A little more stitching


I've been working on this for a few months....
one of those things you start and put away and move on to something else 
and then remember "Oh Yes, I forgot about YOU"!!
 So I'm almost finished with the small sampler 
and I need to finish the Sewing Machine...maybe a mattress pincushion...
One more thing with the first 150 of these designs going out
 I will include a little scissor charm with the hanger...
I think I'll put mine on the pincushion....
Can't wait to share more and "But God" is finished too
 I just need to iron, frame and make directions....
have a good Monday :)

How I Design and Create a Pattern

 I thought I would share with you "How I Design and Create the Patterns"

Most of the time I scribble down the idea's 

and then draw them out in quick sketches. 

I found these pictures that I had saved in one of my scrap books

...started spring cleaning, good thing I never threw these out :)

These pictures are from the design "Time for Seasons", 

this was originally a Stitch-A-Long 

and has been released in the Etsy shop as a PDF.

It's so funny that I came across these 

and then I realized that

                                              Pam from "Just Keep Stitchin" on Youtube 

is starting to stitch this design for her February 2024 stitching project.

 She actually purchased the last of the Stitch A Long Kits that I had, 

so she has some of the extra's that were included with the Stitch-A-Long.

Here is a link for her Video sharing all of her 24 starts for 2024, 

check it out, she is going to be one busy lady :)

Here we go.......follow the pictures :)

I think the only thing I did not mention is that I usually design with DMC in mind 
and then if I feel I would like to use another floss company I just change it as I go. 

I hope this was interesting for you and you can design too :)
Just be creative
