Happy Saturday, all! We have an absolute deluge of new designs, fabric, stitching products and fun gadgets, fresh from the Nashville Market. There are so many new things, that a dozen or so photos just aren't going to do it, so check back frequently and we'll update over the next couple of days and next weekend too!
First of all, our blog header is from Long Dog. We love the colors (overdyed cottons). Based on the Book of Kells, of course and cleverly called "Kell's Kritters." I particularly enjoy the whiskers on all the animals, and of course, the bunnies! Speaking of bunnies, we'll have another amazing Long Dog for you tomorrow with lots of rabbits....
Next, something tiny and amazing, as always from Blackberry Lane. "Stitching by the Sea." Several designs come in the chart pack.(The next four photos are models in the shop.)
Can you see the tiny beads around the base of the sand castle?
How fabulous is this little fish, mounted in a shell?
And the newest ornament in the series:
We have several new designs from Chessie & Me: Here, "Buzzing Around Ewe"
"Grande Olde Flag Sampler." There are more, and of course, I want to stitch them all!
Old School Spools! Needle minders, or just plain old clever fridge magnets! I so love the idea of using the end of a spool to hold my needle! Lots of different colors.
"Winter Quakers," by Rosewood Manor. In this case, sold with a big package of Valdani threads, although you can also purchase the chart without them.
I bought one of these: although I had seen pictures of it around the 'net, the chart is even more compelling and pretty clutched in my hot little hand. "Mary McCallester" from Needlework Press. Recommended fibers are a combination of NPI and Belle Soie. Let us know if you'd like us to kit up this design for you--lots of hours of pleasure ahead!
Look at this darling pin pillow kit from Stacy Nash Primitives. The kit includes chart, linen, fabric for the back and floss.
I love this new design from the ladies at Blackbird designs, and I was happy to snap up one of these charts: "Honeybee Hill." Normally I don't bother with boxes and whatnot because I like to frame and hang my stitching, but just look at the next picture, and you'll see why I'm changing my mind.
Words do not describe how beautifully made this box is. It is a special order (so call the shop). And the Honeybee Hill design fits perfectly--this is not a tiny pin-pillow sized design, but a good-sized design set into the top of this very ample shaker-style box.
Remember that Woodlawn is continuing, just up the street, every day of the week but Tuesday. We're open every day during Woodlawn (March), including Tuesdays. We're open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 12:30 to 4:30. Stitch Nights are the first and third Wednesday of the month from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
