Ragged Thymes ~ HeartString Embroidery

Friday new release embroidery designs

It’s Friday! Yeaaa – long weekend ahead! 🙂  Anyone plan on swimming?  Here in Ohio it’s always iffy – if it’s warm enough and the water doesn’t have a layer of ice on it! lol  Our pool is just about filled and it’s got a heater…so maybe…  lol  We all know my kids will be right in it, blue lips and everything.  Don’t ya sometimes wish you were still a kid and had no fear.  I wonder if I could still ride a bike… hmmm  lol

Anyway – new releases today at HeartStrings Embroidery.  There’s also a new freebie – applique fishing lure.


Farm Blocks – 4 square.  So many uses!  I did mine in 1 color because I like the look.  Great for applique on towels or a quick and easy wall hanging.


This Olde Crows has worn himself out and crashed – right into my favorite summer food – watermelon! lol



Bless Our Nation – great companion to last week’s Olde Glory!

Everyone have a wonderful long weekend and on monday, take a second out to remember those that have come before us in the USA to fight for our freedom.  Say a Thank You and special prayer for them 🙂

HUGS & Happy Stitching



New embroidery designs..

Happy Thursday everyone 🙂  It’s a beautiful day here in Ohio and here I sit inside making embroidery designs 🙂  Windows are open and I have a wonderful breeze blowing through the house.  Memorial Day weekend weather looks good.  I bet my kids get in the pool even though I know it’s going to be COLD!  Oh, the joy of being a kid.

I put up 3 new designs on HeartStrings today.  Americana and Grandma and Grandpa.  You can never have too much Americana I think 🙂  I haven’t snapped pictures yet, sorry about the computer generated pictures.

Gone Fishing Dangler Embroidery Design

Oh I took a step away from the Prim world today and made an adorable, easy, in the hoop project for Father’s Day.  My hubby loves to fish (I just don’t ‘get’ it but oh well, that’s why they created books) so I thought he would like this for Father’s Day.  He saw it on the computer screen this morning and asked if he was getting one.  I took that as an atta-girl! 🙂 

This was a breeze to stitch!  The sign is free-standing applique and the lures are stitched on plain ole backing.  Get creative with the hangers – use paperclips, fishing line or invisible thread or small guage wire. 

You can find these great new dangler projects in my New Release Category at http://www.heartstringsembroidery.com/catalog/

New Embroidery Designs ~ Father’s Day Sampler

HeartString Embroidery’s ever growing catalog grew again yesterday.  We add new designs every friday 🙂

I know Dad will just love this sampler stitched and framed (guess who is getting the one I stitched…lol).  The Summer Sampler coordinates with our Exclusive Spring Sampler and I love willow trees and saltbox so I really love the Watch Sampler. 

PrimiStitch Club Designs for May

Wow – 2 posts in one day…what’s wrong with me!  🙂  Now don’t get spoiled cuz this won’t happen often – if ever again!  lol

PrimiStitch Club designs just went out!  If you love prim and country machine embroidery designs – you need to check out this club.  You never know what I’ll send out each month 🙂 and the surprise is half the fun.  The members call it a present in their mailbox every month.  What’s better than that?  This month there is a BONUS…but I’m not giving any hints 🙂

Happy Friday

It’s friday, yea yea yea!  It’s been a long week here.  Between cleaning, packing, working and everything else – I’m tired!  🙂  Think I could sleep all day. 

Today PrimiStitch Club goes out.  I hope everyone enjoys this month’s designs.  And new releases on HeartStrings Embroidery.  Released a few new ones the other day but have a couple more like a summer sampler and saltbox sampler.  Ya’ll know I’m partial to saltbox houses. 

This weekend we’re going to take a load to the new house and get that put away before we start moving big stuff.  The kids having school until june 3 is really messing up my plans! lol  Wish they got out 2 days after Memorial Day like they have the last couple years.  Oh well – it’ll all work out 🙂  It is nice to move something and put it away right away.  Much less mess that way 🙂  But, moving in stages is a pain for sure. 

I’m really excited about our ‘new’ house!  Can’t wait for summer and the pool!!!  Gonna love that 🙂  Wonder how many laps I’ll have to swim to fit into my skinny jeans!  I don’t think there’s any pool long enough…rofl 

Everyone have a great friday and stitch something fun!!!
