Happy Thanksgiving and an Harbor update

Happy Wednesday to all of you :)
I have been busy getting ready for Harbor Haven :)
I have made a list of the participating shops to date that might be able to help you with fabric and fibers, and if you want to join and receive a hard copy please reach out to them :)
I have the PDF files and shops have the Hard Copies

There is a Facebook Page that Mo has graciously started for me for Harbor Haven!
and she also has a Facebook Page for herself and her fibers :)

Thank you for reading my blog post and I am off to make a meat pie and cocktail meatballs...we have been invited to my daughters boyfriends parent house this year and it is the first time in about 35 years I am not making the whole meal :)
Have SAFE TRAVELS and a BLESSED Holiday!!

Harbor Haven Sign-Ups !!

“Harbor Haven “
Stitch A Long
Dear Needlesmith:

Sign-ups will start Thursday Nov 2nd, 2017, and the “Harbor Haven” Stitch A Long will begin on Dec 10th, 2017

This is a 12 month Stitch A Long

The cost will be $8.00 for each of the 12 sections or a total of $96.00 for the year.

You can pay with Paypal and I can sign you up for automatic bills every month which will be on the 5th of every month or if you prefer to pay all at once I can send you A Paypal invoice for the total for the year…
I can also accept checks…just email me about that J

If you sign up for the Stitch A Long you are being given the discounted price of $8.00 for each section…These 12 designs will be released in the future but will have a retail of $10.00 for each section at that time…..

Another Special for Signing Up will be the individual border that can be stitched around each section if you choose to stitch individual scenes….this will be FREE …It is similar to “Serenity Harbor”….

I will need this information to sign you up:
Mailing Address
Paypal email address:
Email address for PDF’s:
Do you prefer a monthly bill or pay at once?:

These charts that you receive from me will be in a PDF format…if you prefer hard copies please see if your local Cross Stitch Shop would like to participate in the Stitch A Long!

My THANK YOU GIFT at the end of the year for participating in the full program will be a Free personalized chart….something similar to “I Am A Needlesmith” but different J
After you sign up I will send you the PDF file with all of the information you will need for floss suggestions, fabric sizes, and floss usage……

Thank you so much for considering joining us in the “Harbor Haven” Stitch A Long

Harbor Haven Full Nautical Scene

I have uploaded an image of the whole Nautical Scene for "Harbor Haven"
Sign ups will start tomorrow and I will post in the morning what I will need for you to sign up..
I tried to see if I could add a border around the whole design like Serenity Harbor but the Stitch Program is giving me an error!! I guess it doesn't want it any larger :(

I will try again later :)

Getting There !!!!

Early Monday morning a huge hurricane like storm went by and we lost power for 2 days L…So finally the computer is back up and I am doing work on Harbor Haven…Just finishing up some details. I should have more the final information by this evening, I will post the full and final design picture then..So basically I need the full day to finish it all… and we will get this SAL going….
Thank you for your patience …who would have ever known I would end up in the hospital and then lose power too…..never know what a day will bring!!
