My Friend's in Nordic Needle!

Did you get the latest Nordic Needle Newsletter in your email yet? My friend Connie of Lacey Thread Designs is featured with the beautiful "My Heart's Garden". It's so exciting to see her little business take root and grow!

Here's the section on Connie's design:

My Heart's Garden

If you want a new project with both Hardanger embroidery and Silk Ribbon embroidery, this is it! My Heart's Garden (1018), by Lacey Thread Designs merges these two beautiful embroidery techniques in a pattern that is truly a garden of stitches. On 28 count fabric, design is 64w x 64h (4.5" x 4.5"). Both techniques used are clearly graphed with illustrations and instructions. Design uses DMC pearl cotton #8 (DM008-WHITE), DMC pearl cotton #12 (DM012-WHITE, 0225), DMC floss (DM001-0524), Rainbow Gallery Neon Rays (RGNEO-N11), 4mm silk ribbon in light yellow, dark yellow, dark pink, blue, lavender, SJ design 2mm beads in plum and 3 x 6mm oval pearl, Mill Hill beads (MH3021), and a bee charm (suggested butterfly/dragonfly charms 640-078-0009).
