Miss Cherry Blossom

MD153

Miss Cherry Blossom

She wanders through a tranquil lush garden.
The air is full with the scent of warming spring earth. Handwoven silk flutters lightly over carpets of petals. Her hairpins are bright and sparkling with their myriad of twinkling beads.
The patterns dancing on her gown reflect the pink that has covered the countryside. She moves through this “Snowstorm of Cherry Blossoms”, where all the most romantic scenes in movies are set. We invite you to celebrate this otherworldly blizzard of tranquility in every delightful detail of this elegant pattern.

Blossom Goddess

MD146

Let love take root and weave a garden of calm beauty with floss. This golden haired zen goddess is draped in powder blue silk. A halo of blossoms frame her figure. Petals and flowers flow and dance about. I drew this beauty to represent the moment of harmony and peace I experience whenever I make something with my hands.

Florentina

MD138

This pattern was directly inspired by a trip to Florence Italy. I was
honored to observe the cracked, slightly yellowed, sculptural paint strokes of the Renaissance. There was a mysterious power in the hundred petalled roses strewn on the grass in a tapestry. The locks of Botticelli’s Venus silently flow. Entire gardens were embroidered on dresses. The architecture was dripping with the magic carvings of ancient artisans. This design is my interpretation of the
otherworldly beauty frozen in the glance of a painted maiden.

Christmas in London

MD136

The air is filled with excitement and anticipation as Audrey awaits her guests’ arrival on Christmas Day in London. Crafted of rose-pink silk with a smokey-grey taffeta bustle, her dress crackles and shimmers as she moves through the parlor, straightening the stockings on the mantel and the fragrant jewel-toned garlands on the tree. But no one may be more entranced than the children peering from the balustrade above, for they accompanied Audrey on her annual trip to Fortnum and Mason’s to order their Christmas hamper. With their noses pressed against the glorious and decadent shop windows, the first snow falling on their silent wonder, these little ones had no idea that their glamourous mother could make such a posh holiday scene come to life. Soon the bells on the clock tower will chime, and the family will enjoy their Christmas pudding before they open their stockings and gifts. A Happy Christmas to All!

At the Met

MD135

The stage is set for the premier of Mozart’s Don Giovanni as an enigmatic woman enters the Metropolitan Opera House, the crowd parting before her as she glides up the lavish red and gold staircase towards the most expensive seats in the house. Her blue-black gown glitters with hand-sewn beads in a pattern evoking the creations of Gustav Klimt. Her delicate fingers grasp a jeweled shawl made of precious crystals that catch the light, reflecting her rainbow-hued silk sash. Framed at the entrance of her private box by an elaborate goldwork design, she pauses a moment to take in the sights and sounds of the orchestra tuning before taking her seat behind the curtain. Like an actress who plays many roles over a lifetime, the woman behind the stunning headdress and aloof expression remains a mystery to all.
