April Releases and more........

I know there are still people who check my blog even though we just topped 10,000 likes on Facebook.  That number is staggering!  I guess that means I've been doing this for a while!!  

We just shipped two designs to the distributors.  First is the newest Hometown Holiday, the Schoolhouse.  This one reminds me of my own childhood while living in the Midwest.  I really wanted to put a boy in the design with his tongue stuck to a flag pole but I decided against it.  :)  


Doesn't the plaid fabric make a perfect match?  Vonna does such a great job on these flat finishes.  They work really well in an easel or hung from a knob.

The second one is inspired first by the former president, Franklin Roosevelt and second by Norman Rockwell.  It's titled "Four Freedoms" and taken from the State of the Union address in 1941.  Norman Rockwell created awesome paintings of the Four Freedoms.


So the last little something I have to share with you is a free chart.  I made it for myself then decided to share it for free with anyone who would like to stitch it.  Sometimes life isn't easy and I go looking for Scripture verses or inspirational quotes.  This one pops up all of the time over the internet and reminds me of who I am and provides a source of strength when life seems to be teetering on the edge.

I'm offering it as a blessing to anyone who wishes to receive it.



Happy Stitching,
Diane

  21. Thank you so much for this free design. I need it right now in my work station to keep me focussed on reality rather than imaginings... and perhaps to help me to remember, with humility and thankfulness, my place in the scheme of things.
