Pictures of former Mystery pieces and more

I've received a few photos lately and like to share them with you. First up is Burst of Stars from Jody D. I like the use of triple matting!
Next up is Pandora's Boxes from Chris D. He (yes, he!) has stitched several of my designs.
This next photo comes from Anne Marek who is the proprietor of Mrs. Stitches in New Jersey. I met in person at a tradeshow last year and she was delightful! She helped one of her customers change all the colors for Rainforest Revisited and sent this photo of the finished piece. It's very colorful compared to the original and it was fun to see something completely different! It sort of makes my design juices start flowing...
My mom finished her Autumn Logs and made this pillow within minutes of putting in the last stitch! It looks great on my dad's brown leather recliner but I doubt that's its home!
Here's a sneak peek of what I'm working on right now - the working title is "Stained Glass Stars" and it will be a teaching piece for 2014. 
And for the cat lovers, an obligatory cute photo of Boots - he loves plastic bags is begging me not take it away from him!
Next week I'm headed to Tennessee, North Carolina, and Kentucky! I'm looking forward to taking a class from Gary Clark with the Knoxville EGA. From there I'll go to mom's for the weekend and the John Campbell Folk Art School's Fall Festival. Last stop on the trip is the EGA National Seminar where I'll have a table at Merchandise night, see the exhibits, and shopping the Boutique (probably the best part!). Hope to see some of you there...



  1. Everything is beautiful. But I particularly love your mom's pillow - love the design, colors and finishing! When are you coming to the Baltimore/DC area? ;-)

  2. Wow - Stained Glass Stars looks fabulous. I do hope that it will be available to your overseas fans who can't get to a workshop.

  3. Stained Glass Stars looks awesome! I'm looking forward to more information on this project. Hope you will be teaching it in the Washington, DC area!

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.
