New Prairie Schooler Designs - Buzz Buzzzzz Buzzzzzz

Edgar (Blacksheep) had a posting about the previews of the new Prairie Schooler designs; he couldn't remember where he'd seen them.  So, I did a little digging and found them on the Stitches 'N Things website - they're taking pre-orders for Nashville.  You can see the new designs (and others too if you fish around on the pages) HERE.  I'm glad that she's done May.  I've been waiting for that one.  My eldest son is a May baby.  My mother was born on May Day.  My middle name is May.  My husband and I were also married in May; so I have a fondness for the month of May.

There's also one that looks like it could be in the Weather Wise series called "As the Crow Flies", and a red white and blue ornament set called "Sunny Days". 

Something else that I told Edgar about was that I remembered that an issue of Gift of Stitching, last year, had psanky eggs (not sure if I spelled that right) and an article about how they went to the Ukraine, etc.  Pam Smith (Prairie Schooler) had three eggs in that October issue (HERE) that are different from the ones that are in the new booklet "Folk Eggs" that you can see at Stitches 'N Things.  So, if you're into the eggs, check out Gift of Stitching and order the issue.  

And, while I'm talking about the Gift of Stitching, I want to say that I ordered some of the thread winders from them at Christmas-time.  All I can say is WOW!  They came bigger than I thought they'd be (which was nice) and I think that they were worth every penny that I paid for them (the shipping is included in the price - that's INTERNATIONAL shipping my dears).

There really are a lot of previews available on the Stitches 'N Spice website of other designers, lots of new stuff to get our stitchy fingers on!  So be sure to check it out.  Hope you enjoyed.


  1. Thanks for the links! I will go and drool and hopefully resist.

  2. I'll check it out, thanks! I love the new PS charts, especially the crow design.
