thank you, thank you, thank you! and a Twelve Days update.


Wow, guys! Thanks so much for making this annual pattern sale the best ever. I really appreciate it! Y'all have some sewing to do! Chop chop!

Many have asked if the Lady Dancing and Lord a-Leaping patterns will be out in time for Christmas crafting. My goal is to finish the Twelve Days ornament series in 2017 and I still have that clearly in my sights, but oh my dears...thanks to the move that took up my entire summer, I'm afraid I will need every last minute left of 2017 to accomplish it. I don't want to cut corners or rush the grand finale to this series and I'm sure you don't want that either! Lady Dancing is in progress now and will maybe release in time for Christmas (no promises!), but I will probably be running right up to December 31st at midnight to release Lord a-Leaping.

Thanks a million to many of you who have sent me encouraging messages and positive reviews on my patterns. You know what a huge boon that is to a micro-business, and also to me personally. It keeps me going! That and a lot of coffee. Let's do this!

  1. Thanks for everything Larissa! These will be heirlooms so I will finish the series regardless of when you do. I'd hate for you to rush something when you've spent so much time of the series as a whole. Glad to know the sale went well!

    1. Hi, KnittyLynn, No worries, if I'm not happy with them, they ain't releasing. :-) I need to finish this series for myself too, so I can move on to the 1000 other ideas I have.

  8. I've just found you via Pinterest and am so in love with your designs! Absolutely stunning.
    I hope you don't mind me mentioning this - that number four in the twelve days of Christmas rhyme is "Four Calling Birds" not Colly birds???
    I am so inspired by your stitching and design - beautiful in every way xxxx

    1. Hi, Attic24, Thanks so much! Yes, Calling Bird is what the modern song says, but the original carol from 1780 says Colly Bird! You can find more about that here:
