I sent two new patterns to my distributors and the shops on my Automatic today. First up is the 2nd in the Double Delights patterns. This one is called Wine & Pine.
And here it is in the alternate colorway listed on the pattern. I'm using threads from the Magenta & Sunshine Color Delights patterns. You'll see there's a border started on the left side of the photo and pencil lines to the right. This is the start of a large project combining 12 of the Double Delights patterns. A free chart for this border will soon be available on my website (it's on the way to the Auto shops!). The cool thing about this border outline pattern is all the "Delights" patterns, Color or Double, fit in the blocks. There's plenty of room here for creativity and color options!
Next up is Samba. This is a companion to Rio and is the second of what I'm calling my "Rio Trio". The last piece of the Trio will be called Carnival and will come out in the fall - I've already stitched it and reluctantly have put away my Vineyard silks. I really love stitching with this thread but it's time to move on to something else.
