Orna Willis is a force of nature. She has a free spirit attitude that is game for anything. Mix that with her love of color and design and magic happens. I’ve known Orna for over 15 years (yes, we are dating ourselves here).
We were fortunate to have Orna at Bedecked and Beadazzled this weekend and it was a great event. Such a great event that this is going to be a multipart/multiday blog post. Sooooo much to share.
Let’s start with oohing and ahhing over the wonderful models that Orna sent. This was really a site to behold. She sent just a portion of her collection of amazing sttitched pieces and I filled walls with them. You can’t begin to choose a favorite. Each is yummier than the next. I really don’t know how she got them all stitched. There are just so many!
All are counted canvaswork. You start with blank canvas and then follow diagrams to complete the pattern. Most of her charts have multiple color ways or you can create your own. The really cool thing is that stitched in different colors they rock out to entirely new and different designs.
If anything catches your eye, call or email and we’ll send it your way. We’ll send threads too if you would like. We’re easy like that.
