I am so excited to tell you that I have teamed up with Jo Critchley at Polstitches Designs to create this beautiful printed quilt panel based on my cross stitch design “A Year of Angels”. My thanks to Jo for coordinating the project and finding the best fabric and printing techniques to create this panel.

The design is printed on 100% Cotton Calico and is priced at £16.99 (about $22US). The size of the printed panel is 59.5cm w x 79cm h (2.5cm white border)  23.6 in w x 31.1 in h (.75 in white border). Polstitches does ship internationally too. You can go directly to Polstitches Designs website to order : http://www.polstitchesdesigns.co.uk

I added borders from some fabric samples I designed years ago so when you make up the final quilt you will be choosing fabric patterns and colors to your liking and adding them as you see fit. It would be fun to pick up any number of colors from the printed panel in your borders. Your finished quilt will be unique to you, so let you creativity soar! The best news is that there are more to come, so stay tuned.

I am so happy to finally show you my newest design for Just Cross Stitch Magazine. The February 2017 issue is now on sale from Annie’s Publishing and also at 123stitch.com

I wanted to capture the feeling of lightly falling snow and the beauty of winter in this design. When stitched on sparkling opalescent fabric she comes alive with movement. Sparkling beads and metallic threads add dimension and hints of snow crystals and winterberries. I hope you will enjoy stitching her as much as I loved designing her!

Some Chartpacks You Requested…

I have finally managed to get to some of your long requested chart packs. Here are three to start. I will be sending these out to the usual online stores and you can also order from the Order Chartpacks page on this blog. Thanks again everyone!
