Reflections of New York CityReflections of New York City

The Ink Circles Reflections tour is finally making it to the United States! If you believe that, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn she'd like to sell you... along with the Chrysler Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and a host of other Big Apple icons. Stitched in earthy apple colors of a variegated silk, it would be just as at home in black on sparkly white. This design is 115 stitches square.


Reflections of ScotlandReflections of Scotland

Ink Circles brings you another new destination in the popular Reflections series. A tartan fence holds a flock of sheep and their hard-working border collie. You'll find castles and dragons, bagpipes and broadswords, thistles and more packed into the surrounding symmetrical mandala. Even Nessie makes a special appearance. This design is 115 stitches square.
