Published... again! Happy. Happy. Happy.

I'm so very excited to announce that I have another design published, this time in the Just Cross Stitch 2012 Special Christmas Ornaments Issue!

See there in the second picture... #3

Last time was the 2012 Halloween Issue... and now Christmas! 

Wow, I'm so honored as these are my 2 favorite magazines on the planet! I've collected them for years. 

 I am stunned and amazed to be included in this magazine with such amazing designers as Blackbird Designs, Lizzie Kate, Plum Street Samplers, The Prairie Schooler,  La-D-Da, The Workbasket, oh... I could go on and on and on... so humbled... these are some of my absolute favorites!

So if you haven't gotten them yet... run out and find yourself a copy of both. You won't be disappointed!

PS - A special thanks to Faye for the lovely finishing work!

Hello and Boo to you!

I wanted to offer my older freebie
 "Boo" as several folks have asked about it. 
So... here  ya go....

I stitched this fella in DMC 310 (black) 
but you could stitch him any way you choose. 
He is 35 stitches wide and 43 stitches high... 
just perfect for a pin keep, Halloween 
card, ornament, anything. 

Click on the picture to email me to request 
the free Boo PDF pattern! = ) 

I'd love to see and share any pics of finishes!
