It's been awhile!

Pardon my absence and neglect from this blog!  The last several months have been busy preparing for the Nashville Needlework Market.  Intense stitching and intense pattern packaging has been my life since mid October.  We are now just a couple weeks away from packing up a cargo van and pushing off towards Nashville, and there is still lots to do!  The van will be loaded with tables, props, models of new patterns and boxes and boxes of patterns.  This is a wholesale market so watch for these patterns to pop up in your local needle work shops, for purchase, the latter part of the first week of March. 
Visit me each day,
here on my blog,
 as I give you little peaks at the
With Thy Needle & Thread cross stitch charts.
Our Lady Liberty, a gift of friendship from the people of France was the inspiration for this pattern.   A universal symbol of freedom and democracy.  I have always loved what she stands for, and it was a joy to stitch her in cloth.  She was dedicated in 1886, so you will find her completion date on the piece, as well. 
Stop back tomorrow for another peek!
With thy Needle & Thread,

I am so glad to see you blog again. I frequently check and I do follow you on Instagram but I love to read more and see a bigger picture. This piece you have done is beautiful and moving. I look forward to seeing it in it's entirety and stitching it. So inspiring! God bless your trip with safety and all the things that you desire!

I do have a question about the little table for the squirrel pattern. When I went to purchase the Teddy Bear Brown Folkart paint I found it as Teddy Bear Brown and Teddy Brown Tan. Which one was required to paint the table? The picture with the pattern doesn't really look like a brown on top of the black but a lighter color.

Thank you!
