Welcome Spring?

Hi Everyone!
My latest is called "Welcome Spring"!  I know a lot of my dear friends are still dealing with snow and cold weather but I thought this design might help a little until Spring officially arrives.  It will go out to distributors this week so you should be able to get it very soon.

I finished them as ornaments in an egg shape but you could stitch as little pillows if you'd like.
You will get three designs.  The middle design is a surprise...hint, you will get to practice some specialty stitches.  Not hard though.  I made a pink box for my Easter eggs and since I don't have an ornament tree, I put my stitched egg in there also.

I think I am way behind on updating this blog...so I will add my other designs which have already been released in 2018.  

This is Primitive Hearts, a fun and easy stitch! 
And "Friends Gather Here".


In January I was "up to my ears" in painted boxes. Thank you to all the shops who ordered!  I had a great time working on them. I love to paint and kind of experimented with stenciling for a while before I was ready to release my kit.  Had to get the technique down.  It was too cold to go out so painting boxes kept me busy!  Thank you for all the orders... I will do another one soon. I think I have 5 left..so if you didn't get one, let me know.

Hope you are having a great week!

Update on the Flower Gatherer

Well... my naughty Flower Gatherer is all correct now!  She was a handful...after she got her corrections made she didn't want her  picture taken.  I guess she was as embarrassed as I am...
Shop Owners if you already ordered charts, I have corrected ones on the way to Hoffman.  If your order was already sent out, please contact them and they will tell you how to get the corrected charts. It will only effect you if your charts were mailed out Friday.  I sure am sorry this happened and will happily make it right. 

If you have any questions, please email me!

I'm sorry to say there is a huge mistake on The Flower Gatherer!  As hard as I try sometimes things get by....Here is the corrected area if you already purchased the chart.  New corrected charts will be sent out to my distributor as soon as possible.  If you have any questions, please e-mail me.

Where Has The Summer Gone?

I can't believe it has been a whole month since my last post! Where has the summer gone? It seems like it was just spring and now August is already half way gone.  I have been busy though and have failed to add my latest designs to this blog.

Since my little Christmas in July Trio, I have added my "Read Me A Story" design.  I found this verse somewhere....wish I could remember where.  When I see or hear a sweet verse I write it in a little notebook I keep to use later.  Some get used right away some stay in the little notebook for a while until some inspiration hits me.

I chose these colors so it could go into any child's bedroom, boy or girl.  You could change the colors to fit your needs...or even turn it into a wall hanging.  Grandmas, this is a good stitch for your favorite grandchildren...of course they are all favorite grandchildren.

Coming soon...they release to the distibutors next friday... my mini sampler stocking.  It is small and will be a nice addition to your ornament collection.

I left the toe area open so you could add initials or the year.  I also added the stocking template to the design pattern.  It was a lesson in patience for me to get my design inside of my stocking template but after several tweaks I finally got it balanced and a template that resembled a stocking! It is a flat finish and I used mini pom pom trim by Lady Dot Creates.

Finally to say so long to summer...I'm working on harvest and Christmas now, "The Flower Gatherer" is my final for this season.


I just love this saying...I think it is so true and wanted to use it on something. So my pretty little flower gathering lady got it. 

 As you know I have been one of the designers for Inspired Sampler Club from the Inspired Needle.  My second design called "Thankful Hearts" will be released soon.  I believe it is scheduled for an end of August release.  It was designed with the Harvest season in mind.  If you are interested in joining the club, contact Cathy at the Inspired Needle for more information.  You can still join and I think you can get all the club projects.  I will let Cathy release a photo first but will be back with more details later....

One last thing for shop owners... Norden Crafts is running a 10% off sale on all Abby Rose Designs patterns that they have already stocked.  Supplies are limited and only apply what is in their inventory.  There are quite a few of early Abby Rose Designs patterns available.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
