New patterns

My dear Stitchers,

I am very busy packing everything all up and finishing things for the wonderful needlework event I am participating this September: Fili Senza Tempo in Italy.   I haven't been to any event for some time now due to my photography works, so I am very-very excited to go!:-)

I will bring many new designs, some have been released lately:

One old, one new:-)

My dear Stitchers,

I hope you are doing well and going to have a great summer with lots of stitching time!:-) 

I spend lot of time with my new love:  photography (by the way, it is me on the picture with an old beautiful machine:-)  The interesting thing is that since I have started to learn professional photography in 2016 and I focus a lot in cameras as I shot loads every week, my eyes turned sharper! The doctor even had to change the diopters of my glasses/contact lenses, can you believe that?  I think I found the perfect job to improve my eyes to my cross stitching!:-)  Well... I still have to use a magnifier lamp in the evening as 40 count is still my favourite. 

This year The Snowflower Diaries will travel to Italy this September, I hope to meet many of you, darling!

I have released a long awaited pattern today, Pure Love for your request.  This pattern has been first published in a JCS magazine in 2015 and you have been keeping asking me to publish it one day.  Link

Tomorrow I will bring you a brand new patriotic pattern, this will be my first patriotic pattern as a respect for my lovely-lovely stitching friends in the USA who I miss very much!:)

Happy stitching!

Dear Stitchers,

We have arrived to the finish of my primitive cross stitch calendar, Joyful World.
Tonight, before the clock hits midnight, I release the pattern of the last month, December. I am happy and sad at the same time.   Designing and creating this calendar became part of my life, almost like a job I love.

According to my filofax notes, designing (in 20+ languages), stitching, photoshooting, photoshoping, pattern making, releasing, promoting this calendar needed 121 days in 10 months, mainly the evening hours.

I have started releasing the first month this January in 2016 and hoped for some folks to come by and join the stich along of this calendar pattern I designed for my children.  I expected 30+ participants, most of them friends who are too nice to say no:-)   Today, November 10, 2016 there are 6.481 members in our Facebook group dedicated to this SAL.   You can guess that I am in shock for many months now.

I am happy we have done it, because we have done it together: I would have not been able to finish stitching it if it was not you who all come to join from all over the world!   This design (among with others) would have laid in my desk till the end of time on sheets of paper.

Thank you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Stitching!:-)
