After a busy summer traveling here and there, and a new grandbaby, I’m back into a more normal routine. This time of year means a lot of planning – new designs, stitching models, thinking of class proposals (deadlines are approaching!). So I’m in the planning stages for several things, but I’m also stitching a design that will be released as soon as I get it finished.
Winter Blues is the latest in the series I’ve designed as inserts for trays from Patches n’ Planks. I love blue, and very seldom get to design a whole entire project in just blue!
I’m making good progress on this design and hope to get it finished in the next day or two, so it will be released in plenty of time for winter decorating. Not quite a holiday piece, unless you have a blue color palette, but it should be a nice touch for after the holidays. The house always looks somewhat empty after the Christmas decorations come down, and something new to take us into the winter months should be a good thing.
The design is small, 6″ x 6″, and symmetrical. Of course the colors I’ve selected are easily changed to other colors if you prefer. So far I’m mostly using floss, with a couple of other threads to make it interesting. Nothing too complicated like Jessicas or walnetos in this one, just some nice satin stitch patterns.
I’ll let you know when it’s finished and available. Thanks for looking!
