Getting ready for market...

As the deadline registration for Razzmatazz (my online Mystery class) quickly approaches, I'm starting the countdown to the Nashville market - it's only three weeks away and there's still so much to do. I've finished stitching Spring Meadow and am now working on writing the instructions - the fun is over. I loved creating this design; I started in the middle of the canvas with an interesting combination of plaited rays and worked my way out to the border. I took some of the threads from the Highland Meadow colorway of my Serenity design and this is what I came up with. Every time I taught Serenity last year and saw my student's pieces, I wanted to use these threads and colors! It finishes at 8x8 and the colors reminded me of a spring meadow - fresh and soft. I love lavender and teal and they look great together.


Stay tuned for more peeks of what will be new at market -

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.

May flowers...

I've been spending some time digging out flower beds and doing a little planting. Although I love flowers and would like to have a beautifully landscaped yard and garden, I'm not a big fan of actually working with dirt and yard tools. After planting a bunch of flowers and a few vegetables this past weekend (with my father's help - he's a fabulous gardener!), I'm enjoying the view of my backyard from the window next to my sewing machine! 

Now that the dreaded yardwork is done, for the most part anyway, I'm getting back to finishing up the instructions for a new design so I can get it to the printer this afternoon. I will be releasing two new designs next week on May 15th. I've sent all the info to the shops and just put them up on my website on my Coming Soon page. 

First up is Colorblocks.  This design uses a similar palette to my Colorwaves design. I love working with this bright color scheme using all the colors of the rainbow. I used Watercolours, DMC Pearl…
