*Weekend Stitching*

Just wanted to show you a few items I've been working on.
I designed and started stitching this little alphabet sampler this weekend and
hope to attach it to a custom lollipop top hornbook.   I still have to finish 
up stitching it and get it all stained and prim looking.
The colors are olive green, dark brown, gold and a denim blue.
Not sure what color I will paint the hornbook.  Have to wait and see.

I just got the new Blackbird Designs booklet called A Stitcher's Journey and I also treated myself to 3 of Maggie Bonanomi's books.  I thought these little Tulip Pinkeeps (BBD) and matching velvet hearts (MB) would be a quick and fun stitch and they really were.  
Of course, I ended up changing the floss colors to ones I liked better and I even dyed the head pins to match.  I made a light and dark version.  I like the way they turned out and I'm not sure I could pick a favorite.
BTW... the ric rac I used is hand dyed by Nancy of Victorian Motto Sampler Shop
I can tell you first hand it is wonderful and she has some really great colors available.

I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend and I wish everyone a wonderful week.

*Very Excited*

Hello friends.  
I have a new pattern to share with you and I'm very excited.  I have been working on this for a number of weeks, designing,  stitching and getting the pattern ready for print.  And it's finally all done. 
I wanted to design something with Spring in mind.  I think we all LOVE Spring.
The pattern will be available in my Etsy Shop or you may email me.

I will be listing a few finished items Monday night on TDIPT Mercantile.
I hope you can stop by and take a peek. 
Remember, TDIPT is turning 4 and to celebrate we are having a drawing with wonderful prizes.
That's all for now.  Have a fabulous weekend.
