Countdown to Baltimore…
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.
LOVE the colors … will miss the olympics, as I too did a lot of stitching while watching them.
Love the colors also .. can't wait to see the rest of it!!
