Ann Grant sneak peek...


OK, just to tease y'all, here is the Ann Grant reproduction FINISHED! I'll be picking the frame up tomorrow (hopefully), stretching and photographing it, and then I can pack graphs. It is beyond wonderful. The colors are awesome, and I even got to do some of the stitching. My model stitcher put in about 32,000 stitches, and I put in another 6,000 or so (I did the over-one verse and a few of the motifs), so it was a team effort. This one is FUN to stitch, and it is just a quintessential sampler. It's got a house, birds, a beautiful tree, strawberries, and an Algerian Eye alphabet. Plus, red, pinks, olive greens and browns? It's drool-worthy.

I'll be posting an update before I go to market of ALL of my new designs (there will be eight or so.) Wish me luck in getting everything framed, printed and packed. This is a super-fun time of year for me, and I appreciate your support. :)

You know, ever since you mentioned the Ann Grant sampler the first time, each time you post on your blog, I check back to see if there's an update on this gorgeous sampler. And today, I was rewarded!! It looks so inviting. I really can't wait to see the pattern(s) that you offer for this one, Theresa. Simply lovely!!
