Monthly Musings….

Happy New Year, my sweet stitching friends.

I am so excited to think  about what the New Year will bring.  Now that the website is ‘officially’ launched,  I will be able to concentrate on reaching out to more of you, to inspire, encourage, and provide you with the most current needlework charts available.

Check the site often in January for some ‘new’ products  that I am pretty excited about.   There will be patterns as well as stitching linens that will be unique.

March will bring the Nashville show that designers are always thrilled to attend to display their new projects.  I will certainly be attending to see what great patterns they’ve created for us.  Besides, I have never been to Nashville and this is a great opportunity to hear some great music and check out some new, wonderful, unique cross stitch patterns, two of my favorite things to do. Wouldn’t it be way cool if in 2018 I was not only a buyer but a designer as well at the Nashville show.  Dream big, right?  So many ideas, so little time. I already have begun my first design but will be honest with you, the software is not very ‘user friendly.’ I have it designed on paper, but now to get it in a form that makes sense to you all…therein lies the challenge.:-)

So, in my mind, 2017 is going to be SUPERB! And I hope you agree.

Check out the Princess’s website, if you haven’t already.  AND for special notices of new products, sales, and free charts, please sign up for the newsletter, Princess Proclamations.

Don’t Miss Out!

Thank you all for the great ‘kick-off’ of my online retail store.  It is truly overwhelming.

If you haven’t already signed up for the newsletter, make sure you do.  I will be offering a

free counted cross stitch pattern that will only be available through the newsletter.

I am keeping this very short because Christmas is right around the corner and we are all

extremely busy…

May the peace of this Holy Season be upon you and yours.

Merry Christmas, my friends

I feel so connected to you all, sharing our common love for hand work, especially counted cross stitch.  It’s at this time of year that we take a moment to reflect on our blessings and I consider myself blessed to be able to do what I truly love to do.  The Princess and the Peddler had been a long time coming and I can actually see it just around the corner.  Tuesday, actually.

As my thanks to all of you, here’s a little something that I hope you enjoy, courtesy of The Primitive Hare.

Peace and all good things.




It’s Here, It’s Here!!

Well, someone once said, good things come to those who wait.  I’ve been waiting, and waiting, …..and waiting.

And at long last, December 20th will be our first day of going LIVE with our online retail store. We are offering patterns for prim and vintage counted cross stitch patterns, wool applique, rag quilts, kits, and the list goes on. Additionally, we will be offering tutorials, articles, tips, stitch-a-longs, clubs. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter and be some of the first to know about what’s happening at the ‘castle’.  LOL.

I need to keep this post short because I’m getting ready for the ‘grand opening’.  I do want to wish you all a blessed holiday season and very, very happy new year!

Oh, I almost forgot.  Here’s my gift to you.  Remember, right click, then print.


See you soon, my friends.
