With the new year on the way. . . . .

Such a busy time of year!  In addition to working hard to keep the printers running (oh what trouble they are giving us!) and making sure we fill the orders, we are trying to get ready to celebrate Christmas with our family.  

This year just feels different than most, probably because of all that we have been through as a family with Ron.  However, I am happy to announce, Ron is in complete remission and we want to celebrate!

Feeling so blessed. . . . . 


I showed this photo on Facebook.  It's a preview of the February Calendar Girl.  She is so sweet. . . . holding her heart for Valentine's Day.  When possible, each of the girls reflects a season or holiday for the month they represent.  You get the idea.  :)

Many of you follow Vonna's blog (  I do.  She is a dear sweet friend of mine who is so talented that everything she does shows it.  I am so glad I discovered her and her talents a number of years ago.  She has been my finisher and model stitcher ever since.

She made this wonderful necklace for me.  When it arrived I was in awe. . . literally.  It seems she took my little house and transported it into a world of miniatures!  I LOVE it!

Thank you again Vonna!

So here's what's coming for 2014. . . . . . we have the February Calendar Girl, a design called "Hands to Work," and "The Journey" which will be featured in our new line called Tumbleweeds.  You can see the western styled blog I have set up for those patterns. I will always give you the link to them right here when we publish a new one.

Happy Stitching,


  1. Congratulations on the great news about Ron. I just love your design The Journey and the symbolism behind it. I can't wait to see more from Tumbleweeds!

  2. Elation at Ron's being in remission. Still praying for sunny skies and smooth sailing!
    Tumbleweeds. AWESOME! Great idea, girl!
    And #2 being shown....YIKES! Must. Get. Act. Together. !!!!!

  3. So glad Ron is finished his treatment and is cancer free! It's been an unusual year for me as well. I had a lumpectomy with radiation ending in August. I think the whole year just seems a blur. I've had good checkups and so glad to be a survivor!
    Love your cute! Hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!
