Arc of White, Myrtle and Rose, Peek-A-Boo

Please see the full designs and all the details of each  on my main site on the post: St Charles-trade-show-three-new-releases

Myrtle and Rose



Arc of White

Emily Dickinson's poem inspired this design!


Model is worked on 40ct Zweigart "Midnight Fantasy" using Gentle Art Cotton; xref in Dinky Dyes silk.  The 8x6 mm spider body is a Mill Hill oval, Olivine Luster Glass Treasure. 



Highlight of "Arc of White"  is the dainty, beaded spider, a true arachnid work of art


The embroidered charm is enhanced with a number of specialty stitches: eyelet, 4-sided, Smyrna cross.  This is not suitable to be stitched over 1 thread of fabric.


Myrtle and Rose is worked on Weeks Dye Works 35ct Havana linen with Gloriana silk; Dinky-Dyes silk pack available.  
This design is filled with detail and the delicate, soft colors of a late fall morning. This piece is destined to become a true heirloom. 


This lemon and citrus leaves motif is created by a combination of simple satin and eyelet stitches



 Peek-A-Boo

 

A magical "Boo" rises in smoky vapors from the glowing innards of a fat Jack-o-Lantern, as two youngsters peer inside, awed by whatever surprise might be lurking there.  A magical "Boo" rises in smoky vapors from the glowing innards of a fat Jack-o-Lantern, as two youngsters peer inside, awed by whatever surprise might be lurking there

  1. What wonderful new designs, Deborah! I especially love 'Myrtle & Rose' on that beautiful gold linen with all of it's intricate and delicate variation of stitches. That is definitely one that I must have!!

    I can't imagine how you manage to design and stitch so many gorgeous new designs. No wonder that your poor back has been so uncomfortable. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Blessings!
