Good morning all! Hope you all had a pleasant weekend. I'd ask if any of you enjoyed the game yesterday, but it was a real snoozer for those of us who aren't die hard fans of one of the two teams involved.
Anyways, I'm hard at work assembling patterns here. The cats are supervising, but I don't let them get too close, or else I'd have sheets of paper and plastic bags skittering everywhere! I wanted to share my other two original designs with you this morning. First up we have Springtime on Hodge Hill, which was inspired by my love of designs with houses on them, and by the flowers on the Harriet Hodges antique (repro to be shared later this week).
This design is stitched on 35 count Linen line by Weeks Dye works using overdyed cottons from Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Arts. It's another small design, and stitches up pretty quickly.
And finally this morning we have Yield Not. After charting my reproduction sampler with the Adam and Eve on it, I decided I wanted a smaller Adam and Eve piece, and this design is the result. It is stitched on 40 count Vintage Exemplar Linen from Lakeside Linens using overdyed cotton threads from Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Arts.
If you like what you see here, please let your local needlework shop know about these designs. And please share about these patterns with your friends too! I can be reached for wholesale orders at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can contact my mother at Cherished Stitches.
Don't forget to enter my giveaway, which can be found in this post. Til next time, stay warm, and I hope you have plenty of time to be creative!
