Evergreen Grove

This week we received about 22" of snow.  Living on a mountain on the Wasatch Front pretty much guarantees that you will have a white Christmas.  Our backyard rests alongside a meadow that backs up to a forest of evergreens and oaks.  We have lived on this mountain for 13 years and have watched the row of pine trees in our yard shoot up to tower over all the over trees in along the meadow.

Evergreen Grove Embroidery Kit and Pattern

I always have hoops loaded with vintage linen and a Frixion pen in my bag, and this week as the snow fell, I decided to sketch what I saw from my living room window.  Three tall pine trees all bright in green with flakes falling lightly around them.  I am calling this embroidery pattern Evergreen Grove.  I so enjoy a simple stitching project and this one was a joy to stitch the past few evenings.

So fun to share this simple primitive style embroidery pattern in time for a week of rest!  We have Evergreen Grove available in kits that include everything needed to complete this project (including that darling oval hoop), or a paper and PDF pattern in case you want to get going tonight.

Village Square Barn Quilt Pattern

One of our most loved barn quilts is the Village Square Barn Quilt.  We designed this pattern several years ago and have joyfully been commissioned to paint many of them for cities and friends around the country.  It is a perfect holiday barn quilt with the center town square shinning with a bright star, and little houses around with tall multi-colored pines in each corner.

One of the things I love about this quilt is the visual connection you see with each home all centered around a star.  I have mine hanging on my front porch through the winter and sometimes bring it out in the summer too.  It is colorful and bold, just as I like all my designs to be.  This original design is now available as a PDF or paper pattern in The Shop.  

Each of our patterns include step by step instructions for making your barn quilt just like we do here at our Tweetle Dee Shop.  They also include a Prairie Paints color list and pattern guides to help you complete your barn quilt.  Also in our shop are our Prairie Paints, brushes, aprons, and wood pallets if you want to get the complete materials list, we have everything you need. There are also kits for this barn quilt available.
