What a busy, busy, busy, busy, busy month! It's flying by! Where on earth did January even go?
I've got some new releases to show you, and if you like them, just let your shop know! The shops on my auto will receive theirs very soon, and they've already got the info in hand for the supplies you'll need if you choose to stitch any of them.
First up is Love One Another, stitched by the lovely Nicole Neville.

Framed by Sherri Berkman at Total Framing in Fairfax, VA. (703.426.0660) (By the way, the moulding is really deep and absolutely fabulous in person!)
Next up is Primitive Moodkeep... as stitchers, we have all kinds of "keeps" we stitch, like pinkeeps, threadkeeps, scissorskeeps.. so why not a little pillow to let others know what mood you're keeping that day? One side for a good stitching day, and another for a day of frogging. ;)
Stitch count for Blessings to Thee: 138w x 77h
Linen used: 40 ct. Olde Towne Blend by R&R
Threads used: Weeks Dye Works in the following colors:
Swamp Water (844)
Stitch count for A Pox Upon Thee: 142w x 72h
Linen used: 35 ct. Creek Bed Brown
Theads used: See above list.
All cross stitch over two threads.
Optional embellishments: The Gold Quaker Star button, sewn to the Blessings to Thee side, is by Just Another Button Company. The rusted safety pin attached to the A Pox Upon Thee side was made by my mom. I'm not sure how she made them, but I believe you can find a tutorial online.
These designs were stitched on two very different colors and fabric counts, and although they were sewn back-to-back to form one pillow, you can just as easily use two matching fabric counts or colors. And if you don't ever find yourself in a dark mood, feel free to make a single-sided pillow wishing blessings upon all who enter your home. :) Or maybe stitch it as a birthday gift for a dear friend!
I'll be back tomorrow with another release to show you! In the mean time, enjoy this gorgeous fall day, wherever you are!
