News on the fund raiser . . . . . .

First let me say THANK YOU to all of you who participated in the purchase of the dog and cat charts from Shakespeare's Peddler and Little House.  It was such a huge success.

My group was/is, the Southern Arizona Golden Retriever Rescue.  Joyce, who is the president there sent this video to me this morning of "Snoopy".  This sweet girl has been through quite an ordeal.  Some of the monies raised went to help her get the treatment she needed.  It is believe she swallowed a chemical thereby causing neurological problems.  When they first took her in she couldn't walk and had to be helped around with a towel to lift her off of the ground.  And you can see she is quite a different dog today!

Snoopy is the girl at the main focus of the video and is up for adoption.
Email Joyce at if you think you are the right person/family to help with her needs and provide a forever home to this sweet baby.

Thank you again!

Start the summer with these free charts from Little House.  

Call your local shop to order the recommended threads and they will send you the chart at no cost.

The bookmark would be a great starter project for a young stitcher!

Happy Stitching,

May Releases

I love Americana designs and have quite a few in the LHN pattern inventory.  This month's "Freedom House" is in keeping with a style I started ten years ago whereby two saltbox houses face one another.  You may remember Two Red Houses, Two Blue Houses, Two White Houses and lastly, Two Yellow Houses.

Freedom House
Next is a really fun pieces called "Louise and Henry," designed to compliment "Bessie" who is the milk cow released last year.  (She's a favorite of mine.)

Louise and Henry
Louise is the sheep and Henry is the crow.  Or at least that's how I see them.

Last this month is the Calendar Girl, June.

June Calendar Girl
May brought the flowers that attracted the June bees!  
July is right around the corner.  Growing up, there was a saying about July that stuck in my head while I was designing that girl.  Can you guess what it was?  Not sure how many people read blogs these days vs. Facebook so we'll see if there are any responses.

Vonna sent me photos of the last four Calendar Girls.  All I can say is F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E-S!  I guess in my opinion it's saving the best for last!  
Of course I hope you like them all but there is something special about those four girls!

A friend helped me figure out how to add a search box onto the LHN web site.  Go check it out when you are there the next time!

I will be stitching this weekend....I hope you will be too!
