Busy stitching

 Happy Wednesday!

 I made another sample for the "Stitch & Quilt Textile Fragments"

That's what I am calling this new line of a little bit of cross stitching/embroidery and a bit of quilting along with whatever works, HAHA

This sample has the fabrics laid out a bitt different and the Bee and Bee Skep have been embroidered instead of cross stitched.
I am just waiting for the photos to come in and then the kits will be ready!
It is a limited edition since I only purchased so much fabric and all of the extras to go along with it. 
But I am also working on something else...very similar but it will be a 9 x 9 and not a 5 x 7.
It will have stripes, flowers, and a center saying.....
You'll have to wait for more when I can share a picture which should be by the end of the weekend,
 I Hope
Have a good Day or evening depending on when you read this.
hugs

My 1st Sample :)

Raising and Stitching Chickens!!

 




I have added a couple of oldie designs! to the Etsy shop!
I forgot all about these 2 Farm Yard Friends.
I made them in 2006.
I know of so many people that are raising chickens.
I thought it would be a good idea to re-release these.
To being self sufficient and healthy 😊💗
Happy Farming and stitching!!

Spring Time Funky Flowers are BACK!!

 



Funky Flowers are BACK In TIME for Spring Planting!!
I am sitting here listening to the birds singing their morning praises!!
It is one of the best sounds to me 💓
ONE of my other favorites are FLOWERS
so I thought I would re-introduce some of my Funky Flowers.
There are 24 of them.
The stitch count is 42 x 70 
If stitched on 28ct linen over (2) or 14ct Aida each would measure 3 x 5
This would fit great in a 4 x 6 frame.
I also have quite a few layouts available
 for you if you would like to stitch 3, 12, or 24 flowers as a group.
