    Recently my favorite thing was cacti, and I was doing a lot of satin stitching. Right now I'm being drawn to things with running stitches, more fine lines so the embroidery looks like a pen drawing. I've also been doing some Christmas stitching too.

    I love stitching things that are from nature — birds, tress, flowers — I often stitch while I'm in meeting and on conference calls — so it's a simple way to feel like I'm doing something other than sitting at my computer in a long meeting. I also love color — so when colors are bright– that makes me smile.

    I'm always looking for new things to embroider and new techniques to learn! In the past, I've really enjoyed botanicals, redwork, and even little Christmas doodles. Right now, I'm working on enoying the process and not rushing through new projects.
    I'm so glad to hear that your new book has made its way to the publisher. I've enjoyed attempting some of your other motifs and look forward to trying my hand at mandalas!
