I've filled in most of the background with black now and it just makes the lollipops "pop"! I used five strands of floss to cover the white canvas. I'm really happy with it now and will be able to release this design this summer. Here's a sneak peek at part that's done...

Now I'm back to working on my Hearts - my latest working title is "Have A Heart!" - what do you think??



  1. Love the the name also. Your creativity, one reason I will never get caught up on my ever increasing stash.

  2. Lollipops look wonderful! With the black filled in, it's def. going on my wish list. :) And the Have A Heart is a great name. And that one, too, is a must for me! (heart transplant and all...) But I love love love all your designs! I second what santadeb said -- your creativity is part of the reason why I'll never get caught up with my ever increasing stash! That, and I'm a slow stitcher easily distracted, but still, rock on, Kathy! :)

  3. Cute :-)
    Love the pastels!
    Best wishes,

New Releases for Nashville Market

February is one of the craziest months as the Nashville wholesale market is the first weekend in March. For the first time ever, I had completed stitching all of my designs by the end of December and managed to eke out a new Holiday Delights in January! I felt great being ahead of the game but after finishing the stitching, there's the instruction writing, printing, stuffing thousands of patterns into plastic bags (I do have help, thank goodness!), communicating with my shops and distributor, packing the models and patterns to travel to market, and more boring but oh so necessary administrative details. 
Did I say I love this time off year?! I really do as I look forward to market like a fabulous dessert - I get to see all my shopowner friends and other designers. We all generally work our fingers to the bone while having a fabulous time with some belly laughs and the promise of delightful sales.
At this point, you're thinking, enough, show us the new designs - here they are! Yo…

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.
