Hello everyone,

Some of you may already know this, but I wanted to post an announcement for those who do not.  The "A Maryland Inspiration" chart is now available for purchase.  I am also pleased and honored to announce that the sampler has been chosen as the Attic's October Sampler of the Month, as well as one of the 2013 SALs on Ellen Chester's With my Needle and Pen forum.

The Attic in Mesa, AZ has all the supplies you will need to stitch this design, as well as the chart.  Here is a link to the website:

You can also purchase the chart from In Stitches, Alexandria, VA:
and Salty Yarns, Ocean City, MD:

I will be leading the 2013 SAL and break down the sampler into manageable and, hopefully, interesting segments to keep you stitching throughout the year.  I'm looking forward to it!

On another note, I've had requests for Belsnickle's Victorian Christmas, Mary Sophia's Pennsylvania German Sewing Set, and Stone House on the Brandywine.  These are not ready for publication yet.  I am planning a move from my house of 25 years and will probably not be able to get these charts ready until January.  I'm still not sure if I want to do Mary Sophia's ... as a teaching piece or release it as a chart with finishing instructions.  Once I am settled into my new place I will have the time, and the organization, to get most of my designs ready for publication or as teaching projects.  I am going to sign with a distributor so my designs will be available in most LNS after the new year.

In closing, I want to thank everyone for their kind words regarding my designs and for your support of my new business venture.

Yours in stitches,



  1. A Maryland Inspiration is stunning! I will have to email Atticneedlework to see if they deliver to Australia.
