Sudoku Delight class officially announced

It's official - registration is open for my Sudoku Delight class. It's going to be fun! See more info and how to register at https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/46618682/SudokuDelight-2014.pdf


I had a great time selecting alternate colorways for this design. Most of them are based on Rainbow Gallery's Bravo which I've not used a lot. Some of the colors I'd never seen before in person prior to getting these to select from and you know how my heart speeds up at the sight of new Watercolours (my normal overdye)! Getting these cards of "new" Bravo was pretty exciting for me and the bonus of selecting these alternate colorways is that I now have some great palettes for future designs. I'm certain I'll be choosing one to use for my next design - it's hard to decide which one to use first (there are several I LOVE!) so I can understand why people are having a hard time deciding which to select for class. Of course, like people already have, you can get more than one colorway! You can see all of them from the link above but here are the ones I'll be choosing from for my next creative endeavor!



We're actually having beautiful spring weather today so I'm enjoying the view of the trees from the window of my office while I'm making up kits of my new Colorwaves. I love having piles of threads on my table! I'll love it more when all the boxes leave my house!

Hope you're having a great weekend...until next time, 
Kathy

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...
