Spring is Coming! Spring is Coming! Spring is Coming!
I feel like we are finally seeing an end to this weather. The sun is shining (right now) and it is supposed to get to 59 degrees in Naperville today. (fingers and toes crossed) The wind is raging so I do think someone has really annoyed Mother Nature though. I hope you are all getting some time to stitch and feel rejuvenated with your craft. I am experiencing some great progress on my personal piece.
My current in-store piece is a 3 part canvas set from Maggie, designed by Frank Bielec. As most of you know I am not a fan of anything random so check out Santa's beard and mustache. Both stitches are from "Stitches to Go". If you don't own this book think about it. The possibilities it provides are endless. I've got an idea for a very unique finish so stay tuned.
I just wish I new how to stitch in my sleep; just think how much I could get so much more accomplished.
We are getting ready for market which is scheduled for the last weekend in March (3/30-4/1). The Spring Needlepoint Show will be held in Orlando, FL and is a brand new market with over 100 vendors. I'm looking forward to finding some new treasures. As always if there is something you would like us to order please call the store. 630-946-6216. I will post pictures to our Facebook page if at all possible, but I do love surprising everyone with what I find. Stay tuned for the date of our Market reveal event. TRUNK SHOWS:
