Ready at Last

It seems to have been an endless wait, but finally last week the printed canvases arrived for three new designs.  
One Off Needlework New designs 2017

Painted Pony and Painted Elephant were a leap into the unknown, but once begun, they almost designed themselves.  I just got absorbed in the mandala-style patterns; and with the current craze for adult colouring books, they were just right for tapestry.
Dancing Teddies came about just after seeing the joyful London production of Billy Elliot – hence the Teddy in a tutu.  At one point everyone wears a tutu in Billy Elliot!

While still waiting for the new canvases, I couldn’t resist previewing the new designs on Twitter and Facebook even though there were no kits for customers.  But there are now!  An initial first batch of kits made; they are ready to go.
