Christmas Card Holder

I decided to take my Christmas Stags and put them on a Christmas Card Holder. Hung with a simple ribbon this will hold lots of cards this season. I used to display cards all over...didn't we all...but this is so much easier...and neater.
This is such a "colorful" time of the year with all the Christmas fabrics and stitched goodies. Add the Christmas decorations, gift wrap and baked goods...I wish this would last all year long!

Happy stitching.

New Black Bird Design

In keeping with the Black Bird line of designs, I decided to do a crowing rooster...made of Black Birds of course! All kinds of black birds.....and the title is "Birds of a Feather Crowing Together". The  stitch count is 147 x 80. I have it pictured on gold linen.
I thought this design would be perfect for the Black Birds collectors, Rooster Collectors, the Checkerboard collectors........and make them all happy at the same time.

I plan on doing a lot of small primitive designs after Christmas. I am not ready to think spring just I enjoy winter too much. I like to savor every cold, cozy day and stitch and design till my heart's content. Don't we all?

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. We all have so much to be thankful for...I know I do.

Black Bird Christmas Charts

What could be better than a family of black birds singing We wish you a Merry Christmas? Shown stitched on linen, design size is 103 x 55. I also did the Noel bell with black birds this week. Some days it is hard to work on patterns with so much to do this time of the year but I give it my best. One can only do so much......

I am adding these two charts to the selection for the chart winners to pick from....only a few more days to go until the drawing on the 25th. Good luck ladies!

Back to patterns......

Basket of Thanks

I was thinking of this pattern late last while I was sending lots of emails and charts to the winners of the drawing I did this pattern for Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be thankful for.....I know I do. I thought a whimsical pattern with a whole basket of thanks would be adorable. I rarely have time to stitch all the patterns I do so thank goodness for good stitching programs and I can draw and stitch  it as I go!
Design is 89 x 60.

Christmas Reindeer

I finished stitching a pair of stags(borrowed from a an Antique German Sampler and did my own motif in the middle......I will finish this into a small cushion.....haven't decided if I want to add A Merry Christmas to it yet. Lots of stitching still needs to be done on ornaments as I am decking the halls around here...literally. One can never have too many Christmas decorations.
I will have this pattern available in a few days.
