Mystery Stitch-A-Long coming soon and a giveaway

It has been a very long winter for me, I have been hibernating and it is time to get out of the cave. 
 I have missed hearing from all of you so I am having a "Mystery Stitch-A-Long" 
It will be in 3 parts and when we are finished with the cross stitching it will be time to embellish. 
I will give you samples of what stitches I embellished with and I would love to see your ideas. 
Just give me the weekend to finish up with more details and I will post info for you. I hope you join me, it has been a long time! 
I also have a giveaway for you, just leave me a comment and I will add your name to the hat for the drawing which will be on Wednesday.
The giveaway will be for the directions and the finishing kit that I made for the bunny cross stitch that was a giveaway on my blog.
Waiting to hear from you

Birds Of A funky Feather #12 YEAH!!!

I just finished "Birds Of A Funky Feather #12". I am so happy, it has been a long process for me. Here is a pic of #12 and a pic of the whole piece. Did you notice how close I got to the edge :(. Shame on me. 
It will not matter to much because I am finishing it as a quilted wall hanging with wool leaves and vines. As soon as I am finished I will give the directions to finish it like mine for you as a PDF for free:)
Enjoy the eye candy for today. 
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Free Design "Happy Spring"

I have a "Happy Spring" design for you. I am sooooo happy spring is here. I just love listening to the birds sing in the morning. I don't even care that they wake me 4:00 am :)
I made this little happy bunny sharing his flowers with you. I have the chart as a PDF for you to stitch and finish as you please. If you would like to finish yours as I did  I have available the directions for finishing with the finishing kit on my Etsy shop. The finishing directions come with 14 color photos to help you along the way. The kit supplies are the wool,  plastic template disc, ( lobster claw, chain, and wool with grommet already put together) and the fabric with the printed words "The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come and the cooing of turtledoves fill the air"  Song of Solomon 2:12.

Just one more quick note I will be teaching at Yankee Cross Stitch in North Hampton NH a workshop on May 17th from 10:30 to 1:30. The cost is $40.00 and includes a choice of 1 of 2 doors that are available.
These doors have been originally hand painted by renowned Maine Artist Kathy Carter in collaboration for our newest product line. These paintings have been printed onto Kona Cotton for embellishment. If you are in the area please join me for this workshop. I would love to meet you and talk stitching.

Have a great day and talk to you again soon, 
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
Gal 5:22
