3 Witches!

3 Cats for 3 Witches. The "Head Witch", the "Garden Witch" and the "Potions Witch" are the unofficial titles of these ladies.

Autumn has always been my favorite time of year. The colors, smells and temperature revive me. It awakens the senses and sparks creativity. Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine. But, not the slasher, scare-the-pants-off-you type. I like the organic... "hocus pocus"  type. While others are watching "Nightmare on Elm Street" I am watching Disney shows. Yes, I said it. I am a wimp.

So, this design is the lighter side of Halloween. A celebration of Autumn and comfort. I hope you like it!

Create & Decorate

Well hello everyone!  I've been busy with some upcoming magazine designs. Can't give out all the details just yet. But, I am very excited to announce that the new issue of Create & Decorate has a Ship's Manor design in it. It will be available in stores on August 14th. I don't know....maybe it's because I have not been designing long but it was total excitement to see my design in the magazine. I hope I never get use to it. It was even exciting to see a Shrinky Dinks ad in the same magazine. I have not shrunk some of them in an oven for a long time.

Two designs will be out soon. I will be releasing Fisherman's Village and 3 Witches at the same time. They will be out by the end of this month. No pictures of the Witches yet because I want it to be a surprise. I've been working on them off and on for two years. Yes, it's a big design but really fun to stitch. You can even break the design up into 3 different will see!

Christmas stitching is currently going on at my house even though I am dreaming of Halloween. Watch for a free Halloween design on my website August 13th. It's Ship's Manor's Birthday.

Until next time...Happy Stitching!
