Time flies...

when I'm having fun and creating new designs! I've been super busy the last few months working on all kinds of secret projects. I'm almost done stitching a large Mystery design that will soon be available as an online class. This is my fifth Mystery design (you can see the others here) and I think it's my favorite! I used colors I personally love (turquoises, purples, and limes) to stitch my original and have created additional colorways so there's something for everyone. I'm also working on a couple of new teaching pieces and I always have a new Color Delights on stretcher bars for times when I have to sit and wait somewhere.

At the printer now is Ripple Rotation 2 - here's how it started...with this small design. I used an "Earthtone" palette of overdyed Vineyard Silks from ThreadworX. Although I love love the bright colors, this is a great time of year to stitch with these "warm" colors.



Here's how I stitched it and wrote the pattern for it...


And, here are a few options for stitching variations. It's so interesting to see how different the same pattern can look, depending on placement and rotations! Just posting these makes me want to start working on another!



The patterns are at the printer and I hope to have them here next week. You may pre-order patterns and kits. Orders for kits will be shipped in the order they are received.

Until next time (it won't be so long!!),

  1. Fascinating! You could just get caught up in trying out different arrangements and never get around to stitching it
