Work'in on it Wednesday - A new Design!

Hellooooooo! Hope you're having a fun week so far! Mine's going great and I'm so excited because I finished a new design!
Remember a few weeks ago, I showed you this sneaky peaky from my design desk?

Well, I drew the design, colored it in, added a patchwork border and sent it off to my fabulous stitching assistant, April Taylor to help me with the stitching part. Thanks so much April!

Since the bunnies don't have thumbs, they don't make good stitching assistants. Plus they are incredibly lazy and think their only responsibility is to be cute.
Ok....they totally win on that one. I am such a sucker for cuteness!!! ;)

So anyway, now that it's finished, may I introduce "The Folk Heart Tree." It measures 12" x 16". According to my poll on the right sidebar, most of you enjoy doing a combination quilting and stitching project. That is great news for me as I have lots of new designs coming your way! This is an easy pattern and coloring it in is optional. It would look great either way.
This design uses the floss from my Folk Art Floss collection. As I promised when this floss came out, I would be using it in several new patterns. To date, this is the 3rd pattern.

The pattern, the floss, and other supplies are all available in my SHOP. The bunnies and I truly appreciate all of our wonderful customers and friends and thank you very much for your support of our business.

Happy stitching and quilting to all of you! We'll see ya'll on Friday!
xx,

So cute, Shell, I just love it!! I need to get to your shop for some of your thread someday soon. I really would like to try this stitching thing. I could take that to work to do on my lunch hour.

Love all that GREEN, Shell! Actually the color scheme sort of reminds me of watermelon and summer!

H&H handle their responsibilities quite well. They probably deserve a raise.

Great colors! Do you know how hard it is to look cute 24/7? Consider the maintenance and upkeep required by Hollywood divas and count your blessings.

Lovely Shell!!

I love the design and the patchwork border goes wonderful with it. lovely choice of colors. bunnies may not be great stitchers, they know how to cut thread for you. or mess up your lay out.

Oh, Shell - This pattern is more than darling!!! It's uber-darling!! Kris

Love the new design...it is gorgeous and the colours are beautiful. I have the same problem with the canine assistant as you do with the bunnies...between her lack of opposable thumbs and general attitude that the world should revolve around her (she is currently attempting to stand on me as I type and being a 17 kilogram Kelpie that really doesn't work!!) she is not at all helpful in the stitching department...but she does very well in the cute and company keeping department...and your bunnies definitely get gold stars for cuteness...

This is beautiful. I do like a combo of quilting and stitching. I am way backed up on projects but of course I know where you are and I will be getting something to make in the future so keep 'em coming!
