Have you seen the new Nora Corbett designs

I don't have any stitching projects to share. I did finish the stitching on a Christmas ornament for Karen, but can't show you photos until it's finished, mailed and received. I'll finish it by this weekend and have it on its way to Arizona by first of next week. My needlewrap is further along than it was from my previous progress pic, hopefully I'll have the stitching finished on it by the end of the week.

Now, for those that like the Nora Corbett "flower" designs, have you seen the latest two new ones that will soon be finding their way to your LNS. They are:

Pansy


Sweet Pea


You can see details on them on Wichelt's New Products/Books page.

I think both of these are adorable, especially Pansy. Although when I get around to stitching Pansy, I'm going to call it "Bearded Iris", not Pansy, because I think it looks exactly like a Bearded Iris (I hope Nora doesn't mind). There are a few of these I adore and have in my stitching-to-do pile: Tiger Lily, Lily of the Valley, Lilac, Poppy, Holly, and now Pansy (aka - Bearded Iris) and Sweet Pea.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far and your stitching needles are flying.

I love Pansies, but you're right, she doesn't look like a pansy. I DO, however, LOVE Sweet Pea! DSL should have them both either Friday or Monday! :-)

They're all really pretty designs. In TWO weeks, we'll be packing up a storm.....

I like the Pansy best. I am a big fan of her designs.

You are totally right -- that is a bearded iris if ever I saw one... no relationship to a pansy whatsoever.
