More Stitchin'

Just what's in my hand today.
Stained up some WDW Tin Roof linen and picked out some muted overdyeds.
This is my Cottage Charm design, but not sure how I'll finish it.

Hope you're have a creative day too!

Smokin' Needles

Lots of finishing going on these days up in the sewing studio.
I am working like crazy to get as many pieces finished for the table at Merchant Mall
for our Prim Stitchers Retreat in Williamsburg VA next month.  
I'm sharing a table with Teresa from Teresa's Primitive Treasures.

A local cross stitch shop, Valley Needleworks will also have a table along with many of my other friends.....Elizabeth Talledo from Dames of the Needle,  Lori from Notforgotten Farm, Kathy Barrick, Bonny Woomer from the Nebby Needle...and the list goes on.


I designed and stitched these five stars with the thought of making a pinkeep....but it turns out it really wanted to be a ditty bag......You may find it odd, but my pieces usually end up telling me what they want to be, even if that's not exactly what I had planned for them.......LOL
Still have some work to do on this....but it's coming along nicely, I think...

I am truly excited about this retreat and hope to see and meet many of you there.
The Prim Stitchers Society is such a wonderful, inspiring, supportive and caring facebook group....If you're so inclined, please ask to join.

 Have a great week and happy creating! ~Nan

Looky Looky!

If you didn't know.....I belong to a wonderful stitching group on Facebook called "The Prim Stitchers Society".  I will be attending their first ever retreat at the end of next month in Williamsburg VA., along with many of my fellow designers and stitching friends.
There will be a Merchant Mall open to the public, on May 1st and 2nd from 12:30 to 5:30, in case you are interested in attending and stopping in to say "Hello:)"
I am hoping to have a few new released charts for sale, along with some of my handmade pieces and maybe even a kit.

Here is the beautiful flyer our Prim Stitcher Sis, Ridgely had made up for the event!

I am so excited to meet everyone and to join so many of my fellow stitchers, to do what we all love most....stitch, shop, eat and hang with friends.  Hope you can stop by to see all the goodies for sale and chat with us.
Smiles, ~Nan

Last Day to Hop!

Can you believe it's the last day for the Buttermilk Basin Hop?
This has been lots of fun.  As my first time to participate in the Hop, you have all made me feel very welcome.  Thank you for the many emails and comments on my Tulip Hop Needlebook.  I have already seen some of you stitching this and can't wait to see your take on the finish.  I'd love to see photos of your creations!


Wrapping up the Hop is artist, Sheri from Calico Moon.  She has a wonderful project AND recipe you just won't want to miss.  Please follow this link to visit her.

Happy Weekend!
Smiles, ~Nan
