A new online class...Mint Julep

Registration is open for my new online class, Mint Julep. It closes July 29th so I can get all the supplies ordered to start class September 1st. I fook forward to another great class!

This monochromatic design incorporates a lot of different textured threads and a lot of unusual stitch combinations - it's fun to stitch! The photo doesn't show all the sparkle and texture.

 Here's my original piece - I wanted a soft soothing design and chose a variety of mint greens with touches of seafoam and other greens. As usual, I developed a few other colorways. I've included photos of finished pieces from several students.

The other colorways are: 

Melon
 

Neutral

Blues
  

Lavenders

 When I taught it in person, several people asked me about doing dark instead of light borders for some of the alternate colorways. It comletely changes the look and adds drama. There are dark borders for all of the colorways except the original. Here's the Melon colorway done with the dark borders.

On my design board right now is next year's Mystery! No hints yet but I am very excited!

Hope you're staying cool if you live in the sweltering heat like I do!

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…

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.
