Tis a Gift To Be Free Embroidery Pattern

Happy 4th of July!  I can't believe we are already celebrating the red, white and blue.  This is one of my favorite holidays because of the family celebrations I remember with our family on the farm in New York.  We would get together at the cottage on the lake and swim or fish...a little canoeing happened too.  A great picnic with potato salad (my favorite), rhubarb pie, and Grandma Brown's baked beans (thick and sweet).  We finished the night with fireworks over the water and a drive to the town firework show.  Lots of laughter and tons of fireflies....oh summer!...

Deseret Drifter Floral Embroidery Sampler

We are so excited to share with you our newest hoop-art embroidery pattern, The Deseret Drifter Floral Embroidery Sampler.  The Deseret is a term we hear in the west often.  It is associated with the values of hard work, perseverance, inspired vision and strength.  The name of this pattern, the Deseret Drifter came to me one night as I was journaling. I love reality journals, you know the journals we scribble our hopes and goals into, our honest failures and glimpses of the paths we trudge along to a better way.  The word "drifter" gives me the image of someone who...

The Farmer's Wife Barn Quilt

One of my favorite designs I have ever made was the Farmer's Wife.  You all know how much I love the Farmer's Daughter and how much I relate to being a farmer's daughter, but I'm also a farmer's wife.   I sat down with pencil and paper and graphed out a similar design to the Farmer's Daughter and fell in love with this simple pattern, the Farmer' s Wife.   The cross bars represent the anchor that a woman is to those around her with the small color design in the center being her heart.   The points of the design are directed...
