Greetings, all! I thought you might like to see some progress on some of the projects I've bought in the last year or so from the shop. All of these designs are currently in the shop, in case you feel like jumping in and joining me!
First, Scarlett House's "Christmastide at Holly House."
My progress to date. I am using 40 count Lakeside and the called-for silk threads:
"Mary Ann Crumley 1829" by Samplers Not Forgotten:
I am working in 40 count light examplar by Lakeside, using most of the called-for silks. I did not care for the pale peach on the border flowers (or are they strawberries?), so I am using a light- to medium pink shade of silk called Pink Flamingo which I think shows up better on the fabric I chose.
Also by Mirabilia, and full of beads, the stitcher of this beauty brought her in to choose a frame:
Notice the exquisite beading.
Another one of our very creative stitchers ordered a burlap coffee bag from the internet and is embellishing it. It's very large and quite breathtaking:
We have quite a few new fabrics in the shop, including the very high count Lakeside and these beauties:
This is "Triora Witches Trials"
and "All Hallows Needles' Queen,"
the prettiest Christmas ornaments:
And this adorable stocking is a special edition, too: "Never Far Apart."
One last very special thing. For those of you who have heard about/visited/exhibited your work in the Woodlawn Needlework Show, here's the Woodlawn Sampler by Woodlawn's own Nelly's Needlers.
