New Design Photos!!

Finally, here are the photos of my new designs! I hope you like them! The first one is A Virtuous Woman Stocking:
This is Grace McGaa's Sampler (My Christmas Gift from Art Sampler) done on both light and dark linen:
This is A Happy Halloween:


This is Swan:


And, this is The Birds & The Bees:


After a couple week of doing nothing but making charts, I should be able to get them finished today. Thank goodness!! Chart making is not fun stuff! For some reason, I've gotten into the habit of standing in front of my ironing board in the laundry room to put charts together. It's not a very stimulating atmosphere!! It would make much more sense to sit in front of the TV and do it, but I'm quicker in the laundry room!
Everything gets shipped off for Market on Monday. My house will return to normal. I'll be able to breathe. I might even make a dinner or two, which would thrill Art to death!
As I mentioned earlier, we're in the process of moving my studio down to the barn. It sounds much worse than it is! There is a huge, fabulous room in the barn, complete with a/c, cable, phone lines, electricity and a locking door! It's been Art's train room since we've moved in, but we decided I need more space, so I'm moving down!! I'm about half way through painting the room now and hope to finish next week. We have to put in a heating system before it gets too cold, but that shouldn't be a problem. As soon as we get everything moved out of my current room, we'll be able to tear into it and make it look presentable. That will be good since it's the very first room everyone walks into when the come into our house. My office never made a good impression! The thought of moving everything out of here and down to the barn is a bit daunting, but we'll live through it, I'm sure.
That's all my news for today! Hope you guys have a good one!

Oh, Kathy! You leave me speechless. I'd already seen A Virtuous Woman, thanks to a dear friend who was there for that class. (And I love it!) But Swan and The Birds and Bees are simply stunning. You never fail to amaze me.

Love the new desings. I think I have never stitched a CHS before, but I have the patterns at home.

Good luck moving 'office'

I see some future stash purchases, they are all such lovely designs.

That must be quite a barn you have. Good luck with the move.
