Sneak Peeks of New Designs



Norden's Fall Needlework Show is just around the corner - August 10th - 18th.  It's a wholesale show, for shops only, but certainly stitchers can pre-order designs through their favorite needlework shop.  I'll have two new designs for the show and thought I'd tease you a bit with some sneak peeks today!


The first one is called "My Day Complete" and contains a perfectly perfect verse some friends shared with me on Facebook.  And the design is a reproduction of an antique watercolor done by Daniel Kriebel, an artist who created Pennsylvania-German fraktur in the early 1800's.  An incredible sweet and generous friend, Kathy Lesieur, owns the original watercolor and allowed me to reproduce it in needle and thread.  I am ever so grateful!



The other is a Family Record sampler featuring the family of none other than Daniel Boone.  I know a few people in Kentucky who might enjoy that one particularly  (Beth and Poodle)!  I loved the idea of mixing a bit of American history into our stitching!




I'll be back soon with full photos.  In the meantime, I hope you are all having a wonderful summer, enjoying the ease of summer-life and the warmth of the wonderfully long days and balmy nights!
