This has been one busy summer! Just got home this morning from Alabama and New Orleans. We had a great time, but it's always good to come home.
Mariah is all settled in at college and we are helping Cody move in Friday.
So it's time to get busy and get things ready for St. Charles.
I don't have any pics yet (but soon). So far it's looking like my new releases will be~~~
1. Witches Hollow~this is a pretty big design, Karen V did an awesome RR, and she so graciously allowed me to pattern my design from it. Charity is working away on the model.
2 Retro Halloween~this one is stitched (thanks to Marlaine) I just picked out a frame today. This design was inspired from a vintage piece of crepe paper.
3. Fly Needles Fly~ This one has a cool fall/Halloweeny verse, Julie is working on the model.
4. God Bless Us Everyone~this is a small Christmas design that Nicole just finished.
5~Let Your Life Speak~this is a Quaker type design that Eve is currently working on.
6~Tombstone Spots~this one is inspired by the grave rubbings Mariah and I did this summer. Laurie is stitching the model.
I think that about wraps it up. I'm stitching a witchy (what else?) freebie model.

Cape Cod's Boys is not quite done. I was hoping to have it done for St. Charles but it is not looking good.
Hoodoo Voodoo is also in the works.

A shout out to Just Cross Stitch for the wonderful article! Thanks so much!

Hi, Lisa! Sounds like your trip went well and you have been very busy! Can't wait to see everything.

Yes, hats off to Just CrossStitch. If it wasn't for them it would have taken longer to find a kindred spirit. I, too, am a Halloween/witch addict and most of my stitching for the last few years is geared for the holiday. I plan on placing an order tomorrow and I'm looking forward to your new pieces. Tombstone rubbings sound wonderful. Where oh where do you find your frames? Perfect finishings.

I loved the article in the Just Cross Stitch magazine. It was the only reason that I bought it - that, plus the free pattern that was in there by you. It was worth twice the cost of the magazine to me! Can't wait to get started on it.
