A gift and a great new Design from Stitchers Anon

Gaynor from Stitchers Anon had designed a new chart and has dedicated it to me. I am so touched by this sweet gesture from a dear friend. She has used the floss and trims from my Gingerbread Trim Bag. Here is part of her post:
Well, she brought out a pack of gingerbread trims and I fell in love with it: so much so I felt inspired to say thank you to Nancy in the only way I really can.

I designed this: The Scent of Ginger.

The house etc is stitched in Nancy's Dark Ginger Thread..it was perfect and so easy to seperate and use.  I didn't get one single tangle which is unusual for me and overdyed threads!

This was stitched on 32 count Belfast Linen (summer khaki) but I am thinking of stitching on 28 count and stitching some of the lace to the bottom of her skirt: there are trims in all three shades of the ginger that I used here.

And here it is with one of the buttons from the pack.

They look different colours but it got dark here really early and it was hard to take a proper photo. Sorry. The top one is probably truer to the colour scheme as I scanned it but had to use the camera once I had added the button.

I am looking forwards to seeing how I can use more of the trims when I work out how I am going to finish it.

This chart is available free.....yes, you heard right...FREE from Nancy when you purchase a pack of her ginger trims.  I'm not sure yet if it will be via pdf or hard copy.  

You can also buy the chart from me minus the trims..however, to really get it to look right you should use her thread though I have colour matched to DMC best I could.

Nancy, this is my gift to you to say thank you: you can offer it as a gift to your customers, also to say thank you: and people can promise not to email it or scan it and send it freely on the sly and that will be their gift to me and for that I thank them xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thank you Gaynor from the bottom of my heart. I love your new design and I will be happy to print them and give them with my Gingerbread Trims Pack. I also urge you to buy one from her directly. http://stitchersanon.blogspot.com/2013/11/new-release-for-nancy-scent-of-ginger.html
The internet has made the world a much smaller place...and meeting friends like you has been the best part of this business.
Lots of love,


  1. You are very welcome. I have some great ideas on how to use the ribbons in these packs to help 'finish' it....perfect playtime material.

  2. What a very sweet design! Of course it looks wonderful with your threads!
