In the Beginning fabrics has introduced a new line named after my daughter! Well, I doubt she was the actual inspiration but the name is the same. I kind of like it, and kind of don’t. It’s a little bit of florals, bandanna-ish prints, and country colors. OK, it’s weird. But I might have to get a small bit anyway because mothers do silly things like that.
I’m still making progress on my 2009 project, taking it one stitch at a time. My apologies to those of you who have seen this info a hundred times now, but the title is “His Name is Jesus” and the free chart can be found on the Joyful Expressions website.
Elizabeth has decided it’s time to redecorate her room and had Katie helping her choose colors. Oh dear. There’s no telling what those two will come up with.
I’m just posting this pic because I like the way it turned out. To be honest I’m not a big fan of purple (nevermind that I’m typing this in a half purple room) but I think these scissors fobs look pretty.
And here’s a close-up of the handsome beast, who I’ll have the pleasure of babysitting again in a week or so. Nice house, stocked fridge, jacuzzi, sweet cats… I do love my petsitting ‘vacations’!
In less than a month, I’ll be off to the Nashville TNNA show! Nashville is one of four needlework trade shows held annually by TNNA, the National NeedleArts Association. (The others are California in January, Columbus in June, and St. Charles in September) Here’s a list of exhibitors, if you’re interested. I won’t be exhibiting, but I’ll be working there in a friend’s suite… I enjoy going because I get to see what’s new, visit with some of my friends who I only get to see a few times each year (at shows), and catch up with some of my favorite shop owners as well.
Oh- speaking of stitching shops (weren’t we?), I just found some pictures that I had taken of the newly expanded Cecilia’s Samplers in Branson, MO. I meant to do a blog post when I returned from there last time and forgot all about it! I’ll do that sometime this week, promise. It’s a neat place.
