Autumn Leaf Sampler

Hey all,

All this heat today made me feel like cooling off a bit so I thought I would add this fun, easy Autumn Leaf Sampler that I did. I think it is really cute and it is quick and easy since a lot of it is straight backstitching. I added a few Mill House beads for a little sparkle too! Enjoy and happy stitching!!

June Just Cross Stitch Magazine is here!!!

Today is an exciting day. I got my copy of this month’s Just Cross Stitch magazine in the mail.I just love getting my hands on a new cross stitch book or magazine. It always calls for a good long sit down to peruse that baby from cover to cover. But this time is special.

A little background for you. I just turned 50 and I have been cross stitching since I was about 12 when my wicked witch of the west sister-in-law (now, ex SIL) bought me my very first kit of a siamese cat (very complicated pattern by the way). I had played with some stamped embroidery with my mom for years before that but I just fell in love with the whole concept of making these stunning pictures by just making little x’s.  Combine that with my first love in life…COLOR and I was sooo hooked.

A stitcher was born. One that could never find just the right pattern. I always changed stuff up in some way to suit my taste and dreamed of stitching my days away and stitching my own designs.  Alas, four kids, a husband, many pets and jobs got in the way of my happy little fantasy.

But stitching and designing has always been my passion and now I have the time to work on that little fantasy. One of the huge, number one things that has been on my bucket list was to be published in a cross stitch magazine. It just seems like such an honor to have something that I made in a magazine.

So, today is exciting because it means that in about 2 months, I will be receiving my next issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine and it will be the first one that has one of my designs in it. It is going to be amazing to cross that goal off my list!! Although I can’t tell you anything about the design yet, I will say it is my all time favorite and I can’t wait to share it with the world.

Happy Stitching!!
