Hand Embroidery Design Sale and February Violets

I've been going through my hand embroidery designs lately.  They've been accumulating over the years and I'm running out of room to store them.  I'm putting them on sale at great prices in my Artfire shop.  Green Tea and Jasmine is a nice size for a frame or can easily be made into a pillow or wall hanging.   Here's the link for Green Tea  

French Kitty is a fun whimsical cat in front of the Eiffel Tower in a meadow of red poppy flowers.  He's a good cat.  I'm not sure why, but I've always thought of him as a male cat.  Here's the link to see French Kitty

I've made a kit for the February Violets design.  It comes with the flour sack towel, hand dyed flosses and fabric for the border.  A fun and quick project.

Scottie Dog Mug Rugs and February Flour Sack Towel

Some scottie dogs for Valentine's Day!  A new mug rug pattern set with Scotties embroidered in pink and turquoise.  These would look great in redwork too if you're not all that into pink.  

I've started a new series of patterns featuring the birth month flowers.  I wanted to use violets this time for February, instead of irises.

And January carnations.  I also have a few kits available for these patterns.  The kits include the flour sack towel, flosses and the fabric seen in the photo.  Hope you have a good weekend.  It's madly blowing dust around here with no rain, unfortunately.  Maybe next week.

Christmas Pillows

Our local Christmas craft fair was held last weekend and I made pillows of several of my needlework designs to sell.

I only have so much room to store my handmade items so each year I sell a few to make room for the new.  

Our show was a success and I enjoyed myself selling things and buying creations made by others.

I think I may miss this little angel the most out of all of these.  The pillow turned out nicely and I liked the red and brown colors together.   The person who bought the pillow seemed happy to have it and that makes me happy.   

I wish everyone Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best in the new year!
