Happy Easter, a new pattern and wonderful news!

Happy Easter everyone!  I hope you've had a wonderful day.  

Brunch with my family and an Easter Egg hunt with Zoey made my day perfect.  How I love that little girl.  And my wonderful news is that Zoey has a new baby brother or sister on the way!  Yep!  I'm going to be a grandma again......probably late November, early December. I can't wait!

My son just updated my website with my newest pattern called Schoolgirl Stitches.  This is a 4-in-one pattern of 4 very sweet marking samplers made by 4 very charming little girls who attended the Sugargrove School in Warren County, Ohio in 1837. 

 It is true that Sissy, Becca, Lottie and Mercy are figments of my imagination, but they have definitely taken on a life of their own.  There is a little story for each one and their marking samplers truly reflect their personalities.  These sweet designs are all stitched on 32 count linen and they all fit in a 5 X 7 frame.......doesn't get any easier than that!

The Sugargrove School, however, is a real place that existed in a much simpler time.

I'm in the process of adding my first group of Finished Goods to my Etsy store and should have them posted within the hour.   The 1st of my "smalls" that I talked about in my last post, are called "Friendship Smalls" and are almost finished.  I'll send a sneak peek sometime next week!

That's about all I have for now.  Enjoy the rest of this beautiful day and remember...
from wherever you may dwell, I wish you peace and wish you well.
