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.
t'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.
he 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.
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.
