January 2017 New Chartpacks

Hi Dear Friends- I am starting off the New Year with 8 new chart packs now available on my Order Chartpacks page. A few of these are were put up a bit earlier this month but I think you can see the new additions too. Have fun browsing. X Joan

PS- I was uploading the new labels to the Order Chartpacks page and seemed to have lost everything on that page. I am rebuilding it over the next few days. Sorry for any inconvenience but it will be back to normal soon.

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!

Switching Seasons…

I know that a lot of stitchers are thinking of projects for Christmas so I now have two new designs out to get you started stitching for the holidays.

First in Cross Stitch Gold Issue 132, on news stands now, A Visit from Santa. I’ve pictured the design on Polstitches Designs beautiful hand dyed ‘snow cap’ 28 count Jobelan. His bag is filled with all sorts of Christmas goodies and the design sparkles with Kreinik metallic threads and Mill Hill seed beads, making him very festive indeed!

Just hitting the stands in the UK today is my latest Christmas Victorian Lady. She is out for a snowy stroll in her holiday frock and her lush warm furs and looking pretty as a picture. You will find her in Issue 222 of Cross Stitch Crazy. Stitched on the palest blue fabric, the shimmering beads in her dress and hat reflect the twinkle of snowflakes all around her.
