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:

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!
