I’m excited to announce that I am offering an online Mystery Class through Shining Needle Society again. For the first time, the Mystery design is square. It’s also different than my other Mysteries but does cover the canvas completely. Class will start on January 1st – I think it’ll be fun to start a brand new project on New Year’s Day. I’ve already heard of several groups of people who will get together to stitch this project – what fun! 

You can see all the details here or here.  The above photo is a sneak peek of a very small portion of the design. I drew the whole design on the canvas before I began stitching and really enjoyed this new process for me. 

I’m offering four different colorways for this project or you can choose your own. I will show you photos of the threads for the colorways. The Watercolours and Pearl Cottons are firm but the Vineyard Silks and Rainbow Gallery fibers may be tweaked some after I finish traveling this month. There are a lot of threads/colors in each of the options.

My original colorway is based on the Tahiti and Stained Glass (yes I used them both!) Watercolours. These are truly my happy colors!

 This is Aurora and Tiffany Rose (the first and third Watercolour from the left) – it’s lavenders, greens, and mauves. 

 Next up is Bark and Raspberry Sherbet – browns, rusts, dusty purples, tans. 

This is Cypress and Fiesta – I think of this as my “Autumnal” colorway – greens, rusts, and browns with a touch of dusty purple/pink. 
 

Registration will end November 1st – I have to order threads and allow plenty of time over the holidays for them to come in so I have time to get them to everyone before the end of the year. 
Let me know if you have any questions and post in the comments which colorway you like best!

Kathy
