Designs update!!

I wanted to keep you all informed about my designs, and that was and is, the primary reason for starting this blog! So I thought I had better check in with you and let you know what I have been up to!

I had originally planned to release a Christmas design this year, my first in the Emma Rose series! Some of you might remember that Emma Rose indeed did exist, she was my great-grandmother. I have always been fascinated with her, she passed away when I was a young child, but oh the memories I have of her! I am doing my best to create this series, in hopes that you can incorporate and personalize, some of the special memories you have of some of your family members!

Due to the time element, I decided to forego releasing Emma Rose Christmas this month, but she will be released...she is designed, just not yet completely stitched! I think for all of you stitchers out there, that would like to stitch this charming sampler, I could at least give you adequate time to stitch it, so I will release Emma Rose Christmas, sometime the latter part of 2010! In the meantime, I will have an introduction sampler for Emma Rose designed by the Nashville Market in February of 2010. I do have an additional sampler that I would like to do, again about Emma Rose, possibly released at that time, so I hope you bare with me!

I also have intentions to release a Noah sampler by market time and possibly another sampler, titled Sparrows! So if I get myself busy between now and then, these designs will be ready for your purchase!

I recently got signed up with Hoffman Distributing, and the patterns are really selling, have filled several purchase orders, in the last few weeks. I am so grateful there are so many of you, not only supportive of my design efforts, but also wanting to stitch them! That is my primary joy, to design pieces, that you not only love, but truly want to stitch and hang in your homes! That is what spurs me on, with my designing!

I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I will do my best to continue to please you! Thank you for following, reading and posting to my blog, I so enjoy reading your comments!

Till next time!

All my best,

Jan @ Tree of Life Samplings

Drop me a line when you have a chance. I know this is a such a busy time of year, and it sounds like you've been real busy!

Can't wait to see your new Emma Rose series. Don't you love those sort of old fashioned names, my grandmother was Audie Pearl :-).
