New Pat Mazu Designs

Fans of counted canvaswork and subscribers to the needlepoint magazines have seen lots of Pat Mazu's wonderful little stocking designs. Occasionally Pat does something that isn't a stocking and they are terrific, too. I am thrilled to see that Stitches from the Heart has new charts of her work available.

The stars at the top of Kim's Stars I've just seen Tony Minieri use in a fabulous background.  The gold and white stockings are the most elegant little stockings imaginable, while the Spindrift stocking is perfect for the ocean lover or sailor in your life.  I think the three little Glittering stocking patterns have been in Needle Pointers.  Great stuff, all four charts!  It is a good time to be a counted thread sort of needepointer, isn't it?

Pat has a finishing book available as well.  I've not seen it in person but friends say it is a great finishing book.
