Coming Soon...Colorwaves

I'm happy to announce I've finished my big Summer Release - Colorwaves! I put the last stitch in a couple of days ago! I still have to finish writing instructions before it goes to print but the official Release Date is May 21st. This is one of the most fun pieces I've designed and I'm actually kind of missing stitching on it! I used a lot of textures (21 cards of Rainbow Gallery plus some Watercolours, and a few other threads; mucho variety!). 
Pre-orders are now being accepted - this helps me know quantities to order and if you want one of the first shipments, order asap. 
Shops may send me an email through the website to place pre-orders or request a supply list.

Woodlawn Winner!

Congratulations to Maxine C. who won a ribbon at Woodlawn with Duality - she took this as a class from me and Jeanette Rees (my mom!) at a Retreat we hosted a couple of years ago. We're actually teaching this in June at the South Central EGA Region Seminar in Baton Rouge.

What happened to Spring??

I woke up feeling cold this morning. What wacky weather everyone seems to be having. I couldn't believe I pulled a long sleeve shirt over my head this morning and still have it on this afternoon. I thought summer was imminent but I guess we have a few more days of cool weather. 

I'm plugging away at stitching the borders on Colorwaves - I finally settled on cross stitches with white stranded floss. I don't know what I was thinking when I thought I'd get these done in an evening or two - I've done multiple stitching sessions and am only halfway through. Now my goal is to be done by the end of the month as I'm working on a few other things in between to break up the monotony of the rows of white. Borders aren't my favorite thing to stitch! 
Our local quilt guild had its bi-annual show this past weekend. As a member of the committee, I'm happy to have the event be finished. I thoroughly enjoyed the show and spending time with a few special friends.  On Satur…

April Fools - No Jokes here...

Happy April! I always loved April Fools Day when I was a kid and loved coming up with believable ways to trick my friends! No tricks in this post though!
I just got Stained Glass Stars back from the framer - here it is!

Looking forward to finishing Colorwaves, a new colorful design I've been working on. I've showed a few sneak peeks on Facebook but wanted to share them here too. I'm really loving working on this and hope to be releasing it this summer.



I love using all the colors in one design!
Back to stitching on this beautiful spring day - I'm actually headed outdoors to stitch in the sunshine!
