Although I can’t show them off yet, I am busily working on new designs.  I just finished stitching up a chart that will most likely be offered on the DoveStitch site, but I don’t have a confirmed date yet – but you can bet I will let you know when I do!

I can’t wait to offer up my charts for you to collect and stitch!

Choosing Colors for Charts

I have been visiting Utah this past month and the colors of the landscape have inspired me in my creative efforts.  I love the greens of the trees and the red-oranges and tans of the stones, especially contrasted against the crisp whiteness of the snow.  There’s so much natural beauty to see.

I often get caught up in looking at architecture at home and forget to enjoy my natural surroundings.  Since this area is much less settled than Northwest Georgia, there’s a lot more natural beauty evident!  But, when I get home, I am going to remember to enjoy the trees, flowers, and the rocks more.

What inspires you?  Do you prefer natural colors or more man-made colors?  Do you like to stitch landscapes or city views?
