New from LHN - Rosey!!!

Here she is. . . . . . . .Rosey!!!!   She is about the same size as the other two taller girl samplers, The Sampler Lady and My Needle's Work.  I wrote the verse first and designed around it though I had a good idea of what I wanted it to look like before I began.  With all of the red used it could easily be a display piece for Valentine's Day if you stitch quick enough!
My goal is to update our main web site today or tomorrow with supply lists for all of the designs we ship tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitching,

NEW! Hillside Travelers

Houses, horses, swans, rabbits, squirrels . . . . . . . they're all here!

I am so excited to share this design with you.  It is the soon-to-be released "Hillside Travelers". It's funny how the design process sometimes works.  In this case I wrote the verse first then designed around it.  Mom claimed it immediately and asked to stitch it (which she did).

Now and then I have trouble getting animal proportions right and the horses were a bit harder in this design because they didn't have riders on them as in past designs.  So mom came over one day to lend a hand.  She has a good eye for this sort of thing but was finding designing horses with "X's" instead of a pencil a bit difficult too! 
Hillside Travelers
This chart releases closer to the end of the month when it gets into shop.  It ships mid-month along with the ornament I previewed earlier.  I'll post the supply list on the LHN web site next week.  I have one more photo to show you. . . . . . stay tuned!  It's full of flowers and pretty darker scarlets and greens.
