I am so happy to finally be able to release six new chartpacks. All of these will be available next week on both my Order Chartpacks page and through the usual online stores that you order from. Enjoy!
As many of you know I was able to attend the Cross Stitch Club Retreat in Hershey, PA last weekend, thanks to Earl’s driving and his help getting ready. It was a wonderful weekend and I was able to spend time with my friend and fellow designer, Ursula Michael, and to meet the talented designer Jean Farish. What fun! Getting to meet old and new stitchy friends was fabulous. There were 175 people in attendance, stitching away until the wee hours, enjoying new found friends, and having a chance to “shop ’til they dropped”. One of the thrills of Saturday was when Lori Laughlin, moderator of the Faces of Joan Elliott SAL on Facebook, presented me with a beautiful quilt put together by members of the SAL. It is amazing and has traveled to Vermont with me to keep us warm and cozy all winter. I am ever grateful to the talented stitchers for all their love and support. I’ll take this chance to show off the quilt:
Finally, the huge thanks to Fae Kuhn whose organizing genius and friendship made for a lot of happy people… Well done!
