Nashville I

Greetings, all! We will be doing a few posts for the new goodies that have arrived from the Nashville Market. I'll start today with some gorgeous samplers. First, "Maria Jenuaria" by Queenstown Sampler Designs. Stitched on antique white, it's like a beacon on the wall, pointing to each of the fascinating and unique motifs. Notice that each of the borders is different. Fun! We have a Queenstown trunk show in the shop. Not the best angle--I'll try and get a better shot on Wednesday.
We also have a Samplers Revisited trunk show in the shop. This is "Hester Kingham 1832." I will try to take another shot of this on Wednesday also; I so want to capture the dear face peeping out of the upstairs window!
From Noteworthy Needle, "Sarah Chapman."
Milady's Needle: "Mary Ann Lynn 1855." I love the verse on procrastination.
Giulia Punti Antichi's "Ann Hull." I love Ann's gorgeous blues, golds and yellow.
"Mary Pilgrim's Sampler Pillow and Needle Rest" from Abby Rose Designs. Sweet.
From the Scarlett House: "Mary Cook 1795," a wonderful reproduction with adorable critters, including a pair of lions.
By Terri Bay Needlework, "Rhapsody in White."  Intriguing and completely different; I'd like to try it...
Stacy Nash Primitive Designs' "Adam and Eve on the Farm," which comes with the small tray shown in the photo (my photo doesn't show the tray well, but it's beautifully finished).  I love the critters here, especially the spotted rooster, the sheep, the goat and even the snake.
By Little House Needleworks: "Homestead Sampler."
"Flag of Glory Needle Book" by Chessie and Me. 
These are bright Q-snap clamps. I am a devoted Q-Snap user, and I plan to buy these brightly colored items.
With Thy Needle and Thread has lots of fabulous new designs; here are four of them. "Good Deeds,"
"Spring Frolic at Bunny Hill,"
"The Gilmour House Sewing Tray," and
"Spring Delivery."
Is anyone channeling Adele with this wonderful phone case? This is not new from Nashville, but it caught my eye in the shop, and I had to show it to you.

The inspiring Woodlawn Plantation Needlework Show is in full swing and takes place throughout March every day but Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We are just down the street, so please drop by and visit us! Congratulations to the winners and to all the exhibitors who pour their hearts and talent into their craft and then share it so we can all enjoy.

To order or for questions, please call us at 703-360-4600. We are located at 8800 F Pear Tree Village, on Route 1 in the Mount Vernon Section of Alexandria (look for the McDonalds). Throughout the month of March because of the Woodlawn Show, we are open seven days a week--Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 12:30-4.

Happy Stitching, and I'll be back tomorrow with more photos of the Nashville goodies!
