Polka & Bloom for DMC USA

Pearl Cotton Display
So. Wow! And OMG! Maybe you noticed that April was a bit of a slow month round these parts? Well, I am sooooo excited because now I can finally share with you what I was working on all through April: some designs for DMC in the US! I think for a little while I was the luckiest gal in the world, just stitchin', stitchin' every day! :-)

The designs were displayed at the recent TNNA show. Photo above courtesy of DMC. Doesn't that display look happy and colourful?

All the designs were stitched in Pearl Cotton, so a bit different from my usual 6-strand thread. So much fun! And get this: at some point the designs will be available to download from the DMC website, woop! I'll of course let you know when. Oh and there's a little blurb about my designs on the DMC blog. Thank you, DMC!

Right, and now for the eye candy! First, my photos of the designs and then a few more photos from DMC.
