Countdown to Nashville...

I'm exhibiting at the TNNA trade show in Nashville this weekend and have been working like crazy to get everything done. I'm releasing 4 new designs! The new patterns are at the printer (I'm picking them up tomorrow!) and then I have to put them in their plastic bags. I'm fortunate to have a great friend who has the day off tomorrow and is coming over to help - it'll be much more fun than doing it by myself!

I'll be introducing a new series of designs called "Double Delights" - here's the first one and it's called "Turple".
Double Delights is a series that will focus on  combinations of two colors - this combo is Turquoise and Purple. You can find more info and signup details at Double Delights on my website.
 Check back often this week as I'll post pictures of the rest of my new releases!

And just's the latest photo of my boy cat Boots!

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.


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…
