Greetings, All! We are thrilled to see so many new faces in the shop. Carloads of eager stitchers, having just visited the Woodlawn needlework show, which we believe is extra compelling this year. Everyone who sees the show gets jazzed up to stitch their fingers to bloody stumps. I know I did; I came away with literally dozens of projects I want to stitch.
Here are two notable exhibits (we are not allowed to photograph the actual exhibits, so we'll show you the charts instead), stitched by one of our customers, John K. John stitched each on very high count linen, and they are jaw-droppingly gorgeous:
I get a little overwhelmed by the size of some of the projects, and it's a relief to see some of the smaller stitches. Here, Pineberry Lane's "Tokens of Affection."
Also by Samplers Revisited, "Sarah Green 1849" and
Speaking of spring, next time we'll take a look at some spring and Easter projects!
