What's New


Garden Gate Sewing Book & Pinkeep is one of three patterns just added from Stacy Nash Primitives. Stacy's use of soft, muted lighter colors in her new cross-stitch designs feel fresh as spring. Also new is her foray into the Dolls category with Velveteen Rabbit & Pinkeep Egg. See pictures of all the new patterns on my What's New page.

I've been feverishly recording ideas for rugs and needlepunch designs in my notebook, spurred on by the upcoming shows later in the year where I've been invited to vend. Will share more info and pics as these ideas take shape. What to do first??

We are in store for a beautiful weekend here in mid-coast Maine. 70s, might hit the 80s! Can't wait! I do need to get out and do a bit of pruning of old flower heads on my Japanese spirea before it starts to bud again. The mulch in the front planting bed needs replacing and I really want to replace our front walkway. It's currently a white stone and slate stepping stone arrangement but I'd like to have old brick out there. That might be a project for another weekend. Then there's the arbor I'd like to put on the side of the house with clematis planted on either end, hopefully to twine up the sides and meet at the top. I'm tired already!

Enjoy your weekend, whatever your weather...
