2017 Releases

Ask your favorite Local or Online Needlework Shop to stock Ink Circles charts.

These newest three charts are now available only in shops. Older charts can be purchased through my online shop.

Snowdrops

NEW Snowdrops

This is the first of a series of stained glass style mandalas featuring flowers. Snowdrops are among the first flowers to show up in early spring, so they make a fitting first flower to be featured. This design was stitched in a dozen shades of DMC Threads on Picture This Plus hand-dyed 32 count linen. The design size is 89 stitches square. SRP $8

Red Velvet

NEW Red Velvet

Another monochromatic mandala featuring rococo flourishes and flowers. Use your favorite floss and fiber color combination or create a unique multicolored version. If you stitch it in black it can become Black Velvet. David Lynch or Bobby Vinton fans can stitch it in blue. The design size is 91 stitches square, regardless of which color you chose. SRP $8

Swimming Hole

NEW Swimming Hole: Bad Neighborhood #6

A few years back, Ink Circles started a series of scenes featuring houses and homes that seemed pleasant enough on the surface but that had a bit more going on when you look closer. Whether the pond had a pink tentacled monster or an ancient Indian burial ground lay below the adobe, it was time to move out. The sixth and final chart in the “Bad Neighborhoods” series invites you to visit the pool house. Just a warning, though, the deep end is about to get very deep. For the record, star-nosed moles are excellent swimmers. "Swimming Hole" was stitched in Gentle Arts Threads on Weeks Dye Works 30 count linen. SRP $8

 

Remember those RYOs?

We've revealed the final PDF of a new series for 2017! These are Celtic knots and labyrinths, mandalas of a different sort, varying in style, size, and complexity. There are 6 different charts in the "Knot My 2017" collection, plus a few smaller bonus charts.

Join the SAL Price for the series is $30 USD.
If you want charts sent to a different email than your PayPal then be sure to tell me!

These are color customizable using several different techniques that are fully explained in the first installment. You may subscribe and receive electronic versions during 2017, after which they will go to a print-only format. We'll be sharing ideas and progress over on the Ink Circles Mandala Stitchers group.
