JCS Ornament & July~Poppies & Bees Pattern


It is definitely autumn on Gracewood and as always I can't stop looking at all its beautiful signs.  Mornings are foggy and frosty and afternoons cool and crisp, just my kind of weather ;)

The 2017 special Christmas ornament edition of Just Cross Stitch magazine is on the newstands and this was my contribution to it this year -



And I'm happy to say that I finished the model for the first design in the new Damask Calendar series of patterns - 'July~Poppies & Bees'.

July~Poppies & Bees
It is now for sale at my website Here and at  Everything Cross Stitch.  It will be available soon through my publisher outside of the US at Creative Poppy

I'll leave you with a pic of one of my favorite trees here on Gracewood in all its autumn splendor.  This green ash was just a little stick that came as a free extra when we ordered lots of plants when we first moved on Gracewood 26 years ago.  It was so small and dead looking we never expected it to thrive, but thrive it did and we love it!


Hoping your season in whatever part of the world you dwell is lovely as well!

Jasper loves Autumn too, as long as  you throw his ball!

  1. Beautiful designs as always! For the "Joy" ornament I'm thinking of stitching the background with a light purple and dark purple (to match Advent). I'm not very good at picking colors but hopefully it will turn out ok! Thanks for such great designs.
