Finishing up and moving on....

This week finished up my Mystery Monday for Pine Needles


And now I'm moving on to a new cross-stitch kit, Winter Typography.



Bella, my little Yorkie is sleeping by my side as I finish stitching and enjoy a peaceful Winter morn.

Mystery Monday!

It's time for a good mystery....... A Winter Mystery that is. And like any good mystery there are clues.....


I have designed a winter themed quilt for my store Pine Needles and today was the debut of the first chapter of this chilling mystery.  A new chapter to this Winter tale will then be revealed every Monday thru December 17th when the mystery will be solved and the final stitches complete. 

I can't wait for you to see how this tale unfolds.....

Crown Jewels


Above is a snippet of one of my favorite quilts.  The picture doesn't do the dimension of the crowns justice but they seem to pop off the fabric.  Each crown is creating using a unique folded fabric technique, yup that means now triangles to sew - just fold and sew.  The quilt has a bit of ric-rac on each crown.  I just may bling one up a bit, so check back.....

Quilt Market!

I just debuted my first fabric line Happy Ever After at Fall International Quilt Market. It took a lot of late night and early morning sewing to get us ready, but oh so worth the work.

Could not have done it without my mom and my sis!

What have I been up to???

I cannot believe how long it has been since I posted.  I tell you Christmas seems to really take it of me. Don't get me wrong, it is definitely my favorite time year but it does put my focus on things that are far from my computer.

Friday we started shipping February's kits to stores and I realized that I hadn't even shared January's designs with you, so here you go...

For 2012 I am releasing 2 kits each month, and then a few extra's sprinkled here and there.

This is my new 12" flange pillow, There's No Friend Like a Snow Friend.  There is an opening in the back to do the stitching through and it and when you are finished just smoosh in your 9" pillow form and wah-la you are done!

 Baby' it's Cold Outside is a 7 x 9 pillow, a new size for Pine Mountain.  Stitch it up on cool tropical blue 14 ct aida and slip it in the finished pillow. Easy-peasy.


I deerly love Valentines don't you. Aaah, reminds me there will be an end to winter and also, My cutie patootie daughter's Bday is the day before Valentine's so it really is a LOVEly day in our house!  Oh and there's one more reason I love this holiday, I LOVE PINK!!!!  Pink clothes, pink candy, pink walls, fabric, jewelry, cars, pink quilts--be still my heart. I truly believe that just about anything looks better pink!
Ta-Ta-For-Now, I'm on to stitch March's designs and watch Downton Abbey on Netflix. Doesn't get much better than that!
