Please join us for the fun at the Counted Wishes Cross Stitch Festival. Here are my newest designs I have in the show. Hope you will take time to stop by and order that pattern "you can't live without". :)
"CAUTION--THE CATS!" DOOR HANGER~~ A definate stitch for all households owned by "indoor" cats. They can look charming, innocent and at times pathetic, as they wait by the door for their chance to sneak out of the house and have an outdoor adventure. These 2 whimsical looking cats, along with their lil grey mouse friend, will try their best to hide by the door for that split second chance at freedom! Those entering/exiting cat households must always proceed with caution!!
"THE CAT--CAUTION!" DOOR HANGER ~~ An alternative piece for those single cat families! How many times have you heard "Don't let the cat out!" No matter how convincing the furball may be, always remember this caution!!!
"FOUR CATS & A MOUSE!" ~~ 4 whimsical cats along with their lil friend, the grey mouse, are mischievously sitting in front of a white picket fence laced with green ivy leaves. What are they up to?? From the middle "grey tiger striped" cat to the friends joining him; an orange tabby, a pumpkin colored tiger and a small black and white kitten, their impish yet innocent smiles makes one wonder, just what are they thinking? or planning?
"BRING ON SPRING" ~~ You know winter has been toooooooo long when even the snowmen are ready for spring! A comically unhappy snowman, with his shades of green hat and scarf, has had enough of snow. He's wishing all the crystalized pretties would go away because he's frozen and his snowballs are freezing!
"TEA FOR THREE" ~~ Three best friends spend an lovely spring afternoon, sharing secrets and laughter over tea and cookies under a freshly bloomed tree. A little girl *inspired by my granddaughter* is dressed in her Sunday best, including her straw hat and big pink bow. She is joined at her enchanting tea table with her best friends, Mr. Rabbit dressed in his damper bow tie and Mrs. Bear. All three are enjoying their cookies and tea while surrounded by fluttering butterflies, chirping birds and a squirrel hoping for a crumb or 2! This is an adorable chart for any daughter or grand-daughter.
"THINK SPRING" ~~ The Easter Bunny is coming! This charming brown bunny is thinking and planning spring. He's sitting on the edge of flower box which contains a yellow and a red "just bloomed" tulips. Joining him are a few colorful butterflies and 2 friendly robins.

"AFTER 50" ~~ Does life begin at 50? A quick to stitch whimsical sampler claims for all stitchers who are 50+. No *red hats* here, just an ol' fashioned coffee pot, with it's heavenly scented aroma wafting through the air, along with dainty flowers and ivy leaves. After all, after 50, all that does perk is the coffee :) Thank you Linda S. for stitching this so nicely for me.
