  • BFC0361 Swans & Water Lilies
    • 60% off

     Coordinating with the Lace Bowl & Doily, Swans & Water Lilies, these designs can be used in most any project. The swans are all done in white using different stitches and angles to create their feathers rather than lots of shading so they stitch up quickly. As shown below, they add an elegant touch to a purchased blouse or a pieced set of potholders. (For the pot holders I used design #7 without stitching the dark blue water) Always feel free to experiment with my designs - sometimes by eliminating a color or two you can get an entirely different look.

    Along with your designs you will receive a customized thread conversion chart for 7 brands of thread along with color swatches to help you choose the threads for your project. These designs were stitched in Admelody thread.

    These designs are my own artwork based on photos sent to me by Terry from Alaska and some purchased photographs.

  • BFC0359   Lace Bowl & Doily Swans and Water Lilies
    • 60% off

    Terry from Alaska sent me photos this week of Trumpeter Swans she saw swimming among the lily pads. I couldn't resist turning them into a bowl. Though her photos didn't show the Waterlilies in bloom, I added the yellow variety she said is common there plus some fragrant waterlilies that also bloom in Alaska. You can also make an all water lily bowl if you like.

    These designs are based on my artwork done from photographs submitted by Terry.

  • BFC0352 Columbines
    • 60% off

    Columbines are often overlooked. Yet they have a very intricate and graceful form and come in a myriad of colors making them perfect for decoration. These designs are appropriate for garments, linens, totes and quilts. The corner designs would be perfect for placemats or a table runner. In the large size, one design at the bottom of a long black skirt would make a dramatic statement. Bernice, a customer, sent me photographs from her garden of her Columbines and they soon became this set of designs. Thank you Bernice for the inspiration!
    Along with your designs you will receive a customized thread conversion chart for 7 brands of thread along with color swatches to help you choose the threads for your project. These designs were stitched in Admelody thread.

    These designs use some clip art and are mostly my own artwork done from photographs sent to me by Bernice.

  • BFC0351 Santa's Ride
    • 60% off

    Santa and his reindeer can ride over all sorts of Holiday projects. He can be used on tree skirts, throws, table covers, placemats or even riding up the back of your jacket. I have stitched the picture below using the 4x4 designs. The picture is about 17 inches across. I did a screen shot of a possible layout for a tree skirt using the presents as a border. A table centerpiece with Santa could have matching placemats with toys down the side. I added hot fix crystals to the stars and used metallic thread for some of the packages and ribbons. These designs are companions to the Lace Bowl & Doily - Santa's Ride.

  • BFC0347 Garden Oasis
    • 60% off

    These garden designs are companion designs to the Lace Bowl & Doily - Garden Oasis. I'm going to use the two sample scenes I did below as the front and back of a big tote to carry a needle work project. They would make a great gift for the gardeners in your life. The three blocks could be used on the front of a gardening apron and the scene could be used as a pillow or picture with word's above like *Ellen's Garden*
    In the samples below I used the 4x4 designs for the scene and the 5x7 blocks for the pieced picture. You could also tuck in other plant designs to create a large garden throw.

    These designs are my own artwork.

  • BFC0346 Feathers & Flowers
    • 60% off

     I've been wanting to create some designs I can use around a neckline. These designs can go together in endless variations to create as ornate or simple a garment as you like. You will receive templates for creating a neckline as I did in the caftan below and also suggestions for several border combinations. Each one color design was reworked to minimize jumps while stitching. The one color versions make great tone on tone designs. After completing my caftan I could picture one done in black with all gold metallic stitching.

    These designs are my own artwork.

  • BFC0345  Lace Bowl & Doily  Garden Oasis
    • 60% off

    I was driving home through the shopping mall parking lot that borders our apartment building and saw this small island garden along one side of the lot. The colors really attracted me and looked so beautiful in the sea of asphalt. When I arrived home, I dragged Rick and his camera to take some pictures for me. I think it was the silver of the dusty miller against the purple petunias and hot pink single geraniums were what made the planting so effective. This bowl is quite large. The Small Bowl is 9.4 inches across, the Medium is 11 inches and the large is 13 inches. The Small doily is 13.6 inches across, the Medium is 16 inches and the Large is 19 inches. You will receive full instructions for assembly with pictures. I'm going to use mine as a planter. I think it would also make a great center piece for a summer party with a vase of fresh flowers.

    PLEASE NOTE: There is no 4x4 size for this set. The Small and Medium are both for the 5x7 hoop. Be sure to check sizes before ordering.

    At the suggestion from a customer this set is designed to coordinate with Fred's Vintage Wine Set. They can be used with the Vintage Wine set or by themselves to create quilts and wall hangings.

The three border designs have stitches as guides for hooping (both regular and continuous hoop). The outline designs can be used to quilt some of your blocks. This set also coordinates with the Lace Bowl & Doily - Vintage Grapes.

  • BFC0340 Lace Bowl & Doily  Coral Reef
    • 60% off

    This bowl gives you a chance to use bright bold colors. I have used some metallic thread to give it even more sparkle. If you want, you could also add some hot fix crystal *bubbles*. The color charts are done with regular embroidery thread colors, but I have included a list of the metallic thread I've used in the instructions. Having 8 sides, this is a large bowl - the small is 7.3 inches across, the medium is 12 inches and the large is 14.4 inches. The design continues around the bowl and I have used invisible thread to hide the seams.

    All six of these designs are small children alone or with their mothers. All designs have been created from royalty free images of the work of Edward S. Curtis purchased from the United States Historical Archive. The original photos are of course all in sepia tones. I have tried to maintain this look while adding a small amount of color on each design. You could easily stitch these in sepia by substituting shades of brown for the few colors used.
