Puzzling and Amazing

We're very excited here at Ruth Schmuff is offering some counted canvas interpretations of painted canvases by Ada Haydon that are truly marvelous. Susan Alanson selected the stitches that bring texture and life to these colorful designs.

Up first, the "puzzling" part of this post, is Alpine Puzzle, a tantalizing mix of purples, blues, and greens with a touch of black.

I love the bright spots of the Thread Gatherer Silk 'N' Colors chartreuse silk floss. Check out all the threads:


Next up, the "amazing" bit, is Orchid Maze, a blast of pinks, oranges, and greens with a touch of brown.

Again, the bright green jumps out at you, this time in Rainbow Gallery Splendor, Needlepoint Inc. silk, and Kreinik.

We've got a limited quantity to start out with, but we expect to keep these kits in inventory. We're shipping now!

Stop by and check out all the new stuff we've been adding over the last few weeks. And don't forget the Tools and Accessories. You never know what you might find there.
