New Cross Stitch Pattern Releases

Have I ever mentioned that I really don't like January?  It's like the month that never ends!

I've kept myself quite busy designing some new cross stitch patterns. 

First is another set of ornament design in the Crazy Ornaments series:

Crazy Easter Eggs can be worked on Perforated Paper or on 14 count Aida.  Don't you love how I sneak some Crazy Quilting in my Cross Stitch designs!!

I've also added some new cats to my Colorful Cats series:



There will be more.  I come up with the names first and then I do the designs and now I have a list!!

Also part of the Colorful series of cross stitch designs are these new releases:




Like I said, I have a list of ideas for more Crazy Ornaments and list of names for more designs in the Colorful series.

You find all my current patterns available here:

Happy New Year and New Releases!

Wow, it's been awhile since I posted an update.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!

With the holidays behind us now, it's time to get down to some serious stitching time!  I'm sure by now everyone knows that stitching helps to relieve stress!  And these days, we all have plenty of that to relieve!!

First, I want to share all of my new cross stitch releases. 

It's no secret that I absolutely love cats!!  I really love all animals but cats truly are my favorite.  I've started a new series of cross stitch patterns called Colorful Cats!  These are modern style, geometric cat designs each with a very unique name:







Are these fun or what?!!  I need to stitch one of these, probably Nightmare because I had a Nightmare kitty.

Worked mostly in full stitches with just a few 1/4 stitches and a twinge of backstitching, these design use one Kreinik metallic in each design for a touch of sparkle.

Of course I couldn't stop with cats!  With Spring and Easter coming, I decided to do some Colorful Bunnies as well:



Like the cats, these Colorful Bunnies are worked mostly in full cross stitches with a few fractional stitches and a twinge of backstitching.  And they use a little bit Kreinik metallic.

My Crazy Ornaments have been so incredibly popular.  I have loads of ideas for more but for now, my newest ones are Snowmen and Daisies:


These can be worked on Perforated Paper which makes them quick and easy to finish into ornaments, refrigerator magnets, package tie-on's or bookmarks.  Of course they can be stitched on 14 count Aida as well.

I actually stitched up one of the trees and one of the shamrocks:

Mine are worked on Perforated Paper by Mill Hill and I'll be making them into refrigerator magnets.

These and all of my cross stitch and crazy quilt products can be found in my Etsy store.  Be sure to use Coupon Code:  STITCH1 when you place your order.

Also, there's a really cool new Facebook group for stitchers who like to make ornaments!  If you would like to join, here's the link:
