Having Fun Designing

That's right.  I have so much fun designing!
Playing with linen and floss and let's 
not forget about trims.
TRIMS, TRIMS, TRIMS!

             My wonderful friend Ann, of                  
sent me a goodie bag last week full of their trims.
I know... I know...what a friend!
They have some really fab colors and I knew I'd 
want to use one of them on the
new design I'm stitching.  
So, here's a sneak peek at the new design and
 just some of the trims.
 It will be ready for the August TNNA  Show.  
I designed it for my favorite of all holidays,
HALLOWEEN : )
I have a few more days of stitching on it, but I
like to plan ahead and get things out to see
what might work.  I'm loving the Cinnamon
baby chenille, so that may be the trim for
this piece.
 It's been so hot here,
just like so many other areas, but I am focusing on Fall and ideas are just flowing in my head.  I think I'll have a lot of things to stitch in the next few weeks. 
I hope you like the peak at my new little design.  
Stay Cool and Happy  Stitching!
