It’s August – time for new releases!

I cannot believe it is already August – the summer is flying so fast! I’m staying almost too  busy these days but still trying to squeeze in some stitching & designing. I do have four new designs which will be released next week. Shops may pre-order now or order through the online show from Norden which starts August 8th. If you don’t have a LNS, you can get them here.

First up are two of my four Elements – these were exclusive to Tomorrow’s Heirlooms but now their Club is complete so I can release them to all.  They finish at 5.25×5.25 and also look great if they are done as a four way design with this being one quarter. The first is Earth.

 and this is Water:

The other two (Fire & Air) will be released in the Spring. 

Next is Turquoise Trail – I was inspired by one of the colorways in my Curios Mystery and designed this piece – it was really fun and I’m looking forward to maybe doing another southwest inspired design. This goes into my Destination Series and finishes about 6×10.

I’ve been watching people post photos of pieces with all overdyed Vineyard Silks and was jealous of them using these luscious threads so I pulled mine out and created another “rainbow” of color. This is Color Delights – Rainbow 2! These are some of my favorite threads to work with and now I’m working on a larger piece with them for next year!

Until next time –

    I'm enjoying my Elements Earth, my first Kathy Rees design and a SAL with duClay EGA. Love the choice of beautiful threads. Hope you are well, Mel
