A collection of elegant rose inspired designs including 3 styles of scarves and 2 lengths of hand/arm warmers. The Elegant Rose collection is a great addition to any wardrobe and can be made with beautiful neutrals as shown or add colour with the base one colour and the flowers and leaves another. See more information or to purchase on my Etsy store. Etsy store: www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com
For the Elegant Rose Collection I used beautiful yarn from Sweetgeorgia Yarns in the worsted weight yarn. Most other worsted weight yarns will work for this design. Try a hand painted effect with solid coloured roses to pop the floral accent or a beautiful neutral colour as shown for an elegant touch. The inspiration for these designs is a walk through a rose garden enjoying a beautiful warm day and to keep these memories near to warm you on the colder days of winter. The design on the base of the pieces is inspired by the stone tracery of Gothic Architecture of the past on beautiful cathedrals and buildings. These buildings were often embellished with beautiful stone tracery of leaves, flowers and vines. I love adding an architectural essence to my designs.

The new Stained Glass Arm warmers are perfect to keep your hands warm and cozy this season. Available at http://www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com and http://www.valeriebaberdesign.com
Stained Glass series is a collection I have been working on this year in relation to my Architectural Design Project. The Stained Glass panel beside the traditional style was also made by myself years ago. I loved making the Stained Glass then and always want to design some with yarn.
The Gothic Cathedrals of the past adorn many amazing Stained Glass windows that add colour to the stone walls. I have designed two versions so far with a beige stone coloured base and a more contemporary feel on one style and a traditional essence with an ivory base and brighter Stained Glass on this style. The beige contemporary version has rod iron that surrounds the glass window gently sewn in beside the stained glass panels in the center in a subtle manner. The ivory traditional style has a bold colour way with the rod iron place one either side of the window panel in a stronger essence to go with the more bold traditional design.
There will be more colours coming soon.
They are also available soon at the Alberta Craft Council in both Edmonton and Calgary, see their website for addresses. I have many one of a kind designs including scarves, and hand warmers at these two locations.
