Nashville #3

Greetings again, all! Second post today, with more goodies from Nashville!

First up: Stacy Nash Primitives' "Eliza Poole Sampler." I love the boat.

In case you have some time on your hands, here are three spectacular Heaven and Earth Designs charts. I like a challenge, so I purchased the Halloween chart below, "Trick or Treat," by Randal Spangler. It has a whopping 90 pages of charts, calls for 87 colors of DMC, is 625 stitches wide by 890 high, and will call for a full yard of fabric (no need for overdyed fancy linen, as every bit is covered; what I look for in a case like this is something relatively inexpensive that feels nice to the touch). I'm sitting here stroking the package and gibbering....

Got flowers? Love this, want to stitch it. Love everything about it: the colors, the composition, the border, the flowers, the flowers, the flowers. Yes, it's been a long winter, hasn't it? "Cornwall Cottage Sampler" by Rosewood Manor.

Two Prairie Schoolers, both of whose names I have cut off. But a re-released set of Santas and


Chessie and Me, "Hope of Spring." Yup, there's still hope, although they're forecasting snow here for Wednesday.

The newest Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly. I think the cover is a snooze. Yawn. Ho-hum. But wait a minute.

Lookie what's inside! Oh my goodness, a huge, beautiful sampler with lots and lots of yellow (my favorite) and gold and green. All for the cost of just this magazine. A steal! Plus there are other good things inside as well.

One last repro sampler for today: With Thy Needle and Thread's "Elizabeth Clark 1822." Fabulous.

Back tomorrow with more!
