Spring Fever has set in

Christmas is over.....and we had the best family time.
The kids are still on break and we have so many things planned before the fun is over....
ice skating
sledding
and a few movies
maybe even a fresh batch of cookies or two


We have a big warm up coming and our sledding hill will soon be mud so we'll have to hurry.

But even with all this excitement I can feel Spring Fever creeping in.
I'm ready to take the tree and greenery down, pull out all my favorite linen blankets and fill vases and pitchers with white tulips.
Soon....very soon the transformation will begin.

I covered a few little thimble boxes and sewing boxes with vintage papers and I'm stitching some sweet little samplers and velvet berries to finish them off.


I'll use pale blues and drab tans and browns for the samplers and fabrics.
These little projects will help my Spring Fever.
And I'll offer them on my website when they 're finished.


I still LOVE all the silver pieces I collected for Christmas and I'll keep them for my Spring decorating.
The pitchers will be perfect for tulips and the bowls will be filled with fresh green moss and eggs.
I might even sneak in a few chocolate eggs ; )


But until then I'll enjoy all my little bottle brush trees and creamy wool blankets.

And with the brand New Year just around the corner I have so many things to think about and to plan.
I'd like to stitch more and offer more finished pieces.
This year I've found myself so busy with other projects....my poor stitching chair is starting to collect dust.
I'd like to get back to offering new patterns every month. My journals are filled with new designs I want to try.
And throughout the year I'll offer larger framed samplers. They are my passion and the inspiration for Stacy Nash Primitive Designs.

I have SO many things to be grateful and thankful for....

all the wonderful and kind people I've met in my classes
that have become fast friends

inspiring shop owners that have hosted my classes
and my clubs

all of my customers that have become cherished
friends through emails and letters

the many many designers that I've had the pleasure
to meet in my travels and the help that they've
been kind enough to offer me

and my family that have put up with all of my
up's and down's and have always been there
to support me

I am so looking forward to another wonderful year full of new designs, samplers, sewing needfuls and friendships.


I hope you had a wonderful Christmas filled with good food, family and friends.

Until next time my friend....
Happy Stitching

Hello Stacy,
I have been following your lovely work (and your blog) for some time. Your designs are a constant source of inspiration to me. I'm very much looking forward to seeing what you have planned for spring!
Any plans for a workshop near home (Indiana)? *fingers crossed*

Hi Rhonda...you are so sweet my friend. Thank you so much.
You might be in luck....I've been talking to the new owner of Needle Fever located by Keystone at the Crossing and we're planning a class there in February. And she's making a nice room for people to come in and stitch during the day so I'll be there off and on for some company.
Hope to see you there...

Smiles,
Stacy

sono impaziente di vedere tutte le tue belle cose. vorrei tanto fare una classe con te (già detto 1000 volte) ma come faccio vivo in italia
mi accontenterò dei libri schemi e dei tuoi prodoti finti (purtroppo i 2 che ho ordinato non sono ancora arrivati)

bacioni
silvia

dear stacy
I look forward to seeing all your beautiful things. I'd love to do a class with you (said 1000 times already) but how do I live in Italy
I will settle the books and diagrams of your prodoti fake (unfortunately the two I ordered have not arrived yet)

I too can't wait for the new year and all your new designs. I adore larger samplers as well. But for me winter can hang around a little longer. I adore this time of year.
