Someday I hope life will slow down...just a bit!

Well, this has been a very busy, hectic and stressful couple of months at the Dunton residence. We had to buy a new dishwasher (the bottom pan got a hole in it and leaked water everywhere!); repossess and deal with an old motor home that no longer was driveable, and get it towed to a place where we can someday recycle everything; take care of a very ill daughter for two weeks when Amy got an abcessed wisdom tooth (never thought I would ever have to learn to change IV's!); and then deal with plumbing problems, which forced us to move out of the house for a couple days. Just all seems to prove the old adage, it never rains but pours!!! I'm tired. Exhausted. Overwhelmed. In all of this, we were trying hard to get two new designs to the printers, but kept running into obstacles with the cover photos not printing correctly!
So now for some good news! Lacey Thread Designs has published two new leaflets!

The first one is called Sunglow Memories. Display your favorite pictures in a gorgeous memory frame, using unique and creative corner photo holders. Photos can be easily exchanged as desired without having to reframe each time. Stitched with basic hardanger (NO cutting!), and pulled thread stitches, detailed directions for the corner photo holders are included.

The second design is My Child's Heart. It is an exquisite birth sampler containing hardanger, pulled thread, specialty stitches, and ribbon embroidery. This sampler could also be easily customized as a wedding sampler, or stitched without words as a band sampler. A Mother of Pearl heart bead is included with each leaflet.These two beautiful designs are available at our website:
