Spring Has Sprung

It is really nice waking up to the fresh air of the early morning. The pink blossoms are starting to show on the trees and the grass is turning into a lush green. It is still cool out so it is enjoyable and comfortable to go outside. Spring has definitely sprung in my area, which inspired me to stitch up a motif from my Rose Alphabet last night.

The Snow Queen

Even though it is spring time, my mind is stuck in the winter months when it comes to designing cross stitch patterns. My latest cross stitch design is this Snow Queen who prances around in the sky while creating the falling snow.

She is covered in Kreinik and Mill Hill beads and is stitched using DMC threads. I am currently waiting on some hand dyed fabric so I can stitch the model of her to show off all of the beads and sparkle.

She is currently available on my Etsy site.

Kanavice 38

I am excited to announce that I am published in another cross stitch magazine. The magazine is a Turkish publication by Tuva Publishing called Kanavice. I am in the current issue 38 with this cute little English cottage.
