May DESIGN

Yet another last minute post for my SAL ;)


What project are you talking about this month?

My designer of the month for May is Glendon Place. 'Stop!', you might yell, 'What did you stitch by them?' True, I haven't shared it here yet, but I did start the Red Velvet Cake I got for my birthday  this year last weekend. It's a mandala like design, so I'm stitching in circles startin in the middle, and here's the innermost round.

Have you stitched a project by this designer before?
Nope, not yet :)

Would you buy/stitch a design by this designer again? Why/Why not?


Yes! In fact, I NEED most of the other A-Maze-ing Desserts, and have wishlisted quite some more...

What made you choose this particular design/designer?

I really, really like the A-Maze-Ing Desserts series by Glendon Place. I've seen pictures of Tiramisu and Plum Pudding on another blog, but Red Velvet Cake was the one I fell most in love with instantly. I just LOVE the colours (and stitching with those silks is delicious!), and the shapes, there are hearts in the border, it's just adorably cute :)

Did you notice anything that distinguished this designer from others? - For example specialty stitches, fractionals, much/little 'confetti', beads, special fibers...
I think Glendon Place's pattern can be devided in two groups: One, ornamental/mandala like patterns, often worked with silks and other variengated threads and using beads, and two, funny designs, mostly for Halloween, with great detail and colors. I love both of them, and want to work on both, if I can find the time. This design is very clear to read, only uses five or six colors (and I think four or five kinds of beads), and is a real joy to stitch :)

    1. It was for me as well. But I might still pick up more once (or even before) this is finished

  5. Great choice of designer this month. I love those pudding designs but I could never make my mind up which to stitch!
    I have one GP design, it's an Autumn alphabet I bought on impulse in a sale. It's really big!
