Tuscan Midnight - Alternate Colorways

I love changing up colors so I listed several alternate colorways in my Tuscan Midnight pattern. People are starting to finish stitching it so I thought I'd share their photos with you here. First up is my "Original" colorway - this is how I imagined it in my mind when I was designing it and the colors seemed somewhat "earthy" to me with the addition of blue to represent the sky.

I love putting lots of Watercolours in one design and kind of follow a "recipe" of sorts when I choose colors to go together. It was really fun to come up with the extra colorways because they are all so different from one another and set such different "moods". Here's a photo Mary sent me of the "Hot Bright" version - I went wild when I chose the colors!

Next up is the "Cool Blues" version - always a popular choice because blue and green are so soothing together and yet the darker tones make it all pop. Sorry I can't remember who sent this to me but she filled in the corners - it changes the look of the design and I like what she did - I tried many different versions of corners until I gave up and had the mat cut with the corners cut away. In the end I was happy with the result!

And finally, here's another in the "Original" colors but framed in a different color mat & frame style. It shows you what a difference framing makes. Randi from This World in Stitches sent this photo to me - thanks!

Autumn Logs pillow

Just a quick post to show my finished Autumn Logs made into a pillow. The center looks washed out in the photo but I can't take another because I sent the pillow up to Fireside Stitchery - they're having a Needle Delights Originals trunk show right now and have over a dozen of my pieces - check them out if you're in the northeast! Today is the first day of my online class "Inchies" - here's the Confetti colorway - one of my students already finished it and sent a photo! I'm working on something new and will show you a peek soon! Kathy

More Serenity and something new...

I'm so pleased to show you photos of some of my students' work! They've had such fun stitching Serenity and several have completed it. It's such fun to see the different colorways come to life! First up is Pam B's - it's called "Flowers of Italy". She was clever and added her initials to the piece - can you find them?! Next is Highland Garden - it was one of the most popular colorways! And here's Arnhem Heath, the ever popular purple and green! 

I'll be teaching this project at Needle in a Haystack in Alameda, CA next month - if you're wanting some Serenity, come join us. You can see all the info here.


In full swing...

I've been getting ready for my big summer trip - I'm heading to the midwest next month. First I'll be attending the TNNA Needlework tradeshow in St Charles, Missouri and then am heading to Chicago for the ANG National Seminar. I'm taking a class with Orna Willis and looking forward to being with someone who has great color sense! I'll also be participating at Expo Night. I'm looking for a couple of people who have experience in such events who would be willing to help me - contact me privately if you are interested. 

Before I go to Seminar, I'll be teaching August 22-23 at Tomorrow's Heirlooms. You can get more details on their Facebook page here. I'm really having fun working on the piece and wish I could show you part of it but alas, it's a Mystery! I haven't done a Mystery class for the last two years and I'm happy to be designing another - I look forward to being able to share it and eventually publish it.

I will be releasing six new …
