I love this time of year.
Not where we are on the calender,
in the midst of cold and snow.
it is what I get to design and stitch this time of year.
Refreshing and bright springy shades of flosses,
and stitching springtime flowers and critters...
It gets me through the winter and cold.
And guess what?!!
The tulips are now in the stores,
that is always so refreshing!
There is something that I love
about the contrast of a big bouquet of tulips
sitting by a window,
with snow as it's backdrop...
So on this sunny & cold winter's morning
I thought I'd share some photo snap peeks
at some new spring stitching that I've been working on.

I've always loved the gingham linen by Weeks Dye Works and have wanted to design with it for a very long time. It is sort of tricky to design around checks, but I love what I have come up with on this one
and think you will too...
it is soft, subtle,
and I really like the charm that the added antique buttons
give the finish of this small cupboard tuck.
Can you guess who these cute little feet belong too?
And who do these cute little shoes and floral apron belong too?
She is even wearing cute little pantaloons, see them peeking from under her dress?
These three designs and an antique reproduction coming soon!
