Pincushions Have Arrived..and I'm taking a poll


Happy Weekend!!
I made these all by hand, I crocheted the doilies and flowers, I collected the Seashells, cut, glued, stuffed etc.....HAHA It was fun, I did make these a while ago but they are in the shop this weekend
They are all one of a Kind
And guess what?????
I just finished designing the NEW SAL for this year....
It will Start in September!!
I am so excited because it was so much work and I dont think you can guess what it is exactly.
But I Do have a question?
Do you prefer to stitch on at 14ct Aida/28ct linen, or a 16ct Aida/32ct linen,
I myself prefer a 28ct linen.....It is more enjoyable for me if I can see what I am stitching without using special lights and a huge magnifier.
Please leave me a comment so I can tally up your preference.
Have a great weekend and I will share more next week about the new SAL
WOOWOO!!
I am a happy girl!!
hugs

Jan's Floss-tube and a Quick Stitch Giveaway

I was watching Jan on Floss-Tube this morning and she
 is promoting the hashtag #GiveLoveGetLove.


I thought it would be a good idea to remind ourselves
 of this during the day so I made a quick stitch for this #.

Stitch it up with any color floss you like to match your home, 
office, or sewing room. 
Dont forget to check out Jans Facebook page and FlossTube Too!!

GIVE The Love .....
doesn't mean you'll get it back right away,
 don't loose hope because you will someday :)

Newsletter post about Ruby


The Bible says that
"There is nothing new under the sun,
what was old has become new again" Ecclesiastes 1:9

And so it goes....
my old love for embroidery has become new again!
It feels liberating ....no counting :)
But it is not the end of cross stitch designing
but the beginning of an added line......a new Adventure!!

Now this is where I am going...
I admire rug hookers, the way they can create by choosing their own colors, fibers along with dimensions and techniques.
All this by only looking at a colored image and some have no color guide just their own creative ideas. 

I am creating some kits with this in mind...
Flowers are one of my Loves and that is my plan to start.
The kits will have the fibers I used and stitch suggestion will be given but it will not be a "Step by Step" instruction Kit.
Not a Kit for beginners
but for the Adventuresome.
Stitching freely should be enjoyed and exciting.

The kits will be limited but there will be PDF's available.
If you purchase the PDF keep in mind that you will be choosing your own colors, fibers and stitches.
These designs would also be great for Punch Needle.
I do suggest how many shades you will need for colors....example:
for a flower I might suggest 3 shades.
On the diagram I will tell you where I placed the (L) light, (M) Medium, and (D) dark shades.
Color choice is all up to you. There are so many wonderful thread and fiber companies out there
........so the "World of Fibers" is your oyster!! HAHA!!

They are in the Etsy shop for "Ruby" 
and
"Addison" will be coming soon


Have a Great Week and a Happy Stitching
hugs
donna

to purchase a Fiber Pack the options above.

Another Flower on the way

This one is called "Addison"
after my grand-daughter
This will be available as a PDF for embroidery or punch needle, 
And there will be a limited # of kits.....
I draw these myself onto the linen for you
 so it takes me a little time and 
 I dont want to draw to many.....
it can be boring...I would rather be stitching up new ideas!! HAHA
I will share more info soon, 
Working on the directions and kits
have a good night
hugs
donna

and this is Addison
Oh what a Blessing and Joy

Ruby

Good morning :
I have not been posting as much as I would like :(
Busy stitching away! and cleaning the house and working on taxes !!
Here is a picture of what I have been stitching lately


I decided to make some limited number of Kits for small embroideries.
This one is called "Ruby"...and I LOVE flowers
It is stitched on 18ct linen with Paternayan crewel wool. 
I will have some kits available and also have the design as a 
PDF. This will let you choose your own colors and fibers.
The pattern could also be traced onto Weavers Cloth
 and used for Punch Needle. 
Ruby should be ready in a day or two.
I am already working on another....
This one will be called "Addison" after my grand-daughter
They are so much fun...I love to stitch freely...
its a nice break from counting, HAHA
Have a great day and I will post again soon
hugs

Having a Giveaway

A few days ago when we were having our snow storm, 
 good time for stitching...
I had cross stitched one of the Stitch An Inch Flower Garden flowers...
and since I love dimension,, what could be done for this flower?


And so I added some needle lace, padded satin stitches and french knots


and now to finish it .....


I finished with a wool circle and stuffed it to be a pincushion...My stitching was not the best on the corners...and I wasn't going to give up, so I decided to add some wool leaves to those corners along with some beads and more french knots.


And then the giveaway...
Please leave me a message (Comment) on this post 
and I will add your name to the hat...the drawing will be this
 Sunday the 27th...
good luck
:)
hugs
