A Freebie and another Peek at the first Pin to be released!!


Thank you so much for stitching my designs!!

Happy Day!!, This is a free design that I gave away long ago in 2008,

 I have revised it to give away today.

The original was made to give to a friend as a Christmas Gift

but I have changed the saying in the back to

 “When This You See Remember Me”


There is a place in the back of this floss tag for you to stitch your initials, along with more small roses, hearts, and the saying.

 I did make mine into a floss tag but you can do whatever you would like with it!!


 BE Creative


The center for the roses and leaves is left blank for you to choose your own floss centers.

The outline for these areas is in the design but the centers are up to you.

I used some over-dyed floss and some different stitches such as eyelets and some over one stitching.


The stitch count is 49 wide by 35 high for one side

28ct over (2)  or 14ct Aida            3.5 x 2.5

32ct over (2)  or 16ct Aida           3 x 2.18


The Dove Pin was from my Dad, He used to wear it on his Coat!! © Part of my Pin Collection


We happy CREATING!!

Blessing and Hugs



And the pins will be going out to shops tomorrow and in the Etsy shop very soon!!

A New Release for the Nashville Needlework Market

Since I am not going to the Nashville Show myself, 

 Yarn Tree will be taking one of my 

new designs called "A Homestead Welcome"

 It has a little Country Feel with my favorite sheep, some extra tall and different trees

also, I added a Primitive wool applique like border, but yes, it is cross stitched. 

I designed mostly with DMC with a couple of Weeks Dye Works added.

They are "Blue Spruce & Gold" 

If you are interest in this new design,

ask your Local Needlework Shop to order it for you from Yarn Tree,

I will not have it available until sometime in April 18th.

The newsletters just went out and this was one of the announcements!!

The Pins will be going in the Mail on Monday to the shops that have ordered some!

I can't wait to share the photos of The Funky Flower ones also...

I love them 💓

2 more PDF's have been added to the list


Since Spring is almost here i thought adding
 "Miss Fiona's Rose Garden"
 to the Etsy shop PDF section would be a good idea!!
I did have a request for "The Nubble" as a PDF, 
so that is now available also, 
I have been stitching up late in the evening 
on a design....I'm excited to share pictures...SOON!!!

Have a great week, I will share more tomorrow

New Product line Coming Out Soon!!

I wanted to introduce you to something new that I will be carrying.

By The Bay “Collector Pins”

Lots of people collect things, especially cross stitch charts,

fabric, and all sorts of fabulous fibers,

along with magnets to secure their needles.

So I thought why not “Pins/Brooches”!!

The first one that is being released is “I Am A Needlesmith”

This cute pin measures 2 ¾  x 1 ¾ , A great size to pin on a jacket or on a stitchers project bag, or maybe start a collection and display them…or to keep with your framed counted cross stitch piece.

The next one for release will be the “Funky Flower Collection”

as a whole design with the white background

…this one will measure 1 ¼ x 1 ¼ inches.

Keep an eye out for them and check with your local Needlework Shop.

They will also be available in the By The Bay Etsy shop .

They will be heading out to shops Feb 14th 


 Just a reminder that if you are looking to see some models in person..
