Twisted Band sampler from Northern Expressions
Sunday, March 2, 2014
Since finishing Giovanni's Alphabet, I did not really get back to my stitching for quite awhile. The prospect of going back at one of my larger projects was not appealing so I coasted. When I got back from Nashville with all these lovely small ornament type patterns I was able to stitch again.
These three red birds are from Myrtle Grace designs and were fun to work on.
This one is stitched with Valdani's new Australian Wool which I won in a draw. I wouldn't use it again but I like the bird.
This bird is stitched with white perle cotton...I love that it is so white.
I stitched this one with PB10 Treasure braid. You can sort of see the sparkles.
This is Spiral Pig from Sam Sarah designs. I am not too happy with the colour I picked for the larger wing but I do not have my full range of colours here and I had to make do.

Oh I have had such a wonderful time...
I'll start with my favourite chart from this years show and then maybe add a few more , then add more pictures as the week progresses. Once back in Florida I will update my website as well and will be emailing you if you had asked for specific things...
So this is my favourite...
I will stitch the little porkers and make them into ornaments!
A few more...
Red Velvet cake
And some sweet new athletes from Eileen of Handblessings.
I had breakfast with Eileen and her husband this morning and they are delightful!
I had lunch with Anne Frazier who owns Gloriana Silks. What a lovely and fascinating woman. She gave me a sample of a new colour, soon to be released. By the way her silks are wonderful to work with. I had Gionanni's Alphabet with me and she was happy to see her thread stitched up. The woman from Picture This Plus was also happy to see her fabric with an interesting chart stitched onto it.
My treasures are all packed into the suitcase with very little room to spare. I am tired but not as beat as last night, so I will have another early night with a bit of TV and my kindle secure in the knowledge that I will get to fondle all my lovely stuff again later in the week as I inventory it, price it and add it to the website.
I also got to visit with Jeannette Douglas and she was asking for you Dani.
