Drying out...


After 26.81 inches of rainfall in 36 hours earlier this week, we're drying out and enjoying a sunny weekend in Pensacola. Although there is a lot of damage around the county from the flooding, I am fortunate to not have suffered any damage to my house or neighborhood. I did have a shallow lake in my backyard which is now gone. There is a lot of damage to many roads (45 closed) and I've not been able to go anywhere the last few days without having to take detours. That'll probably be true for many months to come.

Not being able to leave the house for a few days gave me some extra stitching time this week (luckily my power was only out in the middle of the night during the worst of the rainfall). I finished up this fun project I'm calling Soduko Delight. It'll be offered as a class through Shining Needle. Next up is picking out alternate colorways - one of my favorite things to do! Membership in the Shining Needle Society is free and you can join anytime. Let me know if you need info.

 

Colorwaves has made a big splash - the response has been tremendous and huge orders have been placed. If you're still considering it or haven't seen it, scroll down to the next posting for more info.

Off to play with thread! Enjoy the weekend...

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…
