And a close-up...
Does anyone have an interest in my releasing this design? I call it "Seven Sins & Seven Virtues". It's stuck on the hard drive of my old computer and I can retrieve it but I don't know if it is worth the hassle. Let me know if this is a design that you might collect or even stitch. Thanks!

I'll say it again, wow! Olga has these and more photos posted in her blog here
This is my Stitching Treasures piece from the October issue of The Gift of Stitching magazine. I think the pink gingham fabric was inspired, sure wish I had thought of it and I love the little sunflower pincushion. Thanks Olga so much for sharing, you did a fabulous job!

The above are 2 new designs. The first 2 are in one chart packet and I'm calling them "Gentle Thoughts". They use 32 ct Antique Ivory linen. The scans look different but in person they are the same fabric.
The 2nd design is the "Singing Bird Stitching Pocket", once again finished by the fabulous Deb Hunter of Artistic Needle. Instructions for assembly are included and the threads are from The Threadgatherer's Silk 'n Colors line. This piece uses 32 ct Antique White linen.
I have a couple more designs to release (including Gentle Thoughts 2) plus the promised family record sampler. It's totally ridiculous that I have stalled on getting that piece finished and it's all due to stitching my dad's name under the willow tree. I seem to be having a mental block about doing that but it will be done very soon, just have to bite the bullet and get stitching.
