My goodness, what a tardy poster I am! Quite literally January is just a blur today and now it's February 10th?
The other thing that means is that the Nashville Needlwork Market is only nine days away...ok, had to have a couple deep breaths there. Market time here is crazy, the warehouse looks like it's exploded but it will all be put in boxes and on their way on Monday.
My very best friend in the whole wide world is coming with me to market. She's always wanted to come along, so we are headed to Nashville on Tuesday. I've never done anything in Nashville besides go to the hotel, restaurants and the airport. So we are coming in two days early to be tourists. We've never had a bad time in 32 years so I expect this will be no different. Here we are a couple of months ago when I went to visit the ranch in New Mexico...
These are new pretties from Plum Street Samplers from her Hare series. We framed them for her and I think they are both adorable.
Ok. I know I've said it before but I will say it again, Diane from Little House Needleworks has come out with a design that is my new favorite. The design is called "Rosey" and stitched with lots of Crescent Colours cotton floss. We also frame it in a Michelle, Fleamarket Icing. I love her little shoes!
For this market, we will have 3 new cotton flosses and 3 new silk flosses. A new automatic with Little House Needlework and Crescent Colours called, "Seasons". It's a four part series, with "Spring" debuting in March. The thread pack will include the pattern and one skein of Belle Soie silk thread. The designs are monochromatic and have color according to the season. Spring will be stitched with "Weathered Vine" with a stitch count of 90 x 90. We have our models stitched on 30 ct Weeks Dye Works Cocoa linen. Each design measures 6" x 6" .
Well, that's all for now. I'm off to fill orders. Even though we're focusing on Market, there are still wonderful customers sending orders. Have a wonderful Thursday!!
