New Norsk Needlework Embroidery pattern

                                          Norsk Fairytale was adapted from 17th century
                                          Norwegian  woven coverlets. It has a Queen and
                                          King riding their horses in a field of flowers, under
                                          the shadow of the castle... and of course they lived,
                                          as you can guess,"Hapily Ever After".
                                          Stitched on 36 ct Picture This Plus, Relic, linen
                                          with gorgeous Gentle Arts Sampler threads.There
                                          are hardanger style stars, but no cutting and very
                                          large clear diagrams that make it easy to stitch.
                                          The model is on its way to Baltimore for the TNNA
                                          needlework show and will be in the "Ink Circles"
                                          booth. Both this pattern and the following
                                          "Project 99" will  be for sale at the show and then
                                          on the Ink Circle site  as well as many fine
                                          needlework shops all over the world.

                                                         Early 17th Century woven coverlet

                                                  "Project 99"
                                                  This fun project was stitched by Tracy (my
                                                  daughghter, the designer of "Ink Circles")
                                                  after she solicited favorite local brews
                                                  from stitchers.

                                                  Last summer I asked my friends and followers
                                                  to tell me which brands of beers they liked.
                                                  I had enthusiasts from around the globe tell
                                                  me about their local breweries, spots they hit
                                                  on vacation, and tastiest drinks.
                                                  This design was stitched on appropriately
                                                  "Ale" linen by Picture This Plus. 32 ct. with
                                                  DMC threads. I find it amazing that with a
                                                  few well placed stitches the brews are
