This month's design was selected by Barb. Above is her finished and framed Garden of Love.
I thought it might be fun if every month we learn a little something about the design selector. I sent Barb some questions via e-mail and here are her answers.
Q: What about this design called to you and/or why did you pick it?
A: Nothing about this design called to me per se. I chose it because it is a designer I had never stitched before and one that probably not too many people had in their stash. Depending on the count of fabric used it can be framed or made into an ornament or pincushion. I thought the bright colors might appeal to some of those joining in for the year of smalls and thought it might be a good opportunity for some to try silks if they purchased the kitted version from IN.
Q: Who are some of your favorite designers?
Q: When is your favorite time to stitch?
A: Evenings and weekend afternoons/evenings are most often my available stitching times. I get to stitch every day.
Q: What is your favorite fabric to stitch on?
A: Zweigert linens are my favorites - 36 and 40 are my favorite counts. Lakeside Linen (which uses Zweigert linens) is my favorite hand-dyed fabrics.
Q: How long have you been stitching and how did you learn?
Above is Jayne's Garden of Love in progress. I like it with the lighter linen color too!
Thank you Barb for picking such a great design. Something different than many of us have seen. And thank you for sharing your stitching self with us!
