Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! We have tons of bright and cheerful blooming flowers in the shop, both of the needlepoint variety and the counted cross stitch variety.

(Note:  blog header is "Bird in Hand" by Blackbird Designs.

This sweet pin pillow is by With Thy Needle and Thread.
"Elizabeth Bordman" is loaded with gorgeous flowers, by Victorian Rose Needlearts.
Lindsay Lane Designs' "Lilac Festival."
Not forgetting the candy. A new shop model, "Chocolate Love" by Kit and Bixby.
By Jardin Prive, "Patchwork Aux Chiens."  So happy for the dog lover.
And for the cat lover, Val's "Blooming Kitty."
Another beautiful garden sampler and new shop model by Rosewood Manor, "Willowbrook Pathways."
We have received two glorious new reproduction samplers from Hands Across the Sea Samplers: Miss Mary Ann Bournes 1791; and
"Susanna Milne 1843."

Two of my recent acquisitions! By Pippin Design Studio, one of her fabulous tiny needlepoint fish with sparkly fibers. There are about a dozen different fish.  I'd love to stitch them up, have them finished and then string them on a silky cord and hang them up.
and "Beach Blessing" by Erica Michaels. I took a lot of photos of beach and mermaid and beach cottage charts when I was at the shop. Next time we'll have a beach roundup.
