|Cool Drink - Erin Nelson|
Now that the Destination Dallas show is over and we are moving into the fall holiday season, I wanted to point out designs I really really liked. This is a personal list, just things that whisper "stitch me" when I look at them. The first on the list is a new artist at Purple Palm Designs. The "Cool Drink" zebra shown on the left is so appealing due to the cool colors Erin Nelson choose.
|Pair of Quail from Quail Run Designs|
How about the quails in this Quail Run design? I just love them!
|Alice Peterson Does Mahjong|
I'm also crazy about the mahjong canvases from Alice Peterson. There are three different designs. I think the one on the right is my personal favorite. I like the mix of red, yellow and gray, the gate and the lanterns.
|Julie Mar's Peppermint Stick Mouse Sock|
I have to say this peppermint stick mouse stocking from Julie Mar is the cutest thing ever! Of course I love pink.
|Laurel Birch Flowers|
Continuing my fascination this September with floral and animal canvases are these two from Laurel Burch/Danji.
|Another Laurel Burch from Painted Pony Designs|
I love the simplicity of the horse and birds design.
|Beauty, by Zecca|
Zecca's new Beauty Bird is lovely and the saying is quite inspirational, too.
|Deco Detective, from Eleanor Grosch|
Unlike any of the other pieces, my last favorite treats are not straight from nature but are people--here's Eleanor Grosch's "The Deco Detective, " straight from the Golden Age of British detective stories.
|Lani's Lady with Peonies|
And here is one of Lani's new Asian ladies. They are stunners!
Carolyn Hedge Baird says she noticed a lot of donkey canvases and lots of dogs in clothes when I asked her what trends she noticed at Destination Dallas. What trends did you notice and what were your favorites?
