Tor Rhuann Designs

Welcome to Tor Rhuann!

I came up with my first design in September 2006, a simple Celtic knot for a finished-item exchange. Less than a month later, the familiar longing for the seasonal changes that I miss living in the subtropics spurred me to design an autumn-themed piece. After that, the design ideas started flowing, and I decided it was time to put a name to this new facet of my life, and Tor Rhuann Designs was born. Perhaps someday I may design larger pieces, but at the moment, all of my designs are relatively small, and free to download and distribute. I hope that you enjoy them.

If you have stitched one of my designs and wish to be recognized in the gallery, please drop me an email! I always love to see how others envision my doodlings!
