Los Cobos and La Paz

Los Cobos 

 La Paz

Leigh Designs new series called Baja!  I was stitching on these in February and the first part of March and so I was unable to post about them until now.  They have released the series and they are available from your shop along with my stitch guides!  I created two new background stitches for them, added fun beads, threads, and the grapes are 3-D with a stumpwork leaf!  They are 8 x 8 designs on gorgeous blue 18 count!  Sharon Quick has also done two stitch guides.  You can see them all here:

This one glows!



What a witch! is back from Sue Parsons at West Coast Finishing.  The ruffled edge pillow has candy corn ribbon on the front and all of the black and white fabric actually glows in the dark!  Since I used glow in the dark threads, I found the fabric that glows too at JoAnn Fabrics!
