Winter Update...

  I've been working on Winter Logs which I'll be releasing at the Nashville market at the end of February. I'm thinking this one doesn't need a border but I'll probably chart one anyway. I haven't decided if I'll actually stitch it or not... Here's a sneak peek: Last week I finalized the details for teaching at Nashville Needleworks in Brentwood, TN. The class will be February 26-27 a few days before the tradeshow. It's a two day class - contact  Nashville Needleworks  if you're interested. They also own a B&B and have discounted rates for stitchers! I'm looking forward to spending a few nights there! They'll also have a trunk show of mine on display Feb 26-28 - be sure to visit if you're in the area! Here's a photo of my original piece (Sherwood Garden)  and the pictures that follow are a few additional colorways I've developed.   Bermuda Reef colorway   Camouflage colorway   Peacock colorway

Happy new Year!

My second of four "Logs" patterns is completely stitched and will be one of my releases at the Nashville market at the end of February. This is a bit of a sneak peek of "Spring Logs" -   and here's the last of 12 of my Double Delights - I just put the last stitch in tonight! This is #11 and #12 is already stitched. I'm happy to be done with this series so I can move on to something new... I've made up words for the Double Delights designs - Turple, Tangello, Nolive and a few phrases - most recently, Peach Forest. I'm struggling to name this one - the colors are burgundy (the Waterlily thread I used is Bordeaux and the Watercolour is Umbria) and olive. Leave a name suggestion in the comments and if I use it, you'll get a free pattern when it's released in a week or so.   I can't wait to draw my next design! I'
