New releases...

 I've finished Calypso Squares! It's the latest in my Edibles collection and will include a recipe for Calypso Cookies. It's at the printer and will be sent to the auto shops June 1st. If you're a shop not on my auto, you can sign up anytime! I used 18 different bright Watercolours and five of Kreinik's holographic braids. I wish the metallics showed up better in the photographs but trust me when I tell you they *SPARKLE*!
I'll also be releasing a new Color Delights - Olive. One of my early Color Delights was supposed to Olive but turned out to be Camouflage because of the overdye I chose. Even though it didn't turn out the way I was thinking, it was one of those "happy accidents" where the result was a good one!

I'm working on fun stuff for the fall now in anticipation of teaching out in California at Needle in a Haystack. I can't wait to visit Cathe's shop and wander through all the threads. I've never been there in person but have seen pictures and know she has LOTS of threads.
On the quilting side I've finished a few more of my applique blocks and just wish I had more time to devote to them. Here are two of my recent finishes...
and the latest photo of my stitching companions...they draped themselves around the lamp last night!

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.
