New Designs

I have been so busy the last couple of months! Thankfully, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am shipping out patterns for 4 new designs that will be in the next Annie's Attic Catalog. I am also finishing up the doily set pictured here (at least all the pieces are done, I still have to put them together and block them). It is a set of pineapple doilies, all of which have butterflies and Irish Roses incorporated into the design. I'm not sure yet if this will be a AA patern book or if I will self publish them.

This is my "Flower Garden Fairy Doily." I am going to frame her.

Here is my "Country Cottage Cozy." It is meant to be used as a tea cozy or to cover a cookie jar. I just think it is cute, no matter what you cover with it! I love the little kitty cat!

Here is my beautiful granddaughter, Devin, modeling my " Quick and Easy Serape." It is super easy, even for beginners.
And here is Devin in my "Easy Stitch Cape." It is so sweet and feminine, just a light, lacy touch of warmth.

Here is the Capelet version, which has crocheted roses at the closure. It is much more popular with the younger set.
It is always a relief to get a design out the door. But I am always ready to get started on the next project. After the pineapple doilies, I want to do a set of vintage look thread potholders.

I love your Flower Garden Fairy. And the serape that your beautiful granddaughter is wearing looks so do the capes.

I am looking forward to seeing more of your awesome work.
