I was fortunate to spend a couple of days at Callaway Gardens this week at the needlearts seminar. It’s always a pleasure to be among other needlewomen and wonderful to see old and new friends. I spent all day Wednesday in the boutique choosing threads for six additional colorways for my upcoming Mystery Class – yes, it takes hours and hours to choose just the right shades, tints, and hues! Registration will officially start next Tuesday – I’ll post the link here when it’s up. In the meantime, here’s a preview of the colorways. Their names are the same as the main Watercolour that is the inspiration for each. In addition to my “Original” colorway, Mountain Haze, three of the colorways are based on brand new Watercolours. I also did colorways based on Tahiti and Rainforest, two of my most popular colorways.
These are the threads for my “Original” colorway – the Mountain Haze (main Watercolour) is shown at the far left along with the matching Waterlilies thread. The messy threads are Vineyard silks – I didn’t have new skeins for the photo…purples and greens with a touch of blue, the piece turns out softer than you might think based on the photo.
This is Rainforest – neutrals, browns, and greens, I refer to this as my Earthtone version and I know it will look great!
There you have it – which colorway to choose…?! Ponder and add a comment about what you might choose. It’ll be fun to see what’s most popular!
Until next week, have a great weekend. I’ll be stitching – I’m working on my 4th new design for the Nashville market in March! I’ll be introducing a new series, something I haven’t done in a long time…
