A Quick Update

 

 

Hi Everyone-
I’m just beginning catch up with everything in the studio. We’ve had some good news about my brother’s illness. His surgery went well this week and  he is now recovering nicely. When the doctor told us he is, at the moment, cancer free, you can imagine  how happy we were. To stay that way, he will begin treatments as soon as he is strong enough.  From my heart, thank you everyone, for your wonderful healing thoughts and prayers through all of this. They have been a tremendous help to all of us!

Now I’d like to introduce you to another Fairy coming out in World of Cross Stitching. Here she is, a gentle fairy mother and her darling little cherub. This design was done for making up as a birth sampler but if you prefer to use it  as a picture, try filling in the area where the names appear with some of the pretty little posies at her feet.

 Also, In Issue 152 of World of Cross Stitching, you may have already seen my  Fairy Tale Alphabet. I did this design with little ones in mind. Use the letters to make up pretty name plates, door hangers, a  sweet personalized pillow or whatever strikes your fancy. It might be fun to try your hand at using 14 count waste canvas to  stitch a name on a sweatshirt or book bag too!
