I hope this finds you well? It is Spring here in Cape Town and the wild flowers are in full bloom, such a beautiful time of the year. I know it is your Fall season overseas and you will be preparing for the upcoming winter and of course Halloween and Thanksgiving! My apologies for not having posted sooner it has been a busy month and I was away teaching at the fabulous Igahli convention in Knysna South Africa which I hope to share with you very soon.
There are three new designs available in the ETSY shop. The first is a needlepainting kit, in response to numerous requests for a reproduction of a Lilac Breasted Roller that I did some years ago. It never fails to amaze me the stunning array of colours that are found in birds, and this little chap is no exception. LITTLE LILAC BREASTED ROLLER can be found here. This is available as a pattern kit which includes, pre printed fabric, needles and instruction booklet but no threads. The thread list is included.
The second is an addition to the Whitework with Colour range – FLOWERS FOR ITALY, which can be found here. I named it after the beautiful Gloriana variagated silk called Flowers For Italy. This is a gorgeous wreath of birds, flowers, acorns and berries stitched in shades of burgundy, greens, golds and white. The Gloriana Silk is included with the kit. This is available as a pattern pack which includes, pre-printed fabric, needles, instruction booklet and the Gloriana silk thread. The other threads are not included but a list is available.
The third design is Spring In A teacup – it is a smaller design than Flowers in a teacup but would make a lovely companion if framed as a set. This design is available as a digital download, which you can instantly download to your PC or Ipad once payment has processed. SPRING IN A TEACUP can be found here.
