Ripple Rotation–
Ripple Rotation Ripple Rotation is a counted design by Kathy Rees which was constructed in quadrants that could be rotated to create different shapes. This variation reminds me of a pinwheel and is fun to stitch and watch the actual design emerge. This model is stitched with overdyed and solid Baroque Silk and Silk Lame Braid.The colors mimic a trip around the color wheel beginning with yellow, then orange, red, purple, blue and green. It's bright and happy!
The kit is $100 which includes a 12 by 12 canvas – 18 count. Design size is about 8x8 inches.
A Hot Air Balloon –
Hot Air Ballon A hot air balloon from Kirk & Bradley caught my eye and this just seems to say spring! Use Gloriana silk, Pashmina, Neon Rays, Snow, Silk Lame Braid and a few beads to stitch Up Up and Away. I'm thinking a stand up finish, but a hanging piece would be fun, too. .
The cost is $100 for all materials except stretcher bars.
Watermelon Slice–
Watermelon Slice Raymond Crawford's Watermelon slice is the perfect palette for a sampler of stitches. Use yummy threads - Impressions, Buds, Threadworx metallic, Baroque Silk just to start! This 4 by 8 design would be fun on a picnic basket, or container for summer napkins or a tote bag - even the perfect sun porch pillow.
Shamrock Garden –
This design is adapted from one of Needle Delights Color Delight series and expands the block from one to four. It is based on two Caron Collection Watercolours and uses values of Impressions, a Gloriana overdyed silk and Rainbow Gallery Silk Lame braids to complement the Watercolours
