PATTERN DETAILS

"I wanted a Fakahatchee ghost orchid, in full bloom, maybe attached to a gnarled piece of custard apple tree, and I wanted its roots to spread as broad as my hand and each root to be only as wide as a toothpick. I wanted the bloom to be snow-white, white as sugar, white as lather, white as teeth. I knew its shape by heart, the peaked face with the droopy mustache of petals, the albino toad with its springy legs. It would not be the biggest or the showiest or the rarest or the finest flower here, except to me, because I wanted it." - Susan Orlean, The Orchid Thief: A True Story of Beauty and Obsession The "Orchid Fragrance" embroidery designs are part of a series of embroidery I've designed to apply to jeans to make them more fashionable very inexpensively. Dress up a skirt or capris or shorts even. Your teen would be so excited to have you add this cool design to her boyfriend jeans! Or in my case, a 40-something who's back in the dating world - yikes! Enjoy! Note: No perfume or fragrance will be coming out of this pattern when you print it unless you have a really good imagination. I'm just sayin'. Much love, ya'll!

"Love is the only reality and it is not a mere sentiment. It is the ultimate truth that lies at the heart of creation." - Rabindranath Tagore Wendy Christine Basham is my given name. No doubt I was born with a threaded needle in my tiny hand. Since I was little I've loved writing stories and sewing stuff. One of my first projects was a cross-stitched happy green frog with bright mushrooms - each "x" was like an inch high. My mom and aunts are avid quilters, jewelers, crocheters (is that a word?), knitters, etc. - so we drink batik dust in our afternoon green tea. Quilts, cross stitches, sewing, and artwork are my design areas. Raspberry Lane Crafts (www.raspberrylanecrafts.com) houses my paper patterns, sewing supplies, and artwork. "The Art of Wendy Christine" is mainly SouthWest-style made into botanical prints with names such as "Mission Rose", "Blue Stone" and "Liberty" and my new collection of crosses like "Stained Glass" and "Cruzar Amarillo" in vivid colored pencil. When I'm not at the theatre enjoying plays, drinking tea, or designing patterns, I host a bi-monthly environmental news podcast "The Ocean to Ozone Show" (www.ocean-to-ozone.org) promoting conservation and celebrating the beautiful places and creatures of our planet. An honoring bow to you enjoying the sewing and artwork as much as I do. Have a lovely day!
