Moving ahead - Panoply of Posies and Creation

Panoply of Posies and Creation are in the printing process as I write.  The chartpacks will make their "real life" appearance in shops in the next few days via Hoffman Distributing.

 It's a new and exciting schedule in our household  :-)

Mounds of Chocolate!

Friend Chelsea is moving right along on Quaker Rocky Road! Here is a slice of this chocolate confection as of this morning's email!  There are so many kinds - dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and while we can't tell till we take a bite, I imagine there are caramel filled, nougat, maybe some orange jelly, and absolutely, one with cherries in the center!!

The Winds of Change...

As of November, 2010, I will be selling a selected list of my designs thru Hoffman Distributing.  As time passes, I will begin to pull those charts off my Etsy shop and they will no longer  be available through direct sales to you, but rather, in shops around the world.  Therefore, if there are any of interest, this is the time to let me know.   Thanks to you all for your support - you have helped me grow!  I will be able to offer you more designs in the future, available in  hardcopy format.  Thanks so much for all your ideas and encouragement.  I remain, faithfully, yours - Deborah at Tempting Tangles Designs.

YOU MAY STILL CONTACT ME for a color catalogue (PDF) of my current designs. You can share with friends or just browse at your leisure.  Please keep an eye on my Tempting Tangles -main site    As I create new designs, I will post them there!  My WIP will appear here as I hurry to stitch all those designs I've already published.  


If any of you have completed stitching one of my works, please feel free to share!  Your stitching could be featured on the cover of one of my designs going to shops.  There might be a little treat in that for you!!  Please contact me directly for info.

At this time most of my charts are still
available at my Etsy Shop. Please click the chart image or the link below for information about My TemptingTangles Etsy Shop  Files are sent to you in economical, easy to store PDF format.

Please contact me for special arrangements if you have dial-up, or very slow internet connections.    Soon you will be able to visit your local needlework store to purchase one of my designs!

Frolicking in the Bluebells

This little fellow is destined for the Wichelt.com freebies site. I will let you all know when it is there to download.  Meanwhile, I am adding to the design - and you will be pleasantly pleased - in fact, there may be more than one design from which to choose.  The little elf is doing far more than playing in the bluebells.

By the way, did you know bluebells come in various shades from lavendars and blues to purple?  I renamed this as the flowers do not look like chicory - and I knew better at the time I posted the partial picture below.  Oh well. 

So, wait a bit and you will discover what this little Crimson Elf is up to.  He has a very important job!

Frolicking Amongst Chicory Flowers

I've been stitching a small design -  83x83, inspired by my back pasture which is filled with the soft periwinkle blue of wild chicory flowers.  They are a dainty flower, with stems a tough as any nylon rope.  They have quite a history and range of uses, included a coffee substitute.  My design has taken some few liberties with the little flower, which can be blue, lavendar or white.  My Tiny,red suited elf  - yet to emerge in the design - is having quite a time as he plays hide and seek in the sunshine.
