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.

Celebrating today that I am back designing again after a difficult injury that spread to both arms making it impossible to knit, crochet and doing basic things everyday. I want to thank my amazing family who were my hands and arms during this time. They truly are amazing and I am so blessed that I have the most amazing husband in the world who stopped to look after me when I couldn’t. I am so grateful for everything you do. I also want to thank my amazing kids who also became my hands and helped me everyday including cooking! (I now have some awesome cooks in the house!!) I wouldn’t have made it through this time without them. Thank you all so very very very much! My favourite thing in the whole world is being with you! You guys are my everything! THANKS!
As an Artist it was very difficult not to create everyday like I was used to. At first it was almost painful to not knit or crochet creating what inspired me that day, but as time went on and I began to let go and take the time to rest my injured arms. I began to relax and design in my mind. Though it was a very physically painful time it also gave my mind and arms a rest which I found calms your creativity and lets you fine tune things. Sometimes set backs are actually steps forward, we just can’t see them at the time as we get lost in the emotion and hardship of the moment. I have been able to crochet a bit this week and finished this scarf I had been working on prior to my injury. It felt so good to create again.
The Floral Architectural Essence Scarf is a combination of two scarves (a long two tones scarf with slits I put in and a vine frieze scarf woven through them. I designed a floral brooch that can be used on and off this design or other items in your wardrobe. I also made an all ivory one I will post later. I haven’t decided if I am selling this one yet as I love it so much I may have to keep it. 🙂

It has been a long hard 10 weeks since I injured my right arm especially since I haven’t been able to knit or crochet since then and still not able to. I have to say it is almost torture for a designer not to design and create everyday, but at the same time it gives you rest (even though your kicking and screaming LOL). The injury progressed to my left arm due to over use looking after the right arm and then angered my neck and shoulders so just when I thought I was making head way everything was a mess. Glad to say that this week I finally feel like I am getting back to doing some things myself again and it feels great. Part of my injuries was over use from working to hard on my creations, but you know you just have to knit and crochet as it’s so much fun. I did try to dabble a little with more pattern writing, perhaps I will work on that again soon.
I hope in the next few months that I can once again pick up my needles and create new pieces. Luckily I was working on new designs all year prior to my injuries and will have more new designs on my Etsy store soon. You can also link with www.valeriebaberdesign.com for my new Etsy Website.

This design shown in two different stone colours has the “Wired to the Past” design essence that I am continuing to work on this year. You can wear this design as a poncho/shawl or a scarf depending on where you fasten the buttons and brooch. The brooch can be worn on or off this piece. See the slide show below for the various ways to wear this new design. Other styles and colour will follow as I have time to make them.
