Ripples...

I'm excited to announce the creation of a new series and show you the first offering. After I finished designing and stitching Colorwaves, I was inspired to create more "waves of color" but on a smaller scale. Thus, ... ripples, which are just small waves. So I stitched this...

I haven't done a Mystery class for the last two years and I'm happy to be designing another - I look forward to being able to share it and eventually publish it.

I will be releasing six new …
