Eye candy

I love to see how other people interpret my designs! Just this week, I received a photo from Lucia in Arizona, who had stitched Mission San Carlos del Carmelo from my Missions of California series.

Lucia did quite a bit of needle-blending on this canvas: mixing different shades of floss for the stucco facade of the mission as well as combining one ply of a darker shade to three plies of blue floss for the sky. Didn't she do a fabulous job?!

This mission canvas is among the selection sent to Old World Designs in Menlo Park, California, which opens a trunk show of ABS Designs today through February 25.

Fellow designer and stitch guide collaborator Sue Dulle is gearing up for St. Patrick's Day by stitching my Leprechaun cylindrical ornament. You can watch her progress at

Made me smile to scroll down and see my favorite mission appear! I've got a cross stitched version of this hanging at my house. Nice job!
