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.

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…

Where has the summer gone?!

It has been a fairly lazy summer for me - after a wildly busy spring traveling and teaching, I was happy to have a couple of months at home with a  week long vacation the middle of July to visit friends. I have used a good portion of  the summer creating next year's Mystery class - I'm almost done with the stitching and registration will begin soon - details to come after I get back from Dallas.. In the meantime...

I'm heading to Dallas this weekend to exhibit at Destination Dallas. Although it's mostly a painted canvas show (so I've heard; this is my first time exhibiting), I'm hoping to introduce counted needlepoint to some shopowners. I'm thrilled to have a good friend riding along with me so I don't have to do the 10 hour drive alone. She is from Dallas and is thrilled to go along with me and visit family while I do the tradeshow! WIN/WIN!
I will be releasing three new patterns. Valentine's Day is the newest addition to the Holiday Delights Series…
