Presenting "FALL FROLIC" - new release!

For my extra special bloggies, here is a super fun new design that I just finished stitching and hasn't even been framed yet!  My absolute favorite season is Autumn...and the funniest story is that when I moved to San Francisco 10+ years ago, I enjoyed my first ever green Christmas but missed the changing leaves from a glorious Midwest Autumn...sigh. Finally I knew that I would take a cold bright winter day with the sun shining and minus 25 degree temps rather than enduring fog, fog and even more fog - it could certainly make a person depressed if they weren't use to it. So I thank my lucky stars that I am now a North Dakota girl and hope that you will continue on this crazy stitching journey with me. That you enjoy my new designs, keep reading all about this beautiful family my husband and I created after going through 9 miscarriages before our daughter and son were finally born...and just sharing in the whole story of Pickle Barrel Designs and Nancy Greenberg.  I would LOVE to grow the amount of followers to my blog, so if you could help me out by referring other stitchers to follow, I would be so thankful to each and every one of you. Thank YOU!

Coming next will be a sneak peek of a delightful Christmas design with jingly elves and playful reindeer! Happy Stitching!

NOTE: This design should be available in stores by MID-SEPTEMBER!
