Happy April to everyone.  By now, maybe everyone has recovered from the Nashville Market and is ready to see something new.  I hope so, anyway!  Here are four new releases, enjoy.

PRAISE
Praise

Praise was stitched on 30-count Legacy linen (Custard Cream), using flosses from DMC and The Gentle Art.  Stitch count is 117 x 146.  The timing of this piece amazes me.  I finished stitching it and getting it framed just before my mother passed away.  She is indeed free and I know she is singing.

LILACS
Lilacs

Lilacs was stitched on 40-count white linen, using Classic Colorworks silk flosses.  The finishing was done by Valerie Leith.  Stitch count is 63 x 87.

TIME

Time

Time was stitched on 36-count R&R Reproductions linen (Plum Street Blend), using flosses from DMC and The Gentle Art.  Quote by Henry Van Dyke.  Stitch count is 125 x 96.  Another quote that brings me to tears for what it means to me right now.

THOUGHTS OF FRIENDS

Thoughts of Friends

Thoughts of Friends was stitched on 32-count R&R Reproductions linen (Creek Bed Brown), using flosses from DMC.  Finishing was done by Valerie Leith.  Stitch count is 68 x 38.

My sister finished Lilacs as a flat-fold which isn’t truly shown in the picture above.  When I take pictures of the cover models, I like to show as much of the actual piece as I can.  I know if I am shopping for cross stitch charts, I love to see as much of the finished piece as possible.  I appreciate beautiful photo shoots but I’m looking to see what the piece actually looks like.  This is why I didn’t take a picture of the overall flat-fold finish.  But here it is, because I wanted to show off the beautiful finishing work my sister did.

Lilacs

The same applies to Thoughts of Friends.  Val finished it as an ornament.  Here is a picture to show you the pretty finish:

Thank you, Val – they are beautiful and you are beautiful.

Happy stitching, everyone.
