For a while it seemed like these pirate designs took over my entire life…lucky for my sanity, I have a new series coming mid-March featuring angels…but more on that later!
I’m not saying that there won’t be more pirates…as you can see here, there are still more in my design file. It’s amazing how circuitous a design can be…a friend gave me one idea (that hopefully can be used eventually if I can find a rum bottle charm), that evolved step by step into a whole new design “Burnt to Perfection”. So the final design, is often a surprise to me!
I think “Burnt” will be a great seller, especially for Father’s Day, don’t you think?
PS157 Burnt to Perfection
And with record breaking snowfalls this year, I thought the pirate snowman was the perfect stitch while we sit waiting for Spring to arrive! When our family was deciding on where we wanted to live after my husband retired from 22 years of military service, we decided to settle here in Virginia. We wanted the change of seasons and the little bit of snow we experienced here in two tours at Fort Lee. So, that was more that 20 years ago, and aside from a few minor snowfalls over the years, there was just no snow! Well this year makes up for it! We have literally piles of snow everywhere and so far, I still love it! L432 Shiver Me Timbers
These two designs are going to be introduced at the Nashville Market next week and your favorite shop should have them soon after that! Enjoy the stitch!
