Free Thanksgiving Cross Stitch Design!

Hello all, hope you are well!

Things are busy here and I have begun plans for a Thanksgiving feast with my daughters, husband, brother and father. I am reminded of my many blessings, not just the big things like family and friends, but also the everyday mundane things that I often take for granted - today it was my washing machine (I can't imagine have to do ALL that laundry by hand - gag).

In the spirit of gratitude & giving, I wanted to offer another freebie for everyone to enjoy. Feel free to share, but as always, this and all of my designs are copyright protected.

May your blessings be many!

Hello friends!

Here in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, the air is chilly and the leaves are tuning spectacular colors!! Halloween is just around the corner!

A new & wonderful friend of mine (a great lady named Vilma from Examplars From The Heart - and an incredible designer) suggested that I put one of my freebies on my blog for everyone to enjoy. Why didn't I think of that?!? This free design (as well as some others that are often changing - check back often) is also available on my website - . Colors used are DMC 310 (black) and DMC 920 (orange). Feel free to print, stitch, share with friends, ENJOY, but please remember that all of my designs (including freebies) are copyright protected .

I can hardly believe that summer is almost over. Before I know it, the leaves will be turning, I'll wake up to frost on the ground, my girls will be back in school and picking out pumpkins. Got me to thinking about some new designs for fall. Here is the first one (coming soon) called "Haunted Holler".

Hello all! It's been an incredibly busy start of the summer, but wonderful and fun, so I can't complain. I have a few new designs coming out soon, they vary in style, a lot of missing the beach, tapping into the 60's, watching too much LOST, and hoping for peace on earth! All over the place, no rhyme or reason, just whatever has been on my mind!

Please note - these, like all of my designs, are copyright protected.

Coming soon... The Lighthouse.

Coming soon... Magic Bus!

Coming soon... Peace on Earth.

Coming Soon..... The Island.

Woops - here it is... 3 new designs...
Hello all! It's finally spring here in Ohio, although, now that I said that, we'll most likely get a freak April snow. It has happened before! But, for now, the birds are back, the flowers are blooming, the trees are budding, and I am smiling!

Here are three new designs coming in the next week or so...

The Stitcherhood - Cross Stitch Designs

Hello Friends,

My name is Maria, and I'm a cross stitch addict.

I have been stitching for - oh, too many years to count - but am new to the designing world. I am so thrilled with the responses that I have received and have met some wonderful people along the way.

I live in a small town in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains with my husband and 2 beautiful daughters. I have a dog - Wilbur - and cat - Fuzzy - and way too many dust bunnies to name, let alone count.

I would love any input or advise on my designs and on the Wonderful World of Cross Stitch Designing in general. Please visit my website - - and let me know what you think. While you're there... feel free to print and enjoy a few freebie patterns.

Many thanks. Be well. Happy Stitchin'.
