Paisleys, Paisleys, Paisleys

Yay!! I return to work in February and am looking forward to it. I've never been off work so long before, except when I was being a mom.

Meanwhile, I have found great inspiration in paisleys produced in the 1960s and earlier. I've been spending some time converting these great fabrics to 14" and 16" pillow cover patterns and have listed them on both my Etsy and eCrater shops.

I'm also doing some more web design but healing slows down progress . I have received some wonderful feedback on the pillow designs. Some who have purchased them are going to add beading and make evening bags. 

 Even though I call these pillow cover tops, they can really be used for any inspiration you may have. I'd love to hear what you plan to do with yours and hope you will share some photos with me.

New Patterns To Share

Happy New Year!!

I have some new cross stitch designs that I'm rolling out in both my Etsy and eCrater shops over the next week or so and want to share pictures. This series of pillow cover patterns is all paisley in its wonderful variations. Some of the customers who purchased previous patterns have these terrific comments about them:

Gorgeous pattern, can't wait to make a bag with this one! Many thanks.
Fantabulous pattern and a really lovely helpful seller. I'll be back!
Absolutely amazing! I just love them! Fantastic seller, amazing communication, thanks so much!
Remember, I also do custom work and can convert not only your favorite fabric but photos to a cross stitch pattern to be worked in your choice of fabric and to create a one of a kind piece. Add beading or other embellishments and create a bag, scarf or something special for your home or as a gift for a friend.


May 2010 be your best year!!!
