Well goodness, I can't believe I'm leaving in just a few days for the St. Charles market, and I haven't even gotten a blog preview posted! As some of you know, I've been madly in love with bees lately… so much so that three of my six new market releases will be honeybee-themed!
I just can't help myself!
So to start out the preview-parade (ahem), the first sampler I'll show here is one that features a verse by Isaac Watts… and who hasn't wanted a pet rooster?
Stitch Count: 222(w) x 161(h)

The Gentle Art threads used (with DMC equivalents in parentheses):
Mountain Mist (523)

The absolutely gorgeous frame was done by none other than Sherri Berkman at Total Framing in Virginia!
I'll be back soon with another market preview. In the meantime, I hope you're finding lots of other previews and sneak peeks online that you're calling your shop owner about… I tend to show a few things and hold a few things back, just because I never know if people like the pre-order with their shop, or if they simply love to be surprised! I may end up just showing them all on Friday night though, just before the early-bird portion of the market opens. 🙂
I can't wait!
