Happy Sunday-before-Thanksgiving to you all!
As you bake pies, roast veggies and make stuffing this week — remember to sneak in a wee bit of stitching (or a lot!) to celebrate this wonderful holiday. We are ever thankful to a lovely stitcher who sent us her version of “3 French Hens,” our ornament in the 2012 Just CrossStitch Ornament magazine. This unexpected gift is a treasured addition to our ornament collection, as we feather our nest and decorate the home for the holidays.
From our cozy nest to yours . . . we at Primrose Needleworks wish you a mirthful, safe and abundant Thanksgiving.
This summer I embarked on a new cross stitch design that’s a companion piece to the Lincoln Bicentennial Sampler. On July 4, 2012 I channeled my inner Betsy Ross (she’s featured in the thimble above) and started to stitched away.
I stitch all my models, as it helps me design (and frog!) the final product. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I find that fiber colors take on a different look and feel, depending on the fabric color and count. And a-frogging we went! After many tweaks and changes, the design started to take shape.
Here’s a sneak peek of the design, about 25% completed. The piece is finished and it’s being framed right now. We’ll release the chart soon.
Happy stitching to you — isn’t Autumn the perfect stitching season? (Next to Winter, Spring and Summer, of course.)
Hugs to you,
Yay! Our website is finally finished and we’re rarin’ to go. The fall weather has energized us. We have new designs in the works.
