2nd Kaleidescope Done & New Nouveau Panel Introduction

Kaleidescopes ~ K2
Yea, Kaleidescopes ~ K2 model is stitched and now up for Sale

It was a fun stitch and I love the effect the jewel tones have with the tumbling feeling of the motif.  It is a small piece, stitch count is 109 x 109, and was a really easy project.

I love so many things violet, from the flower and all its shades of purple to its fragrance captured so gloriously in my favorite perfume, Violette Fumee by Mona di' Orio.  Spring is when our wild violets appear in the forest and they inspired the next design, 'Violette', which will be the second in my Nouveau Panel series.

Violette



Considerably larger than K2, Violette is going to take a good bit longer to stitch, but once again I'm facing a summer with a cast on! 
 
Thinking I was done with them after the last two summer's bouts of foot surgery, I was looking forward to actually being able to walk around Gracewood this season.  Then last week I took a step off of the back porch promptly stepped on an uneven area and rolled my ankle completely over and am now sitting here with an air cast on my leg. 
 
So this time it is a badly sprained ankle with a bone chip that is going to give me more stitching time, lol  Oh well, man proposes but God disposes and I'll enjoy working with all the colors in this one.
 
And to think I was once considered graceful :)

  2. Thanks fnm, glad you like the Nouveau, but resting a foot with a 9 month old Chessie is definitely problematic, lol

  3. Sorry to hear of the latest mishap - but as you say, more stitching time is at least some compensation. Lovely new design - some of my favorite colours too.. Hope that your Chessie gives you lots of amusement and affection during the time you're not so mobile.
