Once again, I have finished one of your stunning designs. This design was a large project, but a pleasure to see the progress as it came along. I was so happy that I got to meet you at the Celebration of Needleworks last year in Kentucky and it was a pleasure to chat with you.
Hi Karen! I thought you might like to see my latest project using your Red Threads chart. I have been making name plates for families and friends and they have been a big hit. Recently, my friend celebrated the first birthday of her tripets. Yes,Triplets! Here is a picture of the name plates I did for them and the lovely way their mom decided to display them. I feel honored. Robin L
Ann McDonald from Knowledge & Needles held a stitching retreat/class using Rosewood Manor’s “YE OLD SAMPLER BAG” design. Each person in the class selected their own fabric and floss for their bags. They could also add their own touch for finishing and select the motifs to stitch, making each bag unique. Fun was had by all! These are just a few of the bags created.
After holding this pattern for one year, I started it on Feb. 4th, 2010 and finished it on June 4th 2010. I stitched it on Vintage mocha 25 ct. I used Cresent Colors Cupid. My friend and business partner framed it and it was hanging on the wall Tuesday afternoon.
We have a cross stitch, framing and quilting shop in Northeast Al. I love all your patterns and we sell alot of them.
We have a stitching group that meets on Thursdays at our shop. At this present time we have 4 of our stitchers working on various projects from Rosewood Manor. There were constant "watchers" while I was stitching the ABC's. I guess they were then motivated to have a large (not huge) project themselves. During the four month project, we had an ongoing game that was played as I stitched--Guess the Motif--for the letter of the day and any others I completed during the previous week. Therefore, this project was enjoyed by everyone.
Thanks again for the wonderful patterns.

Several years ago I went to a stitcher’s retreat held at the Higher Ground Conference Center in West Harrison, Indiana. At this retreat was a Rosewood Manor trunk show and the ‘As Ye Sow’ sampler was on display. I absolutely fell in love with the stitched model, purchased the pattern with hopes to start and complete it that year. Sadly it found its way to the back of my stash and other pieces became priority.
Today, I’m writing to let you know it finally made it out of my stash and I completed it earlier this summer after working on it off and on for two years.
In September, I entered my As Ye Sow sampler in the county fair and received a blue ribbon! A fair visitor was so impressed with the finished piece that she asked the Arts and Crafts manager to give me her name and contact information because she wanted to purchase the pattern and stitch this piece.
Here is a picture of my finished blue ribbon sampler. Thanks for creating this lovely design; it is hanging proudly in my foyer for everyone to see when they enter my home!
