PrimiStitch Club embroidery designs out!!!

Wow – it was a rough month this month but I managed to get PrimiStitch Club designs out, only 3 days late!  lol  I knew saturday was the 14th and tuesday was the 17th but somehow missed the fact that the 15th fell somewhere in the middle… 

…to top that – my website got hacked and that threw me into a tail-spin.  What purpose did some idiot have to come into my site and post all kinds of stupid code all over my pages?  I mean really don’t they have anything better to do than mess with those of us hard-working folks???  Yea I’m pretty ticked and upset about it. 

Anyway – this is my monthly embroidery design club.  Every month you get 10 great prim and country type designs.  It’s starting it’s third year!  I was afraid it wouldn’t get past the first 3 months!  lol


Well I hope everyone has a great thursday!  It’s Survivor and CSI night!!!  It’s mom’s night to veg out, eat popcorn and watch some tv!  I look forward to thursday night all week!!

Happy Stitching,  Stephanie

New designs this week…

Hi Everyone!  It’s snowing in Ohio!  And I mean snowing!  They’re calling for 7 inches by tomorrow morning.  Sounds like a good time to curl up with the sewing and embroidery machine and finish some of these UFOs. I would love to get the wall hanger done with the quilt blocks from last, ummm, spring…lol  But than again I’m reading a really good Grisham novel so maybe popcorn and a book are called for instead.
So far I’m doing well on my resolution to use my blog! 🙂 Not sure if I’ve said anything worth reading so far, but hopefully I will at some point <giggle>
This week’s designs are a hodge-podge.  No real theme. There’s a new Simple Saltbox Mat to coordinate with the other Simple Saltbox designs. And of course there are the snowmen that I promised. I really like our frosty friends this week. The Willow and Ewe design has joined the ranks as one of my favorites of all time.
We’re excited on the Prim Embroidery Forum about Valentine’s Day!  We set up a Valentine’s Swap!  If you want to join us, please stop on over and register.
Have a great week and may blessings be yours 

 This adroable sheep and willow has joined my all thyme favorite list.  I love this design!!!

It’s Thursday… busy busy

Filed under: Chatter | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

It’s Thursday…I know… so what!  There’s a thursday every week…lol  Thursday in the world of me means designs to get ready for friday release.  It’s stitching and snapping pictures, converting designs and zipping, uploading and writing listings.  It’s a busy day for me. 

 Today, so far, has been even more busy than normal.  I wrote an article for Stitches Magazine that I hope to get published.  It’s for their ChitChat column.  I hope they like it.  🙂  I’ll keep you posted on whether it gets selected for the magazine or not.

 New on HSE’s homefront – a new monthly club is coming soon.  The old club, PrimiStitch Club, isn’t going anywhere, this is a new addition.  I don’t have a name per say just yet but will soon.  It’s an entirely exclusive club.  The only time these designs will be available on HeartStrings will be through this club.  It’ll be cheap, maybe $5 a month, $50 for the year.  I’ll keep you updated on the progress and when it’s open for member signup.

I added a new page to HSE’s site.  It’s Previous Releases and it will show what new designs are available every week in thumbnail view.  It will be a quick and easy way to see what was put out a couple weeks ago. 

Well back to my machine.  It’s stitching out a gorgeous willow tree design for tomorrow release.  I’m partial to willow trees and saltbox houses, if you can’t tell by my site! lol  I really like this one and think it’s going on a pillow for my couch.  Now to just keep the dog away from it….Huckleberry seems to have a fondness for embroidered items.  Maybe the threads taste good??? 

Until tomorrow when I post new releases.  Have a great thursday!!!

HUGS, Stephanie
