Secret revealed!!

In a much earlier post I alluded to a secret that I was stitching on. Well, as so often in the world of needlework, the final "reveal" can take FOREVER!! I am ready to tell you! I have been a publisher of doll and craft patterns for nearly 8 years now, a business that has been both fun and a lot of hard work. I have decided to turn my designing to needlework, as it has always been my first love, and something I always come back to, no matter where else I seem to go creatively.
I have finished up the stitching on my first model, and I am about 1/2 way through my second. My first piece is a brides box with a colonial theme. I am finishing up the charting now. I cannot say when it will be ready for release, as I still have to send it to the photographer, and finalize the business paperwork. I am so excited, and I hope you are excited too! I have so many ideas and designs floating around in my head, I can't help but feel really envigorated by this new venture! Here is a small sampling of my bride box, just a small teaser to give you an idea!!
