The NASHVILLE NEEDLEWORK MARKET had been originally scheduled for the first weekend in March but because of COVID, was rescheduled for the last weekend in May.
It Has Now Been CANCELLED until 2022 due to the virus.
SO ... Janis Note of Noteworthy Needle has come to our 'rescue' with an Online Needlework Market!!
This Market will be open only to the shops who sign up to 'attend' (and of course, Stitches N Things HAS Signed Up!!!) .. but we're hoping the designers participating will give us lots of sneak peeks to post ahead of time.
If you want to see WHO will be showing and shops attending, click on the image!!
In late November, Heart In Hand introduced her design Throwback: Dazzlin' Deer ... as a chart with slight variations from her long ago retired 1998 limited edition kit "Dazzlin' Deer". I had found, in a search of my upstairs craft stash closet the actual ORIGINAL kit .. and of course, since I HAD to do this one when I purchased it back in 1998, I HAD to do it now! Mine will become another pin pillow for my holiday bread bowl collection.
Next up on my q-snaps is
La D Da's A Murder of Crows.
I'm stitching the two smaller designs individually on a scrap of 36ct Ale linen I had here at home using the called for fibers and will finish them as pin pillows, but finished back to back .. one crow on one side, the other crow on the flip side. I've done several little pillows that way in the past and like the look. I will use a chenille of some color as an edging when I get around to finishing them. This is my stitching project for today!
OK .. I think that's pretty much it. Two days off gives me some personal 'me and stitching time' and time to do book work/banking stuffs for the shop. I know, day off but .. it's the only time I have to get that stuff done.
So, until your next newsletter update next Sunday ...remember we are NOW CLOSED ON MONDAYS ... and
STITCH HAPPY ...
