Sweet Summer Cross Stitch Patterns

I can't believe it's Memorial Day weekend already!  Where did Spring go?  Here in northern Illinois, I don't think we had it yet!  LOL!!

It's been a busy week for me as I have just complete 3 new designs.  That's how inspiration hits me.  I get a couple of ideas all at once and can't decide which one to do first!!

My new projects are Summery and whimsical.  I'm not big on the noise of fireworks but the little POP! POP! POP! of firecrackers inspired a fun patriotic design with gold metallic (Kreinik) stars cascading down from red, white and blue firecrackers.




Something To Crow About was inspired by my cousin Kim.  She loves crows but isn't really fond of primitive designs so she asked me to design something with a realistic crow.  The addition of a watermelon slice, a bright yellow sunflower and some cool vines with red berries gives this design an updated country charm.



Finally, strawberry season is just around the corner. Bluebird On A Strawberry!   A giant strawberry gives a little bluebird a place to rest his feathers!  Realistic yet whimsical at the same time.



I'm sure one of these is the perfect project for your Summer stitching rotation!



Ask for my pattern leaflets at your favorite Needlework Retailer stores or

find them in my Etsy shop!

I hope you have a safe Memorial Day weekend!!

New Cross Stitch Pattern Series - Cats And Mandalas

Mandalas are all the rage right now!  I've been busy working on a new series of cross stitch patterns.  Cats And Mandalas are a series of 12 cross stitch designs, one for each month of year.  Each design features my signature black cat!  The pattern leaflets also include the pattern for the mandala alone so they can be stitched with or without the cat!














Here is what the mandalas look like without the cats:












These are available in my Etsy store as both professionally printed pattern leaflets and as instant digital PDF downloads.

I'm also offering free shipping on the entire set of 12 pattern leaflets.

Also, check my list of retailers who carry my designs.  I like to support the needlework retails stores!!

Never Ending Sampler Panel 5 Band 8

They delay is over!  I've been working on getting the Summer 2019 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine up and I've been working on a new series of Cross Stitch Patterns which will be available next week.

I've had a little time to put Band 8 of Panel 5 of the Never Ending Sampler together so here it is:

Save this image to your computer and print it up in any graphic software.

I'm hearing that Panel 5 is everyone's favorite so far.  What are your thoughts?  Which panel is your favorite?

Do you prefer the patterns in all black or do you like the color suggestions?  Please let me know.  The panels usually have about 16 bands each so I'm starting to get ideas together for the next panel.

Leave your comments.  I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
