February 2016:  The fairy has started a 2016 designs page! Enjoy!

December 2015:  The fairy finally got the remaining 2015 designs up to date. There are two new designs since the last update in July:
Cathedraland Classic Facets.

September: Finally got around to posting my 2014 Designs. I'm splitting my time between too many things these days. I need to revamp the home page as well, so at the moment there are no images of the 2014 designs on this page.

 Due to popular demand, I now make bead packs available for most of my designs.

Welcome to Threedles!

Thanks for stopping in! Here you will find innovative needlework designs designed 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 creation of unique projects. I have been stitching for nearly forty years and have progressed through counted cross-stitch, embroidery and have settled with 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! 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 colorways 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 colorway. To that end, I have written up some hints that have improved my stitching results.
