Welcome To Threedles!

June 12, 2016: Welcome to the new site. We hope you find it an improvement. Your (constructive) comments are appreciated. I will try to have the web fairy accommodate  your requests (to the best of her abilities). There are sure to be some revision pains encountered. Each design is accessible directly through the listing on the left, or you can browse by year as with the prior site.

Thanks for stopping in! Here you will find innovative needlework designs created by Kurdy Biggs for stitchers working with counted canvas. My designs are inspired by my love of unique stitches, threads, color and beading, with an emphasis on learning new stitches and creating unique projects. I have been stitching for nearly forty years and have progressed through counted cross-stitch, embroidery and have settled on counted (canvas) needlework because of the large variety of results I can achieve. After years of stitching other designer's patterns, I've virtually run out of patterns that intrigue me! So I have set off to create designs for myself and others.  Browse through my designs for yourself and see what I have been up to, and what you could be stitching on in the near future!

Each printed design includes all the color ways I have stitched for the design (canvas, threads and beads). My printed designs are full color to assist the stitcher in distinguishing the different threads in the patterns. In my patterns I have incorporated everything I have found helpful and tried to fix everything that frustrated me in the designs I previously stitched. I welcome your feedback in ways to make my designs easier to follow. I want you to be successful! I have included any errata to the printed design (e.g. substitute threads) in the page associated with that design and color way. To that end, I have written up some hints that have improved my stitching results.
