  1. So that' swhat you've been up to! :)
    Congrats on 100 followers!!!!!!!!!!!
    All of your new designs are great, it was hard to pick one.
    I think I would love Seeds of Freedom.
    I am a follower.

  2. Oh, wow. They're all beautiful, but I'm not much of a gardener, I'm afraid. The Psalm is a wonderful quote. However, I am currently stitching 272 words, and seeds of faith would be the perfect companion. Thanks for sharing, I have my fingers crossed for this one!

  3. You know one can follow your blog without being a follower. lol! I have that bad habit of following without being an official follower. Sorry about that -- I'm official now! The Shadow of Your Wings is my favorite of the bunch. But Seeds of Freedom is a very close second. Beautiful designs!

  4. Congrats on 102 followers!
    Of the 3 beautiful new charts you designed I would select "Seeds of Freedom". I have your "Sweet cup of Liber Tea",
    I love your patriotic designs. love Annette

  5. Wow wow they all so beautiful...
    Congrats on 100 followers my dear :)
    Me a happy follower :)
    I so much love the " garden bliss"..; she is so much me :)
    Thank you
    Big hugs x

  6. I follow on Bloglovin - does that show up? Does that count? I have a hard time choosing a design, I like them all. But the "Seeds of Freedom" speaks to me because we go to Gettysburg about once a year.

  7. I would love to win Seeds of Freedom. You know I love your patterns!!! I'm not sure I was considered a follower - but I do check in on you often and NOW I am official!

  8. Gosh you have really outdone yourself!! I love them all but the Cicil War chart is my fav! Thanks for offering up a drawing!!

  9. Congrats, Diane! I just love your designs and I am so grateful for the chance to win Garden Bliss! Thank you!

  10. Diane, you new designs are fantastic! I particularly like "Seeds of Freedom." The Civil War was such a terrible time for our country. I also like the "Shadow of your Wings" sampler. I sing in the funeral choir and that is one of the psalms we sing at funeral Masses.

  11. Just found you! Love your garden bliss. I am looking forward to showing my daughter your weight loss photos, they are encouraging. I also have a freshman in school...girl,,,,its an interesting time. I am looking forward to what you will design for Halloween and Christmas

  12. These are so beautiful! It's so hard to choose, but I just love "Shadow of Your Wings." Good work!

  13. Oh wow Diane! You did it! I'm the person who emailed you about the garden verse last year! Oh I absolutely love it. I'd love to win Garden Bliss please if it's OK to enter as I don't comment but I have been a follower for a long time. I'll be buying it if I'm not lucky enough though and stitching it in memory of my Dad. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  14. Wow all three are great designs.But I think I will have to pick "Shadow of Your Wings" thank you for a lovely drawing :)

  15. Congrats on reaching 100!. I would love to be entered for Shadow of Your Wings. It's such a nice verse and pretty design.

  16. Shadow of Your Wings is my favorite, but all three are great designs.

  17. I only just discovered Silver Creek Samplers a couple of months ago but fell in love with them. Now have five kitted up ready to stitch. My hubby was the Executive Director of the Virginia Civil War Centennial Commission and the first Director of the New Market Battlefield State Historical Park. I think he would enjoy the Seeds of Freedom sampler. Plus he just celebrated his 100th BD. Thanks for the change to win.

  18. wahhh hooo on the followers :) love the new charts and like sally love the kiss of the sun one too :) this has been one of my favorites as its on a sun dial that I would love for my garden :)

  19. Congratulations on the 100 followers as well as your weight loss. I love all 3 new designs and will be anxious for their arrival at my favorite shop. My favorite is Garden Bliss. I get such joy from my flowers. Thank you for a chance to win.

  20. Happy summer! Love all the new designs, but especially like "Seeds of Freedom!" So happy you're still designing, despite your change in work situation. I hope all goes well for you in the months to come.

  21. Congratulations on the first 100 followers. Love your new designs :-))

  22. I must say I just love your designing style! Seeds of Freedom is definitely my favorite! I have Sweet Liber-Tea on order at my LNS and the Sing-A-Sampler on my wish list. Thanks so much for the chance to win and good luck to all who enter your giveaway!

  23. Congratulations on 100 followers (it was up to 108 already this morning!) I love all your new designs, but i'd have to say "Shadow of your wings" is my favorite. I'll be looking for all of them at my LNS though.
