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.   The Elements - Fire Third of the four Elements, Fire finishes at 5.25x5

Last call for Razzmatazz Mystery Class

The deadline for registration for my Mystery Class has passed but I'm taking registrations for one more day (Tuesday) before placing the final orders for thread and canvas. If you've missed it or can't find the info, here's the link: Here's one last sneak peek of my original colorway (Appalachia) and a peek of the Bermuda Reef colorway .    Details about Nashville releases is coming later this week.

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 - Kathy
