Back From Market and New Fabric
Barb and I are back from cross stitch market which was held in Nashville. Our new fabric line arrived while we were gone. Nothing better than getting home and opening large boxes and seeing yards of new fabric waiting to be sewn into something fun!
As many cross stitch shop owners don't go to quilt market I'm giving you a sneak peek here on the blog. The prints are grouped in the basket above to give an idea of the color range.
The quilt under the plate shows a tiny bit of our large scale cross stitch print. It comes in several color ways. We love how it turned out....it's just wonderful! The three fabrics on the plate and the small hearts showcase some of our other prints. The name of this line is "Nature's Basket."
Cross stitch market was a lot of fun. We loved seeing the shop owners and having a chance to visit....although a very short visit, much fun nevertheless!. We always leave wishing market was a bit longer.
One of my favorite patterns from market was Barb's Honeybee Hill. The bees buzzing and the birds singing really capture an ideal summer day. The sewing box was made by Stephanie Elmer. She has a woodworking shop and has made these boxes as gifts for friends for years. She recently was convinced to turn this passion into a business venture. These boxes come in several colors and different sizes too. Her contact information is located inside the pattern. We took 20 boxes to market to sell to shop owners....they were gone in an hour!
Here's the deal.....I've got one box to give away. You all know how this works. Leave a message in the comment section. I will use the random number generator to find a winner. The contest will end on Friday and the winner will be announced on Saturday.
Good luck to all! Hope you win.
