Guess what?! The new Halloween releases were delivered by the printer earlier this week, and we have sent out tons of them to our loyal needlework shops this afternoon. If by some chance, you don't receive my monthly newsletters or are not part of my Friends of JBW Designs group on Facebook, then you'll need to see these new designs! I seem to have been intrigued with the color black this time, but you must agree - it works if you're stitching either the French Country Black Cat, French Country Crow, French Country Ghost, or The Witch's Hat. But never hesitate to change the fabrics and fibers in my designs. It's always fun to see your inspirations.
Not only have I been working on Halloween patterns since April, but the new Christmas designs have been completed.
There will be six new designs released in early September at the Harvest Hop which is an online show for needlework shops. The shop owners will be buying from many designers at that time, as the Fall and Christmas seasons tend to be the best selling months.
You'll be the first to hear about the new designs. There are three small stockings in a new series call, "Sing A Song of Christmas." Each one features a phrase from a popular holiday tune. In addition, I'll have another red and white design, a folk art Christmas tree, and a 2016 Limited Edition Ornament Kit.
It's a wonder I have time to do anything else, but I do take time to work on our gardens, go boating with the grandchildren, and enjoy each day when we can eat out on the porch.
I'm grateful for so many blessings in my life, and hope that you too find time for relaxation after your busy work days.
With kindest regards,
