Ideal Malloy Sampler

Yep, I'm still here.  I know it's been awhile.  I could say I've been busy.  Enjoying the last few days of Summer vacation, getting the kids prepared to go back to school, completing some long-awaited household projects, and happily stitching.  I could say that and it would be true.  But, honestly, I haven't posted simply because I haven't felt like it.  I promised myself when I began this blog, and began selling some of my designs, that it would not become a chore for me.  Stitching is the one thing I do for myself, not the children or my husband, and I am very protective of it.  I don't want to spoil my simple enjoyment of it so I refuse to adhere to deadlines.  That being said, I am sorry for having made you wait so long.  Finally, here is Ideal Malloy.

It's a slightly smaller sampler than I typically design, being only about 8 in x 10 in when finished.  It is stitched using only two colors, GA Brandy and GA Walnut on 30 ct R & R Reproductions linen.  Rather than add a verse I opted instead for the potted tulips in the lower right corner.

The pattern is available as an e-pattern only and the cost is $8.50.  I have been woefully lax in adding any of my more recent patterns to My Designs page.  I am toying with the idea of starting a selling blog or perhaps selling exclusively on Etsy.  Until I decide, however, please e-mail me if you would like to order the e-pattern for Ideal Malloy or any of my other designs. 

I do promise to be a little more present in the coming weeks.  I have two more patterns for Autumn, another free pattern as well as a small quilt and prim doll I'm working on.  I know I won't have nearly as much time as I think I will to work on these, even with the children starting school next week, but it's always good to aim for the stars just to see how far you can reach.
