New Class, New Releases & More

I'm excited to announce I am offering a new class through Shining Needle Society. Enrollment is now open. The Official Announcement has all the details and photos of the additional colorways I created. Here is my completed piece.
It was so fun I've started another in the Confetti colorway - I haven't gotten too far yet. I've just been stitching it during my breaks from instruction writing because I can't think about designing anything new yet!
Patterns for my new releases are at the printer - WooHoo! Now onto the instructions for class pieces! I'm now taking pre-orders for the three designs I'm releasing later this month - Autumn Logs, Bora Bora, and Color Delights - Mint. Here are photos in case you missed them!  Order Now to be the first to receive them!
Autumn Logs
Bora Bora
Color Delights - Mint
Do you know about the Color Delights Club? You can join anytime. As a member of the Color Delights Club, you automatically receive Color Delights kits as new designs are released. There are two options - Option 1: New Titles Only (1 per quarter) or Option 2: Get one kit per month (Colors Previously released; your choice or mine) will be sent in the months there are not a new Color. Members of the Club receive a complete kit (pattern, canvas, and threads) for $28 plus S&H. This is a savings of $4-7 per kit. This is a great way to try new stitches, get a fun pattern which can be used in a multitude of ways, and collect a fantastic assortment of different threads. If you already have some of the patterns, we will make sure you don't get duplicates.
Speaking of Color Delights...DeAnn from Louisiana sent me a couple of photos - here's 12 of the Color Delights framed together in one frame (Rose, Violet, Bubblegum, Wisteria, Cobalt, Aqua, Chartreuse, Sunshine, Shamrock, Tangerine, Magenta, & Fire). I love seeing combinations of them!
She also sent her version of Rainforest Crunch which hangs in her beach house - don't you love the starfish on it?! What a great addition! Love her color choices too...
If you have photos you'd like to share on my blog, send them to me and I'll happily post them here!
