My New Designs

I am happy to show you my first two designs under The Scarlett House. 


This one is called Coverlet Birds.  The models were stitched on 40ct. Earth linen from Crossed-Wing Collection using NPI silk.  I have always loved antique coverlets, and that is where I drew my inspiration from.


And this is Death By Candy Corn.  I used a favorite 40ct. linen of mine called Days Gone By and it is charted for DMC.  The candy corns are stitched over one, but can be done over two. 

The charts will be available on Friday at The Attic, and hopefully in other shops eventually. 

Special thanks to:
      Margaret Chess for her expert stitching of the framed piece. 

Vonna Pfeiffer for finishing the pin keeps so beautifully.

Priscilla's Pocket for the perfect frame.
