Design Previews

I'm still waiting for that new grandbaby to arrive but when he does I'll  busy for a while  so that's why I decided to post the upcoming previews really early.  The first one is from "Singing the Blues".  My mom stitched it in Crescent Colours Belle Soie which is their line of silk.  The thread has beautiful color variation and the silk just seems to pop off of the fabric.  You can also stitch it in their cotton thread and we have provided a conversion for you.

 The second design is called "Liberty Belles" and has three sweet little ladies in it to stitch.  When we feature the full photo you'll see that there is a wonderful pillow that the design is mounted to.  Mary Kathryn at Impie, Hattie and Bea has made a mounting pillow for the finish just for those of you who don't really like to sew.  No preview is available just yet. . . . . .you'll have to wait until mid-month to see it. 

These two projects are just right for summer take-alongs and we have packaged them in our smalled format that we call "A Piece of Cake!"

Thanks for stopping by!
