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

Love Quaker Style is Chart of the Week

Love-Quaker-Style-cross-stitch-patternI’ve been in the mood for some Quaker-Style samplers lately – and I’ll show off some new stash later this week – but this caught my eye with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. This is Love Quaker Style by AuryTM Designs.

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

Mill Hill Peacock Kit is Chart of the Week

peacock-mill-hillTo be fair this is a “kit” and not a “chart,” but I really love these fun little kits from Mill Hill.

They’ve really been stepping it up with their designs this year and I’m really pleased with the things they’ve been releasing.

Have only one rule:

Be your wild courageous brilliant self every single day, no matter what.

I certainly agree, that’s a great rule to have and live by :)

The Peppermint Pig is Chart of the Week

Peppermint-Pig-Cross-StitchHow stinkin’ cute is this!? I’m pretty sure pigs and peppermints don’t get much cuter. I love these kind of samplers with fun themes and colors.

The individual motifs from the Peppermint Pig could easily be turned into holiday ornaments too. [Read more…]
