Jumpin' Jack Frost WIP

The stitching is moving right along on Jumpin' Jack Frost which I HOPE to have out to shops sometime in August. 

See the Jack-o-Lantern face on the little pumpkin?  I will outline the details with dark green, most likely. If I squint, it looks like a heart!!  Can you see it, too?

Jumpin' Jack Frost Sneak Peek

I'm stitching this newest on Jobelan African Daisy, a lovely mottled hand dyed even weave.  Using Crescent Colours, and loving every stitch.  

This shot is a little dark, but the fabric is a beatiful, soft yellow and white, mottled so as to add to the design, not interfer.  I love it!

This design should be out to shops by the end of August if all goes well.  Jumpin' Jack Frost is going to be one of my favorites, I can see.  :-)

Suprise WIP from a friend- Panoply of Peacocks

Yesterday, I received such a lovely email from Marie in Raleigh, NC.  She and her friend Helen are both stitching Panoply of Peacocks.  Helen (left) has added some color variations which I like very much.  Marie (below) is sticking to the chart because, as she wrote "I decided that I am so in love with the colors you chose that I am working with your color choices."  The fabric both are working on Lakeside Linens Maritime White 40 count.

Thank you, Marie and Helen, for sharing your beautiful work!

Now just a note here...  I found that Eve's Leaves, a pale blue green variegated, was listed for more than one symbol. Here is a correction, with my suggestions - this applies to the Crescent Colours cotton floss.  If this image does not show well on your screen, you can see it a little larger on the corrections page of my main website at http://www.temptingtangles.com/p/corrections.html
