Just a little sneak peak at the chart I am creating for my Canadian visit. She is now ready to pick colors and then on to the computer. I am having fun!

Although I have not posted much lately, I finally have something new to show you. So here we are and it is almost mid-June! Time flies way too quickly for me. Things have been busy here with design work, chartpack sales, my wonderful niece Christina graduating from college and then helping her find an apartment (not an easy task in New York, LOL!).
Now that summer is almost here I am very happy to show you what will be coming in the September issue #193 0f Cross Stitch Crazy magazine, on sale July 10th in the UK and digitally, and a few weeks after that in other areas.
Stitched on 28 count hand dyed ‘big bang’ Jobelan from Polstitches Designs, my newest mermaid floats in the soft colors of the sea. Strands of precious pearls drape gracefully around her as she shimmers in the shadows and light of her underwater world. As always, I have used lots of beautiful Kreinik #4 braid to capture the light and Mill Hill beads to add depth and dimension. I loved designing her for a midsummer treat. I hope you will all enjoy the stitching!
One last note. I know that summer is a good time to begin a bit of holiday stitching so I will be posting some new chartpacks soon to give everyone an early start.. and yes, that will include a new stocking design. Happy June everyone!

To all of you that may have recently purchased the Black & White chart pack JE123 1920’s Flapper, it seems that some of the black & white chart packs have gone out with the wrong key. Below you will find the corrected key. Please check it against the chart you have purchased to make sure you have the same symbols in the key as appear in the chart. I am posting the updated key below for you to print and use should the one in your package not match the symbols on your chart. This correction does not pertain to the color chart packs or any of the charts in the magazines.

I will be posting them in the gallery this afternoon.
