So Kelly's post about Jade's finish and her being drawn to Susan Bates' designs got me thinking. Who are your favourite designers? Whose patterns do you find yourself drawn to and buying over and over again?
For me, it is definitely My Big Toe and Alessandra Adelaide. Although I do have a few Joan Elliott and InkCircles designs also. A lot of my other charts seem to be one artist/designer here, another there. I do have a few HAED and Mystic Stitch charts, but for the most part, they are all different artists.
WIP Elegant Irises by Amanda Butler Lazy Days by Mystic Stitch pg 1/24 (BAP) Nativity Story Table Topper pg 1/6 by Blackberry Lane Designs (BAP) Soffia by AAN Amazing Grace by MBT (BAP) pg 1/6 Names of God by MBT (BAP) pg 3-4/6 Baby Ark Sampler by Bothy Threads pg 1/4 Christmas Ornaments 0/11
To add from my previous post, I love Susan Bates designs but I also adore Durene Jones' designs and I have already pre-ordered her latest book. Shannon Christine is also a designer I look out for. Her designs are usually adorned with metallic threads and beads - both of which I love working with.
Moving away from freelance designers, Dimensions and Bothy are my two top designers, Joan Elliot/Design Works on occasion takes my interest and Anchors nature range. I used to love Anchors Tatty Teds, but since DMC took the design over he just isn't the same anymore.
