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.

The Snow Queen

MD143

This floss woven woman was inspired by winter storms and Danish fairy tales I read when I was a little girl. Patterns of beads and sparkling stars adorn her heavy cloak. Her companion is equally adorned in
festive winter swirls and dripping crystal beads. I love the moments after the strong beautiful storms when
everything is pure and silent. I imagine this is why they name the storms after women.

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.

Moon Flowers

MD137

There was once a little girl who wanted nothing more in this world than her very own fairy, so her grandmother, who loved to garden, whispered a secret. We must plant a night-blooming flower garden, she said, and by the light of the crescent moon, a fairy will come. So they planted their garden with fragrant jasmine, night phlox, evening primrose, and moonflowers as large as saucers. When the moon rose, the flowers opened, releasing their perfume into the summer air. The little girl watched in astonishment as a dainty fairy arrived with her plump pillow and luxurious satin coverlets, her chestnut hair smelling of orange blossoms, her dress wreathed in
ribbons of lavender and garlands of tinkling beads.
Now that you know the secret, you, too, can plant a garden and find your very own fairy.

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!
