A Question + A Sneak Peek

Would a design with the model stitched in Kreinik's Silk Mori stop you from purchasing the chart if DMC and NPS conversions were provided?

My sister Janet sent me a collection of beautiful colors, milkpaint and regular, that are very tempting to use, but I'm not sure how easy they are to find in shops.

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you!

In the meantime, here's a sneak peak at an upcoming release. There are three designs included with this chart, titled Family Tree Portraits.

A Second Contest Winner!

Congratulations to Nataly Koplovsky from Duxbury, Massachusetts!

She was the first to suggest my painting, Red-winged Blackbirds, as a cross stitch design and I think it works. In fact, Sharon Schutjer just stitched it to perfection. Nataly will be the first to receive the chart after the model is framed and the chart printed.

Nataly has been stitching since age five when her grandmother taught her how to embroider towels and pillowcases. She's currently stitching the Shores of Hawk Run Hollow (just starting block 10.) She loves all things needlework as well as shopping for antique needlework items.

Thanks again to all of you who suggested this and other paintings. I plan on trying some others that you recommended. If I like them as sampler designs, you'll be the first to receive a copy, free of charge.
