Nashville Market, etc.

 I am so lucky to live near so many great stitching shops!!!  I was able to see the Market nights at Inspired Needle and Tomorrow's Heirlooms.  Both absolutely fabulous shops and, if you can, you must visit both!  Below are some of my new purchases.

I already started the Liberty Eagle pincushion from the new BBD release.  However, I took a picture of the front of the chart! The pincushion design is pictured on the back.  I could just stitch BBD charts for the rest of my life and be happy.  Barb and Alma are geniuses! 

I bought these two new BBD charts too.  Don't know when I will stitch them; but one has to have them to ogle don't you agree????

I did not intend to start another series.  However, did you see the upcoming release for the LHN Christmas village???  It is a train station.  I saw that and I was in!!!!  Love, love, love trains and Christmas time.  My friend Teresa had the idea of stitching all or part of the series in a straight line on one piece of fabric.  Of course, that means I will be doing the same thing.  We got some 30 count Northern Cross fabric to stitch on.  I love the look and feel of this fabric.

That led to kitting up this LHN sheep virtue with the same fabric.  I did not buy the first one in the series; but that may change.

This is not a new chart; but I recently saw it done on linen (instead of perforated paper) on the Inspired Stitcher's blog!!!  GorgeousClick here to see it on her blog.  It was just so cool looking on the linen; had to add this to the stash.

Here is my progress so far on my Santa's village, Poinsettia House.  I also got the next one in the series.  Mrs. Claus' cookie house. 

My friend Brenda has these cool needle minders......whale and spool of thread.  I have admired them for months.  Our friend Teresa went online and found where they are sold in we all ordered various ones.  These are the two I got.  Love!!!   Here is a link to the shop:  CLICK HERE

Teresa made this amazing scissor keeper for each of us at Christmas.  Isn't it just too, too gorgeous!!!!!!!!!  She included the gorgeous scissors too!!!

All of the pictures up until this one really look cool, crisp, clean and uncluttered don't they????????  Well, here is the real truth.  This is the table next to my stitching seat.  What a mess!  I should really go straighten that up before I start stitching today!!

Hope everyone has a good Sunday and a great week!

Thanks for sharing the pic of your stitching table. Looks just like mine. I have the same table and EOS lip balm. Enjoy stitching.

Your stitching table looks like mine!! A little messy, but with all the things that we love. Can I ask where you got the whale needleminder. It's adorable?

Your stitching table looks normal to me! I'm so jealous that you have two shops you're able to visit in person. I have to be content with the on-line Market reports... it's just not the same as seeing things in person.

Oh, I wouldn't know what to do if I had real needlework shops to walk into! I like what you've bought and I've been admiring the new BBD designs as well.

I was thinking the other day that I need to organize my needlework table too, so you're "normal". I would love to know the name of the shop for the needle minders too.

Happy Stitching!

Super purchases and pictures, Laura! I, too, am curious as to where you got your whale! I think you need to swoop everything in the last picture either into a LB or a VB.

If you want to shop the smart way, then it will be with the help of internet. It is a good option to make purchases from online stores that offers wide range of designer wear. Most websites are known to offer discounts Christian Louboutin on selected designer clothes and accessories. There might be instances where you will be able to obtain even more discounts on selected branded items. Becoming a member on one of these websites will benefit you a lot. You could then receive updates and emails about the sale of your favourite brands. There are sample sales which include the retail businesses getting rid of excess merchandise. These kinds of sales provide a chance to obtain cheap designer clothes. It can be a little difficult to know the date and venue of the sample sales. However, there are websites that provide this information as well.

Great stash acquisitions! I deliberately visited Inspired Needle before Market--she had a bunch of items waiting for me there, so I did enough damage to my plastic at that time. Love all your WIPs and your darling needle minders. And your stitching table looks just like mine!

Great stash, Laura!

I'm the one who stitched the BBD design on linen! You can go see it here:

I'm glad you liked it and that I inspired you to get the chart. It's fun!

Melody said...

Yes, you are lucky to live close to great shops! I have to travel a ways to get to one. I have been to Inspired Needle once, and thought it was a great shop, it is about 130 miles from where I live.

Love your new stash. The fabric looks beautiful. I like the LHN building series too. :)

Hiya Laura, catching up on your blog, very enjoyable! That Northern Cross linen is one I've not yet seen/felt, color looks terrific from here. Wondering what color you chose and if you might offer a review of why you like it? Have a great weekend to come:)
