Little Hands, Tiny Feet - Baby Cross Stitch Pattern

Finally!  It's only taken me more than 3-1/2 years to get around to stitching the models for this design I originally released in January 2013.  The pattern contains both colorways, for the boy & girl versions.  It's a relatively quick stitch (especially if you leave of the "dotted" background) and would make a great gift for someone's new baby.



Of course the fantastic finishing was done by Rita at SnowBerry NeedleArts.  And I surprised an old co-worker of mine by sending her the boy version model for her miracle baby, Noah.

Until the next time...Happy Stitching!

Stitch From Stash - June through September 2016 Recaps

OK, I'll make this short, sweet & to the point catching you up on the last 4 months of my stash diet.

Stitch From Stash - June 2016 Recap

Finishes = $15.00
Purchases = $10.22

I'm actually quite impressed with myself, considering June is the month that my LNS (local needlework shop) has it's anniversary sale, and I managed to keep my spending under control.

I did purchase 2 pieces of fabric from the Picture This Plus Christmas in July sale, but that won't count towards purchases until it ships and is charged to my credit card.  I'd better get busy stitching to offset those dollars!!

Moose Silhouette Cross Stitch Pattern

Today I'll be sharing my Moose Silhouette.  This particular design was requested by Shelby, who follows my Facebook page, as something to stitch that would match her kitchen decor.   I stitched my model using DMC #315 on a 25 count Lugana fabric in "Mushroom" by Zweigert. 

If you're interested in this design, you can purchase it at any of these places.





Until the next time...Happy Stitching!

Irish Wolfhound Silhuette Cross Stitch Pattern

I've been remiss in posting here for quite awhile.  My only excuse is after spending all day on the computer at my full-time job, I have zero desire to be on the computer nights and weekends.  I pretty much turn on my laptop at home 2 or maybe 3 times a month anymore.  And since I've released a few new patterns in the past couple of months, I'm going to spread out the posts over several days so I'm not bogging down anyone's email that subscribes to notifications.



Today I'll be sharing my Irish Wolfhound Silhouette.  This particular design was requested by Anita from Stitches From the Heart in San Antonio, TX while I was at their stitching camp in March.  It was a joy to stitch.  I stitched my model using DMC #645 on a 28 count Lugana fabric in "Haven" by Picture This Plus.  I loved this fabric so much, I plan on buying more to use with future designs!

If you're interested in this design, you can purchase it at any of these places.




Until the next time...Happy Stitching!

Stitchnmomma's Shirts - Cross Stitch T-Shirts

In an effort to continue building the Stitchnmomma brand, last weekend I launched a t-shirt shop that will contain quite a few of my stitched designs (Modern Dictionary series & some of my quotes) along with just some other general fun shirts.  Most everything will be related to cross stitch, but there will be some other fun designs.

I plan on adding 2 or 3 new designs each weekend.  In addition, whenever I release a new cross stitch design that can easily be converted to a t-shirt, I will add the shirt to my shop at the same time.

As of Sunday 06/26/16, these are the designs currently available:








Each design will be available in a variety of shirt styles, colors and sizes.  There will also be stickers available to match each design.  If you're interested in getting one or more of these shirts, simply click HERE to go to my shop.

As always, thanks for looking and Happy Stitching!
