* Winter Rabbit Now Available *

New Cover blog

Oh, I got so lucky with this design! It just hopped out of my fingers into the design program. Like, I drew the rabbit the way I wanted to on the first try. That literally never happens for me. I just really love this little guy. He scampers happily through the first snow of my imagination.

This embroidery is done on 32-count Natural Brown linen from Wichelt with 2 plies of DMC floss. The stitching area at this fabric count is 6" x 8" (15cm x 20cm), and that's 96 stitches wide by 128 stitches high. You can fit this in a ready-made 8" x 10" frame. All of the floss is included in the kit, along with the fabric, and the printed full-color pattern (if you prefer a black-and-white chart, as always just email me and I will send you the PDF for your use).

Cross stitch is done with #24 tapestry needles, so don't forget those if you need them. Our beautiful Hardwicke Manor hoops and Bohin heart scissors are back in stock, too.

And if you need any of the other kits in this series so far, we still have them all in stock. Click on the image to take you to the "Embroidery Kits" page where they all live.

Natural Series

Thus ends the "natural" series, as we called it around here, never having come up with a better name. I was inspired by old-fashioned seasonal woodcuts for this series, and I really haven't exhausted that inspiration so it might come back. Gosh I love how they all look together. I don't know. 2021. The work of 2021 was rough. It makes me feel so many things to look at these, and to see beauty in them after all. I can't stop looking at them all together. How strange. I feel like crying. Why am I crying!

WinterwoodsBlog

Here! This is the Winterwoods ABCs Sampler Kit, now back in stock. It might have been the first cross-stitch kit I had ever designed. It is stitched on 28-count Cashel linen in Smokey Pearl with Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed floss.  I will design more kits with hand-dyed floss in 2022, I think. I love it but it's very expensive and it's nice to have kits, I think.

CoverBeautyBlog

We also have First Snow kits restocked. This was the first in a series from a few years ago. It's done on 32-count linen with DMC floss and fits in an 8"x10" frame.

And Things of Winter is also now back in the shop!

And we also still have Winter Wreath kits in the shop (along with the other designs from the hoop series). These are so quick to stitch up and make such nice little gifts.

LoveAndJoyBlog2

Last year we reissued one of my very favorites, Love and Joy. We still have them in the shop. It's done on 28-count linen with DMC and fits in an 8"x10" frame. Easy to change that year to 2021.

PeppermintCream

And Anna has made a new batch of lotion bars so all of them are in the shop right now (but they go fast, so don't wait on them). They make perfect stocking stuffers! This one is Peppermint Cream.

Postcards1

I also still have packages of pretty winter postcards available. Eight postcards with eight white envelopes.

Ornaments

And ornament patterns (just one kind of kit left of these, Sweet Home).

Flowret for Blog

And don't forget this free pattern for A Flow'ret Bright crown for Santa Lucia Day. Just look at that sweet girl. Gosh. Four whole years ago this was, now.

I hope these early winter days are warm and cozy for you. Thank you again as always for your orders and your interest in my work. I'm more grateful that I can say. I wish you the simple joys of stitching this season. I will be back with more of what I'm up to next week and show you how we decorated our house this year. Our tree is up, our mantle is fancy, and want to bake some gingerbread cake right away. Love you guys. XOX, a

Such sweet winter kits and I love the simple early winter feel of the whole blog post. I know these will sell out quickly. Happy early winter to you.

This post is so inspiring! I snatched up the newest kit and a lotion bar. I am at work right now and realized I left my cute squirrel lotion bar at home today and I'm so disappointed. Now I need to work but I am in the mood to look at your past Christmas posts.

Sweet bunny! Those four in the "natural" series make such a charming set! Super-impressive design skills!! No wonder you were moved to tears at the final result of all your hard work under difficult circumstances. They are absolutely stunning.

Oh don't the cross stitches look fabulous together! I'm going to have to hone my skills if I want to tackle all of them. Does Amelia still wear her st Lucia crown? I'm excited to see your decorations, your house always looks so cosy.

My "lifesaving" dish these days has been a Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta from Budget Bytes (https://www.budgetbytes.com/one-pot-creamy-cajun-chicken-pasta/). The flavors are soooo good!
