Here is a close up of the barn. Love that barn!!!!!!!
This is the retreat bag, scissors and scissor fob that we received from Tomorrow's Heirlooms at the retreat. Isn't it just the best???? Love it!!!! Thanks Pam and Kim.
Here are the charts that I bought at the retreat. Now, mind you, I have many, many other Scarlett House charts at home......I love Tanya's designs. These are all new ones. Once you see models all stitched up and charted.....well...that really increases the stash!!!! Henrietta Binns 1837 is a chart that my friend Teresa bought at market. When I saw her copy a few days before the retreat I was obsessed with it.....then when I saw the model at the retreat boutique...well, it was all over. I love this one!!!!!!! Tanya said that Henrietta Binns is the quintessential name for a sampler and I think she is right!
I have been OBSESSING over the next three samplers for months and months!!!!!!! They are huge. They are masterpieces. I have seen them all done as models and some in my friend Brenda's home. They are beyond amazing. I had to have them in my collection to dream on and to stitch someday soon!!!!!!!
My plan is to keep going on Heartland Sampler until it is finished. That will be a huge achievement for me because I am know to flit around from project to project and hardly finish anything. But I love this sampler so much and I want to stitch these big ones too. I need to prove to myself that I can do it.......so away I go!!!!
I know I have said it before, but I have to say it again.....my stitching friends just mean the world to me. They enrich my life. My stitching/blogging, IG and FB friends too!!! You all make the world a better place!!!!!!!
