Never Ending Sampler Panel 4 Band 14 - Panel Complete and Merry Christmas!!

Good morning everyone and Merry Christmas!!!

Today I have the final band of Panel 4 of the Never Ending Sampler!  I had to do a little figuring but I got my timing just right as I wanted to have Band 14 ready by Christmas!!! 

First, here is the complete sampler:

And here is the page for Band 14:

I hope ya'll like this panel.  I did it a little differently than the previous panels but of course, I still want everyone to do it their way.  My color choices are only suggestions and this will continue as we move on to Panel 5.  Before starting the next panel, I'm going to give everyone a few weeks to get caught up.

This one would be beautiful as a bellpull to hang for Valentine's Day!

And speaking of Valentine's Day, treat yourself to my 2019 Valentine's Day Cross Stitch Mystery Stitch-Along!  Part 1 will be released on New Year's Day!


In other news, the Spring 2019 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine will be released on February 1st.  It's another great issue!!!  Would you like to know who our cover designer is?  It's the one and only Margreet De Reus!!!  You can find Margreet and her beautiful crazy quilt work over on Facebook!!

And speaking of releases, get your needles ready!  I've been working on my Spring Cross Stitch designs!!  They will be released right after the New Year!!  We're talking Spring!  Bunnies, chicks, cats, samplers, shamrocks, birds.....there is something for everyone in my Spring 2019 releases!

For now, I'd like to thank everyone who has supported me and Kitty And Me Designs over the years. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of Kitty And Me Designs!  Can you believe it?  Where did the years go?  But yes, I started designing needlework 30 years ago.  And I expect the next 30 years to be even better because now, I can devote the majority of my time to my work!!!

I wish everyone a very safe and beautiful holiday season!

Merry Christmas and love to you all!!!

Never Ending Sampler - Panel 4 Band 13

Good Morning everyone!  Today I have Panel 4 Band 13 of the Never Ending Sampler:

Since Band 12 was a quick to stitch band, I thought I'd give everyone another band to work on over the weekend.

The last and final band for Panel 4 will be released this coming week.  Then I'll give everyone a little time to get caught up before starting on Panel 5.

Happy Stitching!

Never Ending Sampler Panel 4 Band 12

Happy Christmas everyone!  I have Band 12 of Panel 4 of the Never Ending Sampler today.

This one is quite easy so I fit it all on one page:

Right click on the image and save to your hard drive.  Print in any graphic software.

This band is satin stitched.  Use 3 strands of floss.  The color key is on the page.

We're almost to the bottom of this panel!  I think we only have 2 more bands to go!  I hope everyone is enjoying it!

I've been working on some brand new cross stitch patterns for Spring!!  They will be released shortly after New Years.  Be sure to watch for them!!!

Happy Stitching!!
