Playing with Color

I've been working hard so I took some time to play today and here is the result. I've been wanting to combine some of the Color Delights with Rainbow in the center and blending into the squares around it. Here's the result...
This is a combo of nine Color Delights designs (I counted and I have 31 in the collection now!). Rainbow is in the center and going around clockwise, starting with the top left, is Sunshine, Tangerine, Magenta, Bubblegum, Purple, Indigo, Aqua, and Chartreuse. Stitched this way, the overall design would be 12x12. After this exercise, I realize I need to add some blue designs to the collection! That said, Lavender is the next release and here's a photo (the pattern is at the printer and will be here soon!)

I'm exhibiting in the online show - it starts tomorrow. I'm releasing Lavender and the next Double Delights. It's called Nolive - can you guess what two colors it combines?


  1. Oh my, such a colourful and beautiful combination! I love the motive in the middle!
    Nolive could be Navy (or Noir?) and olive :)


  2. Hi! I discovered your amazing designs while looking for Genny Morrow and Susan Portra. Are your charts available in the UK? Or are they available for download as a PDF?

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…
