Goodbye to 2016...

In the months and months since I last blogged, I logged quite a few miles and taught a number of classes from coast to coast. My calendar is full for 2017 and I'll be posting my schedule soon. I'm looking forward to meeting more of you as I travel around the country. 
Next year's Mystery design is almost complete and I can't wait to share all the details (except what it looks like of course!) with you. Here's a tiny peek - the official registration announcement will be mid January. I've enjoyed creating this piece and am excited to offer it to you.

I'm looking forward to finished up the Mystery so I can work on something new. I did some personal stitching over the holidays - a Christmas stocking for my new great nephew and a Chicago Cubs ornament for my dad who is a lifelong diehard Cubs fan. He is always able to guess all his presents so it was wonderful to completely surprise him. I offered to hang it on my tree but he insisted on taking it home! It was great fun to have family here for the holiday - they're on the way home today so the cats are catching up on sleeping and I'm catching up with my blog and prepping for inventory - not my favorite job but at least it's only once a year. I hope to have a lot less kits to count after this week!

Happy New Year!

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…
