Back from Nashville & New Mailing List

I'm back from Nashville - had a great time at market. It's always fun to see everybody - it's like a family reunion! I love seeing all the new things, putting my hands on new threads, and most important, visiting with the shopowners who carry my designs. As a former shopowner, I know how hard they work at market - before, during, and after!

Tomorrow's Heirlooms, the shop who offered my Elements patterns first, framed all of the Four Elements together in the same frame. They graciously offered to let me use it in in my display and gave me permission to share it - I love the way it came out!


Now that market is finished, I'm doing the last of the mailing of my Mystery kits and preparing to teach several classes in person over the next couple of months as well as the online class. One of my goals this year is to update/revise my website. It is showing its age and needs some work. In the meantime, I am going to immediately change the way I send out my newsletters. To do so, I have to create a new mailing list so I'm requesting people send me an email to be added to this new list. I sent a newsletter from my website last night but never got confirmation it was sent so am writing here to let people know about it. Here's a link to the email I sent so you know how to sign up -

I don't want to put my email address here - I already get WAY too much spam!

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…
