Jack Frost's Tree Farm

It's December 1st ....not many days ahead and so much to do until Christmas!  I know many of you feel like that.  I don't "blog" like I used to but I thought now was a good time to create a post for a number of reasons.

First, thank you all for sharing your inspired finishes throughout the year in the LHN/CCN stitching group on FB and Instagram.  The Hometown Holiday finishes never cease to amaze me.  So much fun!!!  Many of you have finished Farmhouse Christmas differently too....again...very inspirational and wonderful to see.

So you may have seen the new series that will come out in early February.  We are busy printing the first chart in the series.  I am determined to be more prepared this year than I was when Farmhouse Christmas released!!  Let's hope!!


Jack Frost is a kindly old man who runs a little business where folks like us can shop for their favorite tree, have a cup of cocoa and a cookie (baked by Mrs. Frost).  There are seven designs in all with the first being the wide design at the top.  You can see Jack waving from his little house, welcoming one and all to the farm.

Below the large design sit six more that will sit in two rows if stitching them on one piece of fabric.

For the first time since creating series many years ago, I will be showing a likeness of the designs once the first one releases so you can get a better idea of all of the charts along with placement.


The supply list is slowly making it's way to the LHN web site.  If you want trims, they are listed there along with the fabric used.  Threads will show up in a few weeks.

I have one more big holiday design planned for 2019 and then I'm not sure which direction I'll take but maybe something different (unless I hear otherwise!)

Our sweet girl, Gracie just celebrated her 9th birthday!  Her frosty face says she is getting up there but she still has a lot of spunk.  Unfortunately she has had a real tough time with Valley Fever and now Cushings Disease but we are taking really good care of her!!

Gracie

As always, I appreciate your comments and the time you take to spend with me.
Happy Stitching,
Diane

  1. What a great new series. I still love the Hometown Holiday Series. I am slow to stitch them as life seems to get in the way. I have stitched the first four and am stitching the church and plan to finish them this year. Love all your designs.
    Thanks so much. Merry Christmas to you and your family including Gracie.

  9. Love your designs and this is no letdown. Gracie is beautiful and I'll put her on my prayer list. I had to look up Valley Fever-they thought my dog had Cushings but tests said no. She got cancer in 2012, tumor removed, 3 tumors in lymph nodes in 2013. They gave her less than a year. She lived until this past July, age 13 1/2 yrs and I owe it to love and puppy prayers. They called her "The miracle dog" and that she was.

  10. This new Christmas design series is spectacular! I adore these Christmas cuties and I hope they don't end anytime soon, unless it's for a Halloween series or and Easter series, etc. lol I hope there with be a Christmas treat series with a bakery, Christmas candy store, candies, cookies and cakes! The gingerbread man and his wife could be the bakers. The Christmas tree farm is genius! I love it! There could also be a Christmas flower series that would be awesome. Please don't stop! :)

  12. Oh so in love with this series also! And while I am currently stitching Santa’s village, the farmhouse series and glitter village, I’m hopeful you might consider a series that’s a year around Stitch? I am contemplating changing the snow to green on the farmhouse series just so I can have it up all year long . ��.

  18. This looks like another lovely series, Diane. I’ve loved Farmhouse and want to back track to stitch the Hometown (which I have). What’s that saying? So much to stitch; so little time! Give Gracie a hug from rainy, cool Carolinas

  23. I am so excited about the new design! My baby girl, brat, Madison Rose is 10 now. She is a Lhasa and is starting to have trouble jumping up on the first get go - unless super excited. Then boom, she is at that window in a heartbeat.

    Merry Christmas!
