NEW DESIGNS FOR AUGUST 2006



This a new design which was released in August 2006. It is called A Good Vintage. Do you know the stitching is the easy bit... naming them though... well thats a different matter! In this case naming the design was fairly easy (that was a first!!) The thread used was Caron Wildflowers Bordeaux, the Mill Hill Beads are named Claret and there are a few suggestions in the design elements to wine - so hence 'A Good Vintage'.

Elements of this design have been picked out and used to create a small scissor fob which is being run as a free online class on Lois Carons website and in September there is a complimenting pincushion

There is a scissor fob exchange being run on my forum using this design which starts in September 2006 so if you would like to join in then please visit my forum and look for the scissor fob exchange post. You can also see in the gallery a number of people who have already stitched this neat little project - its always fun to see other peoples colour choices :-)

Hugs
Carol
