Happy New Year!

Winter Welcome

Winter Welcome © Joan A. Elliott

Here’s a little winter fun to bring in the New Year… a birdhouse brimming with friends and a welcoming wish to all who stop by. You’ll find this design in the current issue (#192) of Cross Stitch Collection.

Here in the studio this first week of 2011 I will be finishing up my two new series- the Fashionable Ladies you will start seeing in Cross Stitch Gold and the Flower Fairies that will begin soon in Cross Stitch Collection. I’m looking forward to a new year filled with lots of new designs, and I am especially eager to get to some of the requested themes you have sent in this past year.

I wish all of you the best for 2011: good health, happiness, and a year filled with beauty and grace.

    Happy New Year Joan, really looking forward to both the new series that you are releasing in Cross Stitch Gold and Cross Stitch Collection. Some time ago there was mention of a companion piece to the Dragon in Bewitiching Cross Stitch, is that likely to happen in the coming year?
