One Small, One Larger Design for August

"Good Morning" fluttered it's way from my mind, into my design program,  onto my stitching frame, and then into shops, all in about three weeks' time.  All dressed up in some bright Weeks Dye Works' cotton floss, Kreinik emerald braid and copper and gold Mill Hill Beads, this is a pretty design.  But if you need a petite needlework gift, just stitch one of the two dragon flies, pop it into a tiny frame or finish as an ornament!  See the whole design on my main site here 

"Summer Duet" is the second design to appear this month.  This is the next release in the Seasons at Watermeadows Castle series.  Read and see more details on my main site, here.
This design uses only full stitches and in fact, the model is worked over 1 with DMC. Uses just three French knots,  one Mill Hill red petite seed bead, and Kreinik gold cord (it glides like butter) for the two musical instruments.
