tonight really puts me in the mood for the all season, my favorite time of year.

    Keep on stitching, P.J.

  5. Stitching and the shop are looking great!!!

  6. Stitch an inch Fall is perfect! I'm thinking of doing it as one piece. Then I can swap it for my Nantucket Summer sampler for the season. Of course, you know what that means.... then I need a winter piece to swap out for fall!
    I love the new Funky Flowers especially Jennifer with those cool colours!

  7. Oooh inch of fall is SO colorful! Love it!

  8. heh...good work... all yr works good... :)
