there are days ...

a Kimberly design©

[Click on shop name for info]
... there are days I question my sanity ...
but how cool the results of my crazy ideas!!
Attaching sequins in
Reverse Basketweave.
Further evidence of my grip on sanity.
Sequins are every where, like the stardust
I played with at Christmas
but these are full of static electricity!
Had to show you how they're building ...
The original
'Fish Under Glass"
I taught this design at TNNA
several years ago.  Maybe 2000.
This came completely charted.
Bubbles version is much smaller,
with a slight change in colorway
and is a hand painted canvas with
my stitch guide.
Most mornings start with meditation
for me.  Usually by myself ...
guess he was needing a snuggle.
This is a favorite spot, I love my sunshine stripes.
This design is also available in prints
or small greeting cards.

Canvas with stitch guide by yours truly!
Caps and Curls©
I just knew this piece was going to be magical!
My canvas was full of fairy dust!
Just enough shimmer!
I'd been given a spool of Micro Ice Chenille
sometime ago ... this was the perfect piece
for it to play on.
Thank you Kreinik Mfg.
for all the beautiful threads you provide
me to paint with!
This is an older design of mine,
from my charted work days.
I don't even have a name for it.
Originally stitched all in one color/one thread.
Very lacy looking that way.
I'm spending this afternoon re charting
as I can't find the original file.
The above is worked completely in Soie Perlee!
Thank you to Access Commodities for another
favorite thread of mine!

it's been a colorful week...

... if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook,
You've seen COLOR just about every day.
Think I missed one day but it was still a colorful week!

I've been stitching like crazy on Caps & Curls 
for the February 11th class at
[click on the shop name for details]
Just a wee bit more to stitch
on this magical piece.
If you want to learn how to do
this kind of magic ...
come see me in Orlando
February 11th.
is up next March 11th.
Sadly, this is the last of this series.
I've thoroughly enjoyed seeing how much technique
I could pack into each one of these
small five by five designs.
Wait until you see what I'm going to do
with those vertical stripes?!?
Oh yes ...
it's that time again.

All printed and ready to go.
