Primitive Needle Trunk Show

Hi, those of you out in blogland that happen upon this blog....I just wanted to let you know I added a slideshow of the Primitive Needle trunk show that is currently on display at Inspired Needle through May 3, 2010 to the blog sidebar. If you live within driving distance of Chicagoland, come on out and see it for yourself. The models are amazing. The framing is amazing. The sheer number of models in this show is amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. We'd love for you to come and ooh and aah in person!

I hope everyone is having a fresh, Spring-y weekend!

Angel Train is at the Station!

Woohoo! I don't get to do the happy dance too often, but I have been dancing all day. I finally put the last stitches in Angel Train. I love this piece. Even though the border boxes took forever to stitch I really think I would do another "train"....maybe not for a while, though. Here are a few pics. As soon as I pick out a frame, I'll have to do an update.

For shop news, The Primitive Needle trunk show arrived today. I popped in the shop today to do a few things (I'm not open on Mondays) and found all the boxes. Luckily, I share a building with the florist next door and she will accept my packages when I'm not there. There were FOUR huge boxes so I'm sure it will take all morning at least to unpack and hang on the wall. I can't wait to see the models. The Primitive Needle is another favorite designer....sigh, there are a LOT of favorites!

Thanks for reading and for all your nice comments!
