Color Inspiration... for Nashville!

It's 40 degrees outside, people. We're having a heat wave.

All you east coast folks, try not to be jealous ;).

I broke out the flip flops today and almost wore shorts to celebrate.

Almost.

In all seriousness, with this crazy warm January weather, my garden is calling. If it doesn't start feeling like winter soon, I may get a little twitchy. This girl needs her flowers!

Mother's day is the official planting weekend around here, so for now I'll just have to settle for a little fabric therapy.  I've immersed myself in a spring-y, fun garden palette for our upcoming Nashville release.

Want a sneak peek?

Here you go!

January Releases

I was walking through the fabric store with my daughter when she spotted this ribbon. If you're a purple fan like we are, it's the most perfectly purple shade, right?

We both wondered how it is possible that CHS has not done a purple themed chart yet.

Consider that oversight rectified!

I'd like to introduce you to one of our new releases.

All Because Two People Fell in Love

It is stitched on Lambswool Jobelan and uses threads from DMC, from Classic Colorworks (formerly Cresent Colors), and from Gentle Arts.

Also shipping soon is our

Owl Birth Sampler
We've had lots of requests for more owls and a special request for an owl birth sampler, and this is the result. It was stitched on Gray Jobelan using all DMC threads. 

You should know that we broke out our very own rotary cutter for this one.

Proof.


The designs will be making their way to your local or online needlework shop over the next few weeks.

Happy Stitching!
