Jack Frost is coming....

"Holly Jolly Frosty"

My toes were chilly all day in my sandals and I spent the day wishing I had socks & warmer shoes on. There is just something about putting the sandals away....means winter is not far away. Feels like a soup kind of day, so I mixed up a batch of home made chicken noodle soup when I got home from the office and curled up in my comfy chair and stitched, taking in the yummy smell of soup cooking in the kitchen.

I noticed the elderly neighbor lady covering up her flowering plants as I was busy making soup...frost must be in the forecast for tonight. Oh the dilemma...do I cover my flowering plants, bring them in the garage, or let Jack Frost get them???

I have been busy trying to wrap up the next group of pattern designs. Always seems like there is a re-work part of this process. Often times it isn't until a design is complete that I don't like something, then I start ripping out or starting over. My Santa doll is the hold up....he is waiting for a new outfit from a different fabric to be stitched. I am anticipating the new designs will be complete by late next week.

Soon to be released pattern titles:

Holly Jolly Frosty (pictured above)
Winter Berries (punch needle)
North Woods St Nick (cloth Santa doll with cross stitched bag)
Mr. Flurry (punch needle)
& last but not least....a snowman doll that doesn't have a name yet!

Also in the works are 2 wintery cross stitch patterns (St. Nick & Parson Brown) These will be ready in a couple of weeks.

Autumn blessings,

Brenda, This snowman is adorable!

Are you any relation to the fabric designer, Sandy Gervais? I think I confused you with her at first. Both of you have charming designs!

I'll always love primitive and country!
