Hometown Holiday - a Duo!

I am so excited to share a photo of cube #2 with you. . . . "Main Street Station."  I placed it with "My House", the first design that will be getting into shops soon.  This is not the photo of the pattern cover, just a peek at what they look like together.

"Caroling Quartet" is the third design and will be followed by a Sweet Shop.  I'm stitching that one now!  I'm thinking some ceramic trees places around the cubes  would look really nice.  :)

We will ship "Main Street Station" in the middle of March.

New Designs for February

This is such a fun month of releases!  The second Little Sheep Virtue pattern is called "Love" and features two sheep.  I think you can see how the designs change, the sheep change, the heart(s) in the design change and so on as we move along.  "Love" was the last model mom stitched so it is a really special to me.

Next is the new series, Hometown Holiday featuring the design called "My House."  We've included an alphabet for personalizing and a tutorial on our web site for making the cubes. I will be showing an advance photo some time soon of building #2, "Main Street Station" so that you can see more than one piece in the series at a time in a photo.     

Next is a really big design called "Orchard Valley Quilting Bee" which was stitched by Vonna whom you all know!  I think it was a labor of love.  At least I hope so.  It's one of those feel-good designs that remind us of simple times and days gone by.

As I was designing I saw the possibility of stitching the "smalls" within the design or combining a few to create a completely different horizontal chart.  I'm sure many of you are thinking the same thing!

Happy Stitching,

Gracie has a pink nose and a dirty mouth. . . . just sayin'.  :)

I still think she's cute.
