Entries in Summer Garden Collage (2)


Two New Designs

I just finished the beading on two new projects.....always the last thing to do!  Of course they will be traveling to the framers this week, so I am interested to see what she suggests.  Tiebele Nights will be a one-day workshop and I plan to develop a second colorway....all rusts, taupes, creama and charcoal.   The size is approximately 5" square.  The beading? The four "Xs" at the points of the diamond....bugle beads and 8 mm flat square beads. There is also a little area using the Copic markers! 


Summer Garden Collage is a two to three-day workshop.  This might make an interesting series?! That leaves Fall, Winter and Spring.  Any suggestions of what to include in any or all of them? The approximate size is 8" square.  The flower centers are a mix of bead sizes.  Again, there are several markers used here and multiple small areas of exposed canvas. 

I still have one more new design to finish stitching.  My stitching deadline is July 15th, so I will be traveling with it on my next two teaching trips.  If you are attending SCR in Shreveport or San Bernadino, stop by to sneak a peak of Pear Duet!

Hope everyone is finding lots of stitching time this summer.



Proposal Sketches

I shipped off proposal packages for two new designs I have been working on.....shown previously here.  As these designs are only partially stitched I needed to "fill in the blanks" by adding pen ink and watercolor to illustrate the finished design.

Here is Summer Garden Collage................It is approximately 7" square.

And here is Tiebele Nights.........the final name given to the African design.  It is approximately 5 " square without an outer border. This design might appear to be almost finished but I cut and pasted all the finished parts to collage the "finished project".  

I will be finishing the stitching on both of these over the next several months and will post a few updates.  It is always interesting to see how close the finished design compares to the sketch.  

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!
