Evergreen Lane - New pattern
Our warehouse has moved! We house our books and patterns with my husband's computer company. We rent space he doesn't need. Sharing space has worked great for us. But Dave decided to move his business to another location right after Christmas. This meant that Blackbird Designs had to move too. Wish I could describe just how much fun this process has been....but I'm going to spare all of you. Luckily Barb's very strong nephews helped with our move.
Last weekend, I slipped out of town (when Dave wasn't looking) with 2 of my dear friends. Flona decided we should drive to Round Top, TX for the winter antique show. I've read about Round Top for years, so I was very anxious to go. The winter show is smaller than the spring show....but it was good to find our way around without the huge crowds. Flona arranged for us to stay at the Round Top Farmhouse #9.
This is the kitchen area ....isn't it sweet? It was set up for breakfast....just right for a quick bite before we left for the show. These are pictures from the Round Top Farmhouse site...it was rainy during our stay....not a ray of this lovely sunshine was to be seen. (Not that it mattered to us. We were on the search for antiques!)
Flona and Linda stayed in this cute bedroom.
I got the bottom bunk! It reminded me of younger years when my sister and I slept in bunks. I slept on the top then...but didn't think I could get up there now.
Royers Round Top Cafe was pictured in a Country Living magazine years ago. It's one place I wanted to visit after reading the article. We saved one night to have dinner there. The place was packed and very fun. We all had a great meal plus we tried their pies for dessert.
I had to get my picture taken with Bud, the pie man. He's pretty famous around these parts...and very kind to pose too!
We had our picture taken right before dinner. (L to R) Flona, me and Linda. Nothing like a girl's weekend to brighten our spirits.
Evergreen Lane is going to the printer tomorrow. (#11 of the Anniversaries of the Heart series) It will ship out to the distributors in a week. Look for it in your local shops in a couple of weeks. The last pattern in this series will be released at the Nashville cross stitch market. We are getting final details ready and will announce more about market soon.
