Can I tempt you with these?

Well the fall weather is here-- for most, chilly breeze, cold nights even snow flurries!!  To others, this is fall, but it is still 78 degrees and its just another day in Paradise :)  I am excited to tease you with a few new pics of an amazing new sampler I had the pleasure of reproducing.  The original sampler is owned by a very very special friend who happens to be the Great Great Great Grandson.   Can you just imagine the thrill of just being asked??  Having this sampler hung in his home now for decades, I was over the moon with excitement when I was handed this treasure to care for, for the greater part of this year.   Are you tempted yet?!!!
She completed her masterpiece in the year 1800, when she was just at the tender age of 10.
Can you imagine??!!  I had the pleasure of sitting with a 10 year old today who was as wild as a bull in an arena.  I cant imagine too many 10 year old's in today's society with the patience this young gal had. 
So many details to her sampler, its hard not to be curious right?  Look at this floral arrangement!  Look at all those birds!!!!!!  Love the birds!!!
What about this stag??!!!!  Oh my is it fabulous!!  I am so excited to share the full sampler with you next week, when I formally introduce her in all of her glory :)  I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend, and have much stitching success!!  And I will see you all next week!

Teachers Love Teaching

Here is my first original design dedicated to all the hardworking Teachers in our lives. 
Designed specifically for a very special teacher in my life- my sister.   An outstanding woman and amazing teacher.  I couldn't think of a better way to thank her for all the hard work she does.  Realizing also that we are blessed with teachers in our lives each and every day.   Have you thanked a teacher today?!


This pattern is full cross with a few key backstitching and french knots for detailing.  I chose to stitch the model on 32ct Vintage Lentil Lakeside with WDW, GA and Crescent colors.  I encourage you to make color changes to make it your own!  I look forward to seeing progress pics!

Sneak peak of new release!!

It is that time of year again with all the interweb a buzz with new releases for the St Charles Market!  I am excited to release my new pattern coming to shops near you soon!
Using 32ct Vintage Lentil Lakeside linen with WDW, GA and Crescent color overdyed cottons, this ORIGINAL design was created to recognize special folks in all of our lives; Teachers. 
Teachers are in our lives each and every day and although they might not have the specific title and go to a school daily, we are surrounded by them.  Loved ones, friends, co-workers, random people you meet.  We are all teachers and this is a fun way to share my thanks with them!
I hope you enjoy this latest release, I will share a full pic shortly!!
