Smooth Sailing, New Design

Happy August!!
August is almost gone and September is on the way but I just dont want to let summer go yet!
I have a small design that I finished called "Smooth Sailing", 
I did post a peek before and told you that it was small but had potential.
Smooth Sailing from By The Bay

"Smooth Sailing" cross stitch design with POTENTIAL for more!! haha
The above photo is the potential :)
I just couldn't resist doing more with this little design, so I cut around the outer edges, fray checked them and added it to a piece of upholstery fabric I had. Took some brown wool and added a tree, cut out some green for the leaves, added wool rocks for the ground with some sea grass.
 I wanted to bring in the same colors from the design into the forefront so I made some wool roses to tuck in between the rocks, I have some small pieces of Serenity Harbor fabric so I used that also by tracing some small hexagons, cut them out, and attached around the very bottom of the scene. 
Cant forget the clouds and sun...wool yarn couched down for the clouds and the center of the sun was some weaving with floss and very long lazy daisy stitches for the rays. 
OH! I almost forgot the seagull, wool and embroidery...
I did finish it as a small quilted wall hanging and it is hanging from a tree branch...It was FUN!!
SO IF YOU want to try your imagination too, I have included the template for the tree, leaves, rocks, hexagons, and bird with the charted cross stitch for "Smooth Sailing", you can have FUN too.
This design will be available for shipment to shops by the end of next week and in the Etsy shop the week after. :)

If you like the simplicity of the small design it measures 3 x 5 if stitched on 28ct linen over (2)
 or 14 ct Aida, 
it will fit great in a 4 x 6 frame. 
The stitch count is 42 x 68, Stitched on 28ct lambswool linen

Out of Pendants


Good day everyone, I sent a newsletter out yesterday about the "Stitch An Inch"
designs, and the Etsy shop just ran out of stock on the Pendants, I will have more in the shop by the end of next week., I've been busy on another "Stitch An Inch" design...

I will share more soon 💗
I think I feel Fall in the air...how about you!!
Not a recent picture but I love the scene :)

Some Goodies in Etsy and "Stitch An Inch" Wild HAHA

Happy Tuesday 

I added some pendants last night to the Etsy shop, The design "Heart To Heart" uses the heart pendant and I listed some in Antique Silver and Antique Copper..I have also made a
  free design to go with the purchase of a pendant
...Here is the one for the "Heart"

Also there is a listing for the "Stitch An Inch" Square Pendants. 
The listings are for Antique Silver and Antique Copper.

These are great for all of the "Stitch An Inch" designs. They can be used for ornaments, necklaces, scissor fobs, anything you can think of. Great for small gifts!

You need to stitch these on 28ct linen over (1) linen thread for them to be 
"ONE INCH" a
and fit into the Pendants but don't despair you can stitch them on 14ct Aida and make them perfect
 "TWO INCH" designs, 

These are great for all of the same finishes except they will not fit into the Pendants at that size. :(
So if you like to stitch SMALL but not to Small the "Stitch An Inch" options are a great idea!!

With the purchase of a Square Pendant I do have a free design also
Here is the one for the "Square"

These Free designs are limited to the supply and the season, this one is for Fall, 
I will order more Pendants and change up the free designs with the seasons :)
Happy Stitching
hugs 
donna
