Give Thanks for All Things

JE296 © Give Thanks for All Things

I love Autumn! The crisp sunny days, changing leaves in brilliant hues and all the little forest critters preparing for the coming colder weather. It has always seemed the perfect time for reflection and gratitude for the things we hold close to our hearts.

This Sampler celebrates the gifts of family and friends, for the support, comfort, and love they give in times of need and the joy they bring into our lives, and for our precious earth and the bounty it provides. Whether it is Thanksgiving time here in the US or any other time of year, let’s give thanks for all things great and small.

4 New Chartpacks

I am happy to have four new chartpacks ready next week. The Jewel Box is a delightful treasure stitched in gemstone colors and highlighted with sparkling Mill Hill beads and Kreinik threads. The Puppet Theater was inspired by a marionette craftsman that I met while traveling in Canada and is ready to delight with its whimsical characters and happy colors. Father Sun is now available in chartpack form. I’ve had so many requests for this it seemed the perfect time to let him shine in all his glory. Autumn Splendor, shimmering with rich colors of Mill Hill beads and Kreinik threads, is ready to stitch for autumn as leaves fall and seasons change. All of these designs will be available in your favorite online shops including 123stitch and Polstitches Designs .

A Little Spooky Fun…

JE277 All Hallow’s Eve Sampler $16

With summer heat upon us, it was a good couple of days to stay in and think cool. A little spooky magic came to mind this week while I was at my drawing table. Witches and ghosts, goblins and black cats, hooty owls and watchful ravens all join in for a night of spirited fun. My All Hallow’s Eve Sampler uses just two colors of DMC floss. Stitched on Polstitches Designs ‘taboo©’ 28 count Lugana to set the mood for a perfect trick or treat celebration.
