Barbara Ana cross stitch charts.
These fabulous and fun (and easy) charts arrived a little while ago but I have just gotten around to listing them. They are all so much fun, and simple to do. Bright and colorful and perfect for someone you know, or for yourself. There are about 4 that I want to do straight away, and I have already been thinking about who I could make some for as Christmas presents. These are some of my personal favourites.
Adam & Eve - so cute

My Favorite Apron - I am definitely doing this one for me

Cattitude - I know who this would be perfect for.

Haunted House - I'm a big Halloween fan, and just love this house. Probably won't get around to doing it, but I can put it on my list.

B J Designs

There is so much new stock coming in I thought I should put some of it on my blog. Today's offering is B J Designs. I love their stuff, it is mainly applique wall quilts with some fabulous and funky animals and a few other things. They have a great armadillo named Armando that Barbara gave me the pattern for to make for the SewArmadillo store. I haven't made it yet of course, but it is on the list.
Here are a few of the wonderful patterns that have just come back in, some new ones and some that we have had before.
This is Ellie, isn't she gorgeous. She would be a great addition to my elephant collection. I might have to put her on the list of things to do.

Fiona, she is beautiful isn't she. Like my friend Fiona, maybe this one wears brighter colours but they are both great. I'm not sure if Fiona (the person) is into fish, I should find out and maybe make this for her if she would like it.

Jersey Girl - so cute, and she is new. Perfect for any cow collectors out there. I love her in purple but I think she would be great in black and white as well (not just because I have a large collection of black and white fabric)

And something other than animals. This one is called Gotta Love My Bus - I think it is perfect for all the old hippies out there and anyone who loves campervans.
All these patterns are so cool, there are way more on the website -
