Hurray hurray I finally finished packing the two new designs.  This one is THEY FOLLOW ME and it was stitched on 38 count Examplar Blend #5 using 16 colors of Weeks Dye Work threads. The stitch count on this design is 165w x 174h.

The grassy area is stitched using half cross stitch to add texture and not volume. I would like to thank Tawny from "Where Victoria Angel's Stitch" for her help in recommending her friend Susan K from NJ to stitch the model.  Thank you, Susan for such a wonderful job :) :) Your stitching is beautiful and you got it done very quickly. Also my thanks to Ingrid for picking this frame, I just love it and it goes well with the design, it is 3 1/2 inches wide. Hope you all like this design and your comments mean alot to me since this is what keeps me going :) :)

And then we have GUARDING EDEN, which was stitched on 38 count Examplar Blend #38, using 16 colors of Gentle Art Sampler Threads. The stitch count on this design is 175w x 195h.

I would also like to thank Larene D from NJ, another friend of Tawny's from "Where Victoria Angels Stitch". So thank you, Larene for your beautiful and quick stitching of this model.   I would also like my friend Kathy for frogging out A&E since I was not satisfied with the flesh tone color.

You may choose not to fill in the verse or just fill in where it say's THE LORD GOD.  That is up to the choice of each stitcher. I love my model the way it looks and it is already hanging on my A&E wall, this frame is also 3 inches wide and to me it does complement the design. I greatly appreciate your comments, since they mean alot to me and to my designing :) :)

Enjoy the rest of the summer and hope all the mother's that have their children on vacation are having a wonderful time with them.

Many blessings to all of you, Vilma

This is my new release for July, it is called "GUARDING EDEN, it was stitched on my 38 count hand-dyed linen, Examplar blend #5 and stitched with 16 colors of GAST. Also Ingrid did a great job in helping me pick this wide frame (3 inches wide) which goes well with the design.

Everything is at the printers right now and will start packing it as soon as they are ready. This model was stitched by Larene of NJ, I was not happy with the flesh tone of A&E so Kathy rip and re-stitched it with another GAST color.

I really love how this design turned out and love the verse, hope to hear your comments about this new design. Stitch area: 175W x 195H

This is the other new design which is called " THEY FOLLOW ME" which is still at the framers and Ingrid and I picked out another wide beautiful frame, but it will not be released until August since I have too much going on right now. This model was stitched on 38 count hand-dyed linen, Examplar blend #5 and stitched with 16 color of WDW. I am on the thinking wagon if I should release it or not.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer, as for me I have no idea why my summer got so busy with so much going on, I guess I really am trying to do too much on the outside instead of the inside of the house. Working in the yard, doing things and going places and working on other things that are keeping me busy. Wishing you all a wonderful summer and hope to hear from you all on your comments about this design. Not a very good picture but will post it when it is framed. Frankly I do not know what I am doing posting new releases at 4:30 AM, but then that is what happens when you take long naps since we have company and have been going out alot entertaining them, so when we get home I have been napping in the afternoons lately, so I am guilty now and staying up late, too late since I cannot sleep and we have another busy day tomorrow yikes. Better go to bed now and try to get some sleep so I don't look like a zoobie like in about five or six hours from now, So good morning everyone and blessings, Vilma
