Here's the latest News at Creative Stitchery

June 2016

Look for my new mermaid and seashell pattern at my Etsy store and at Patternmart. This is an updated version of the old mermaids and shells pattern but only has one mermaid and shell. There are a lot of new things about this version. She has wool hair cut from a mohair skin, the tail is slightly different in shape and has wire sewn to it so you can shape it however you like, and of course the way she is dressed/decorated is different. The shell is larger and is decorated different, too. I made her in orange batik for a gold fish look but she's pretty in any fabric.

I have a new crochet pattern up at my Etsy store. Look for Crochet Lucky Penny Shamrock. This is a cute way to give a good luck charm to a friend. Use a penny with a date that's special to them. It's pretty easy to make but you do need to know how to crochet since I don't give those kind of directions. This pattern is only available as a PDF download because I wanted to keep the price low. With all the photos I would have to charge a lot more than 3.50. A flower will be up soon.

Big News! I finally finished the last tatting pattern in the Season of Mini Quilts series. Look for the Summer pattern at my Etsy store, Patternmart, and at ebay. Since I don't have a store at ebay I have to list them and then relist when they expire. If you don't see it listed contact me thru ebay or etsy and ask that I list it for you. Right now I'm only listing the PDF version because I still need to order cover pics for the printed versions.

Since I don't sell from these web sites anymore I'm seriously thinking about shutting them down and just keeping my blog and facebook pages. I'll keep the home page and free patterns up but the rest would go. It's more work than I want to do to update the web site.

Go to my Free Paterns link and get free pdf downloads for two 2016 calendars. One has each page separate for printing and the other is one page with all 12 months on it.

You can now buy Handy Hands version of my Tatting Old Fashioned Quilt Patterns called Tatted Quilt Squares at my Etsy store and at Handy Hands. It's glossy and has full colored photos and charts. As of Nov. 2015 Handy Hands placed my book at Hobby Lobby stores. I don't know how long they'll carry it so if you have a local store look for it.

I've been listing favorite things at Pinterest. Have you been there yet? It's a great place to get lost in. I easily lose hours going from board to board.

Look for my Halloween Cat pattern in the Nov. 2012 issue of Soft Dolls & Animals. The hat pattern is missing and should be in another issue but if you can't wait contact me and I'll email them to you. Please

I've finished updating all the pages here at webs. To buy anything I sell you'll find links to the places I sell at. I no longer sell directly because it's so much easier to sell thru places like Etsy where they have automated check-out.

PDF's are available for all of my patterns. They are at the Patternmart site, some are at Etsy, and I try to list some at ebay. If you don't want to buy at Pattermart let me know and I can put up a listing for you at Etsy or Ebay.

I made a free pattern! It's a cloth basket that's perfect for tatting supplies, though I've also used mine to hold small crochet projects and I have one for small sewing projects. Look for the link on the free patterns page. Oh, this one is a PDF file so you'll need a reader like Adobe to open it. I even got a link at about it! Go to my blog to read about it and find the link for the download.

I wrote a column for the online magazine Creative Times. Hope you'll have a look at it, it's free!

If you ever get one of my patterns and it's missing pages please contact me. If you send an email and don't hear from me it may be that it has been caught with my spam filter. Please try to contact me by calling, writing, or thru my ebay or etsy stores.
