Marcy’s Musings

Happy New Year, everybody! Remember, if you’re snowed in, there’s no better excuse than that to stitch or read.

As for our site spotlight, all I can say is “Wow!” You will, too, when you take a look at the beautiful embroidery designs offered at this site (some are free).

Site Spotlight: Solaria Gallery

stoyanka1This is Stoyanka Ivanova. She lives in Bulgaria where she is an architect and a chief assistant professor at the University for Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy. She also has her own company called Solaria. With Solaria, Stoyanka is able to combine her love of painting and stitching.

I’m not kidding when I tell you that Stoyanka’s designs are some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.

Red Faberge Valentine HeartThis free design, a red Faberge Valentine heart, would be gorgeous to put in a card and send to someone special for Valentine’s Day. Other Valentine’s Day-related complimentary designs include a teddy bear holding a heart, a rose and blackwork tulips.

Lady with VeilAnd if you’re way more ambitious than I am, give this one a try. Isn’t this amazing? Look at the detail. I might get brave enough to give a try one day…but not today.

So, click on over to Solaria Gallery and see what gorgeous patterns you can find. After you complete one, be sure and share a photo with us!
