Hi Karen, 

 I'm so looking forward to seeing you again in May at Celebration of NW.

Here are two more finishes of mine from your beautiful designs.Tin Tiles using an overdyed Threadwork in purples and greens and the American Quilt Flag.

Hi Karen,

I'm a huge fan of your work at Rosewood Manor. I recently finished stitching the American Flag Quilt, and I enjoyed it so much I wanted to thank you. I had to change the layout a bit because I misjudged the fabric size. But I love it anyway!

I just wanted to show you the end product and to thank you again for all the love and hard work you put into your designs.

All the best, Sarah

Hi Karen    My cross stitch patterns arrived today! I am so thrilled! I cannot wait to start stitching! I think I'll have to wait for the festive season to be over before I have the time, but I will keep in touch with you, if I may, in case I have any queries.

I love the way you have put everything together with so much thought and care: I'm thinking particularly about the Blossoms in Baltimore booklet. Thank you once again, Karen.

Have a great festive season and may 2014 be an excellent year for you in every way. Kind regards Leigh (Reynolds)


Just popping in to let you know the hanging rods arrived today. I am very pleased with them.

Here are the quilted Name Shields hangings I wanted them for. Obviously, they won't be hanging beside each other in their real home:)



Karen, Hope you don't mind my sharing this with you...I made two of your Christmas stockings for my only son and daughter in law when they were stationed in Germany. I chose them because, to me, they looked kind of 'german'.
We now have an 18mo old grandson and This year I made him the same one you made your grandson.  At thanksgiving we found out we will have another grandchild. Of course, he/she will need a stocking to go with the rest of the family's stockings.
Thank you so much for the beautiful Christmas stocking patterns you have designed. I am thrilled to have made four of them...well, after I make the one I just ordered.  Chris


I attached a picture of JoAnn Gosz and I holding the chart of Corners and Curves that we stitched for you. Neither of us realized we had both worked on versions of this and would be acknowledged on the same chart until we saw it at the shop.

 I thought maybe you'd like to see a couple of the "faces" that stitch for you.

Dear Karen,

Attached are the 2 samplers that I stitched from your patterns with the Romanian over dyed cotton floss:

“Posies for my Grandchildren” and “Golden Anniversary Garden”. The fabric for the Anniversary sampler is linen similar to that suggested by the picture on your pattern Spring Quakers. the Linen for Flowers of Rosehall is plain.

I loved doing the work! I love your designs.

Hi Karen, First, Thank you bunches for your new pattern. I LOVE it! I really like to do ones where it changes all the time and is never boring! Which your patterns never are. It was so sweet of you to think of me.

I put in 2 pictures of Past and Present. I am loving doing this one. I liked the Forest and finished it pretty much the way you designed it. This new one I am having a blast. I sure hope you don't mind me playing with your pattern. I started putting in the beautiful weaving stitches from the St Gallen sampler (from Berlin, Sabine Tartara). They were so dang small over my 36ct linen I about went blind… therefore the mom and 3 kids took up space as well as a few flowers.

Now the hardanger. I saw your good bones as a playground to do some fun specialty stitches. I put these pictures up on "Sampler World" on Face book. I also explained what I did and told the gals not to be afraid of your hardanger as it is. They are the loveliest bunch of  women! The whole of the US and Europe are represented. Lots of designers. You should join just to see what these ladies stitch! They are wonderful.

I truly love that you were so kind to send the beautiful sampler patternTake Care, Cindy   http://norskneedlework.com

Dear Karen,

Just wanted to drop a short note to tell you how much I love your designs and color choices.  I have stitched a number of your charts, but recently used several of your small motifs in a sampler I made for my mother. 

My grandmother cut out an anonymous poem from the newspaper when my mother was born.  My mother kept it all her life.  Before she died I incorporated the poem into a piece that I created using your small motifs.  The results couldn't have been lovelier.  When I had it framed, the store personnel wanted to know where I had found the pattern.  I explained how I had used your designs to accent the very old, anonymous poem, nearly 100 years old now.  The piece made my mother very happy (and me too).  Thank you for letting me "piggyback" on your wonderful talent.  I hope it was OK . . .  have attached a .jpg in case you are interested (cell phone pic, so resolution not the best - apologies)Thanks,  Dana Martin

Dear Karen,

I finished my Rosewood Manor piece in the over dyed Romanian floss. I’m calling it “Posies for my Grandchildren” because their names are at the bottom. Once I get it framed, I will take a picture with my Golden Anniversary Sampler.

Peter at Cross Stitch Station, here in Miami, does my framing. I bought both sampler instructions and floss from Janet there at Cross Stitch Station.

I loved doing the sampler.

Thank you for your inspiration!  Eileen Hoffman
