Trunk Show

Ok, I am spilling the beans. I won’t personally be there but 12 of my designs will be! Look for them at The Counted Thread’s Camp Stitchmore Boutique in El Paso from Oct 23-27. I’ve sent many popular designs, including Fire and Ice, so you can see it in person. A similar design will be coming out sometime next year. If you happen to be there take some pictures for me and let me know what you think. Wish I could be there with you but the box/trunk wasn’t big enough.

In other news: I am extremely glad you all like Patchwork Trees in the latest issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework. Leslie, from Under the Sea Fabrics, made this perfect fabric for it. She has been working hard getting your fabric out to you. You definitely will be surprised when you see it.

We The People

This design was inspired by a vintage postcard from the early 1900’s. The middle is a reprinted card and comes with the design. The only place to order this design, due to limited resources, is etsy. The model is stitched on 28ct. Burnt Bronze from Under the Sea Fabrics. The threads used are from The Gentle Art. They are Deep Sea, Parchment and Claret. Stitch count is 99 x 117.

Ship’s Manor News

I’ve wanted to update/change my website for awhile now. So, here are the simple beginnings of what I have planned. I apologize for the clutter but I think, in the end, there will be less clutter and more stitching!

Since you only have a couple of pages to look at I thought I would surprise you with two new designs!  They will be released in the next couple of weeks. The first is called ‘Fire and Ice’. It is my first quaker-type design. The second is called ‘Butterfly Garden’. We turned it into an awesome fold with pockets to store your scissors, needles or whatever else you need/want. I will post some instructions/ideas on what else you can do with it soon.

That’s the great thing about this new site…more interaction!  Without further ado…here they are!
