Working Away

The first St Charles needlework market will be held next month so I am working away trying to get as much done as possible. I'd like to be ready by the end of August but I know it won't happen. As much as I try to be ready early for a show, I am always working right to the last day before I leave.

Here is another sneak peek of an ornament design. It's a little blury, sorry, but for all that you'll see it won't really matter.

I've started working on the Summer Limited Edition Pack and this will be available by the end of the month and possibly sooner. I am just waiting on the fabric to arrive so that can be dyed. Also included will be the last of the seasonal biscornu charts as well as the regular LE silks, cottons and fabric that is in each pack. If you would like more information about this pack, e-mail me at

The Spring LE pack is featured in a previous post so if you want to see what a pack looks like, just scroll down.

I received some new photos of my youngest grand daughter, Taylor, this week. She is 7 months now and just loves her veggies. Here is a photo of her with zucchini all over her face.

OK, I'm back

I know it's been a while but I either haven't had anything to blog about or have been too busy blog.

My husband and I spent a week in Floria last month and had a great time. It was hot but nowhere as humid as Houston and we loved getting out and about. Too bad about the storms each afternoon though!

I'm sure you all recognise this famous Disney building.

The last month or so I've been busy working on some new designs, two of which will be released next month and I've been trying to work out the finishing on one of the designs. I think I have it sorted but won't know for sure until I try to put all the actual stitched bits together.

This is a sneak peek of a new Halloween design.

The new Nashville 2009 colours are progressing and I've dyed up a couple of Limited Edition colours for a few designers. I'm also working on a new thread line for release at Nasville but I'll give you more details as it all comes together.

Later this month I expect 2 new pairs of scissors and there will be a cute little fob to go with them.

There is also the Summer Limited Edition packs to get ready so that is on the calender to tackle in the next few weeks.
