Early American Garden SALE

Happy Wednesday, it is a hot day here in York Maine
The sun is out and there is not much of a breeze.
I did get my flowers planted yesterday, 
now if I can remember to water them every night before bed, HAHA

I am still working on my Psalm 23 Quaker Style Design
...I hope you like it, I will share another picture this week. 

I just wanted to tell you that I am thankful for all of the
 orders from last week when I had the Blossom Hill Sampler giveaway, 

It is an older design and needed to make a come back
 and what a better way than to give it away for a limited time,
 but some of you missed it so I have added it to the Etsy shop
 as a PDF and at a discounted price for a limited time . 
And one more sale in the shop is "Early American Garden" 
(Pictured at the top of the post)
This is a hard copy chart.
 I designed this one while I was looking at some older
 stitching books with Gardens that were planted in sections
.....they were so beautiful and lots of work to care for.

While I was designing this one I also made an option 
for the trees 
 a lighthouse can be added also instead of the houses in the background. 

Similar to "Early American Garden" 
is design called "Blue Hawaiian Garden"
Another Garden Theme with my own make believe palm trees 
some Hawaiian mountains or maybe volcanoes!!

Have a good rest of the week
 and I am off to get the last of the "Time for Seasons" charts 
folded and ready for shipping next week.

Sale for the Week "Free Blossom Hills" SALE HAS ENDED

Happy Friday,
It is another beautiful day here in Maine. 
It is almost 70 degrees out and the sun is shinning!!
Aww Fresh Air!...what a better way to heal than 
seeing the sun and breathing fresh air.

I am having a SPECIAL in the Etsy shop starting 
today May 15th and ending next Friday May 22nd at midnight .

For every customer between today and then I will be
 emailing over a free PDF chart of 
"Blossom Hills Sampler"

This is a design from 2005. 
I have always loved the 
over-sized flowers and imagined climbing those very large hills .
(in my younger days haha)
This design has a stitch count of 216 x 100
and I have it listed with DMC floss. 
Blossom Hills Sampler

Blossom Hill Sampler Center Section Only

Another thought I had was, that if you wanted to only stitch the 
center house and the 2 very tall flowers
 that would make a wonderful design also

Well if you have any shopping to do please head over to the Etsy shop, 
after your purchase I will email over to you this design for Free this week!!
Happy stitching

Delay in shop orders for SAL

Just a quick note that the next scene for "Time for Seasons" SAL will be a little late for shops.
 I had a problem with the photos and postal service is a little slow for delivery from some places,
 so I am patiently waiting for the photo order to come in, 
As soon as it does I will get them to the post office and to the shops.
 So sorry for any delay for you but these times are a bit different and not what we are use to.
 Please stay safe and keep well, 
hugs donna

Well I hope you all have a safe weekend 
sit in your comfy chair and stitch away,

Praying for you to stay healthy and safe
