I went out of town for a few days for my nephew’s wedding this past weekend and all of a sudden, it seems like I’m running out of time to prepare for market in Baltimore next month. How did I already lose a week of August?! I’m madly stitching a few small designs in my Double Delights series so I can have the covers printed at the same time as the new releases for September. I have four more to complete for the series of 12 and I like to stay a few months ahead. I did finish one I’m calling Chaqua (cha-kwa) with bold brown and blue colors. I also sent one to a friend to stitch and it’s peach and green – no name yet. Here’s a sneak peek of the one I’m currently working on. I don’t have a name for it yet but I’m sure it will come to me. I like the colors so much I wish it was a bigger design! The overdye is Bravo from Rainbow Gallery. I prefer stitching with Watercolours because of the feel of the thread but there are some great colors in the Bravo, Encore, and Overture lines from RG.
Back to stitching! I’ve been happily watching the Olympics but am starting to feel olympiced out. The closing ceremonies will be most welcome!
