New Delights!

In addition to Sudoku Delight & Poppers, I will be releasing two more patterns at the Nashville market. First up is the new Color Delights - it's Eggplant! The photo doesn't show the richness of the color or the texture of the threads. I used Petite Very Velvet as the darkest color and the Watercolour is Aubergine - isn't that appropriate?! I love purple so it is definitely my newest favorite of the Color Delights!

I'm introducing a new series of designs called Holiday Delights - these will be six by six finished size and great for box tops, pillow inserts, stand-up cubes, or whatever other creative things people are sure to come up with. The first is Independence Day. I've been on a roll with this fun combination of patriotic colors - they're just such fun to work with and the ideas just keep coming! I'm excited about this new series and looking forward to working on the next one! Leave me a comment if you want to request a holiday for me!

These designs will all be released March 4th so look for them at your LNS (ask them to pick them up for you!) after market or if you don't have a LNS, pre-order them here.

I'm headed out of town to teach this weekend - I'm really happy to be getting on a plane and not driving! I'll be able to stitch. I'm working on my last Element, which is Wind. It is designed and threads have been chosen so I'm all set. In the meantime, I'm cutting mass numbers of canvases and drawing the outlines for the Curios Mystery Class - if you've missed the info on this class or have been thinking about signing up, you can see all the details and photos of the colorways here. Registration ends February 26th so I can get all the final supply orders in before I leave for Nashville.

Until next time,


  1. Love your new pieces. Still deciding about Curios....

  2. I read your blog.I thought it was great.. Hope you have a great day. God bless.

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…
