I am pleased to tell you that all the stitched models, manuscript, illustrations, and photo props for the newest book are now safely in the hands of the publisher in the UK. As soon as I get the OK from them I will be able to let you know what to expect from this one, including the title. Publication is set for the end of this year. So for now it’s on to new ideas.
There are some new designs out in the magazines too. For UK’s Cross Stitch Collection (Issue 157) I’ve granted them exclusive permission to print the chart for my ‘Sea Goddess’ from A Woman’s World in Cross Stitch.
The cover of issue 200 of the UK’s Cross Stitcher features my new Geisha design,’Oriental Elegance’. I’ve stitched this on a pretty pink Aida to add a beautiful springtime feel to the design.
I loved working on this Puppet Theater design for Cross Stitch Gold (Issue 57). It’s bright cheerful colors bring back wonderful childhood memories!
…and for everyone that loves their own special kitty, I have an easy to stitch wall hanging in The World of Cross Stitching (Issue 137)
In the July issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework magazine you’ll find a bright and happy teen angel tote (courtesy of Charles Craft) and accessories, perfect for your special princess.
Finally, David & Charles will release a new collaborative Christmas book in early June. The title is Cross Stitcher’s Countdown to Christmas and I have contributed three chapters including an heirloom Advent Calendar, a Santa Post Bag, and some sweet little Stocking Ornaments. You can find it at amazon.com, fwbookstore.com and davidandcharles.co.uk
More things are in the works, so keep in touch for more news soon.
With fondest wishes-
