We are now stocking the patterns of a new designer, Nancy Williams. Nancy was born and grew up in Adelaide, and currently enjoys living in the Hills. Nancy adores colour and loves playing with different types of threads and embellishments to create bright, colourful designs. She enjoys taking traditional techniques and doing something new with them, especially if it involves experimenting with non-traditional colours or fibres.
Her first pattern, Emerald Frog, is available as a pattern or a full kit. This splendid frog lies glittering on a back ground of cotton sateen. A myriad of different stitches in complementary shades of green give texture to the frogs skin. Sequins make his powerful back legs glitter, beads make his back shine and two golden rhinestones make his eyes sparkle! This project is a delight to make and will help stitchers learn a swag of different techniques. Nancy made hers up into a miniature project bag and was commended by the judges in this year’s Royal Show. You’ll have to be quick to get your hands on this pattern as we are sure it will hop out the door!
Project measures 10cm x 13cm.
