About Me

New York, United States
I’m in my mid-ish 30’s (excuse me while I sob uncontrollably). I love coffee, cross stitching, reading, gardening and travel. I hope to pass along some patterns and pick a few up along the way.
Some of the pics below have links embedded in their titles. Just click a title to go to the web site to find patterns (or see Labels on the right) You can also click on a picture to enlarge it.

Two By Two

I think the Prairie Schooler has some of my favorite patterns, they have the best colors and subjects. I think I am going to use several to create my tree hanging. I stitched this on 14 count beige aida.

Flight of the Fairy Reindeer

This is a cute freebie that I picked up (click on title for link to pattern). I love the look of the little reindeer, they are all screwy! I stitched this on 14 count blue aida. Well, I'm on to more Christmas patterns for the tree...

Sapin de Noël

I’ve just now begun my Christmas stitching, I stitched this on 28 count linen. I am hoping to get enough done before Christmas that I can assemble them into a tree shape. Click on the title for the pattern.

Enjoy Fall

This is one of my favorite parks. If you are ever in the New Paltz NY area, you owe it to yourself to pay Minnewaska a visit.

I recently joined the Embroiderers’ Guild of America and the December project is to make two mitten ornaments, one to keep and one to give away. This is the first ornament that I’ve made, and I think it looks good for a first attempt. I will hopefully have worked out all of the kinks when I make the second one. The patterns are from The Prairie Schooler Twelve Days of Christmas series.

I decided to put the Two Turtle Doves on the back. I added a small satchel inside with some balsam sticks, and I am craving winter now. I added a small patch of velcro to keep the balsam inside.
