Nashville Releases

I've got everything ready to go for the Nashville market - that is, I'll be ready to go after stuffing a thousand or so charts into plastic bags when they get here from the printer today or tomorrow! That's the glamorous life of a designer, heehee! Here's what the shopowners will be able to purchase - if you're lucky enough to have a local needlework shop, ask them to pick these up for you. If you don't have a LNS, you may pre-order from me. All the titles are up on the website. Here's everything even though I've previously given some sneak peeks.

Spring Meadow is a stand-alone pattern. Design size is 8x8. Threads used are Gloriana Silk Floss 040 Highland Meadow (2 sk), Princess Perle 040 Highland Meadow, Vineyard Classic Silk C-093, 203, ThreadworX Floss 1009, and Rainbow Gallery Neon Rays N123, Neon Rays + NP37, Splendor S871, Mandarin M869, and Silk Lame SL92.

Curios
Curios was taught as a Mystery Class last year and is now available to everyone. Six additional colorways are listed in the pattern and kits are available in each of the colorways. This is my original colorway, based on the Mountain Haze Watercolour.

 Thanks to my students who stitched Curios in the class, I can show you what the other colorways look like! This is a finished Prickly Pear version.

  This is a finished Tahiti version.

 This is a finished Kelsch version.  

 This is a finished Turquoise Trail version. 

  This is a finished (almost!) Rose Quartz version. 

 This is a finished (almost!) Rainforest version.  
It's so fun to see them all together - I'm still always amazed at how different they look in the various colorways!

Until next time -
Kathy

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…
