Uber Shamrock from Bent Creek is Chart of the Week

Uber-Shamrock-St-Patricks-Day-Cross-StitchSt. Patrick’s Day is this week ~ YAYYYY! Okay, perhaps we get a little too excited about it in my house. But it’s fun and the kids get to celebrate the smidgen of Irish that they have in their heritage.

Birthday Blessings is Chart of the Week

Birthday-Blessings-by-LizzieKateTomorrow is my youngest son’s 12th birthday, so instead of focusing on Valentine’s Day cross stitch designs this week I’ve been looking at birthday designs. Aside from birth samplers the selection is limited. But I found this super cute Lizzie-Kate design called Birthday Blessings.

Now I’m off to go shopping for birthday cake supplies to make the triple-chocolate cake he requested I make…. hopefully I can get some stitching done while the cake is in the oven later tonight.

Happy Stitching (and happy birthday too!)

Fjord Ponies is Chart of the Week

Fjord-Ponies-Cross-Stitch-SamplerSampler style and horses…
Could a design be any more awesome than that?

I’m pretty sure the correct answer is no, a design could not possibly be any more awesome. I just fell in love with this sampler this morning. And yes, I bought it even though I just bought a new sampler to work on at the beginning of January and I didn’t even start that one yet.

The model for Fjord Ponies by Ink Circles is stitched on 32 count Vintage Sugar Maple by Lakeside Linens using Vikki Clayton HDF color floss

I love the little splashes of color and the hearts worked into the quaker blocks, very fun :)
