Paper Ladies for February update with some Chalk Talk

I am so thankful for portability, stitchings and prayers.
It has been a challenging week to say the least but also with it ---came
enormous blessings...

I was able to work a bit on my Paper Ladies for FEBRUARY and I settled
on some taupe floss to colour her sash in gingham pattern...
Using only 3 colours of Taupe Floss, look what is possible.

I completed her sweater, brushed her skirt, outlined both
and the results are very feminine, don't you think?

Look at her sweater, now she just got her special brush so she has not been brushed 
yet, but you can imagine how pretty she will be...
It is possible that both our ladies can switch sweaters...
hence Paper Ladies....

YOU create what you want, you can embroider them, applique and cross stitch
we show you how....we will even help you with YOUR colours
and share what would work best, if you can stitch at all

Soon, just waiting for a couple more orders to arrive
but we are going to make available to all of you
some Paper Ladies Necessity Kit...
It will have tweezers, cashmere, a specialty brush and some wipe out, 
pencil and q-tips.

We are going to share the exact tools that helps us to be better stitchers...
Just imagine the possibilities....

NOTHING could stop you from turning your Paper Ladies into anything you like
or you could choose the same colours that both Cori and I have chosen...

I will be stitching more of her today , I still have her back bow to do, and her box of flowers..
my goal is to complete her by the weekend, so we can show you our MARCH Paper Ladies..

As spring is around the corner, my daisies are still in bloom and remind me to keep 
hope alive! 

I also have been working on this project, it is a tender sweet message and one
I hear a lot these days, I am sure many of you will find this message 
one you can live by too...

These will be perfect for new stitchers of any age...
they are done with 1-2 floss only! 
They will be in kits or just the pattern.

I will share more soon!

Spring arrived at least in our home today.
Such a delightful surprise from a very special someone...
I am so in the PINK now ....xx
