Merry & Bright Exclusive Club Preview!

Here's another look at one of the designs from my upcoming seres Merry & Bright.  This one is another Fancy Stitches exclusive, this one with stitch guides by their shop teacher Martha Johnson.  Martha always adds lots of color, sparkle and unexpected touches to everything she stitches, and that's why I love it when she stitches for me!  Consider this one for instance:


Compared to the actual canvas below, notice how she transformed the blue chain to snowflakes and added a kind of lacy effect to the candy-stripe ornament. I love that!!


This series will be available in two color schemes, Bright (above) and Traditional, below.


The print ad below shows all five designs in the series. Give the shop a call at 817 641 4761 for more information and to sign up!

Christmas in July!

Once again I have been honored to have my designs published in the 2016 Cross-Stitch Christmas Annual, published by Cross-Stitch & Needlework magazine.  This year's edition is titled "Yuletide Traditions" and features three of my designs!

First off is two of my existing needlepoint designs, "Merry Robin" and "Bright Bluebird".  I love the adaptation to cross-stitch on these, and the framing is just gorgeous!


Next up is Christmas Fox, this design is new and exclusive to the book:


Here a look at this year's cover, check your local bookstores and needlework shops, it will be on shelves soon!
