A Wonderful Day at the Market

Today was the day that my local LNS displays all the new goodies she returned with from the Nashville Market. As you can tell, I was in 7th heaven and it was very hard to get my feet back on the ground. I limited myself to just my favorite designers so I could keep the expense under a manageable figure....I'm not sure my DH would agree. LOL

Dinky Dyes new scissor case which comes with the silks and the matching scissors. Very cute!!! I love doing the Sweetheart Trees designs on the checked Graziano linen and this one looks very sweet. Shepherd's Bush had a freebie when you purchased the silver charm that went with it. This one is a darling sheep atop a hill with a tulip charm.

These are two of the designs I have awaited impatiently for. I am dieing to start the Lighthouse biscornu from Rosewood Manor and the With My Needle Huswife from Ellen Chester is just beautiful. I love stitching her designs.

Prairie Moon has come out with Black and Red Sampler II and since I had number I it was a no brainer that I had to have it. LOL And then there is La-D-Da. I absolutely love all of her designs and love stitching them.

Just Nan had some wonderful items this time but I limited myself to just these two. The vintage winder I have plans for so stay tuned to see what I do with that and the Needle Tweet is for my daughter, Jenn.

Ever since I stitched the Jenny Bean pinkeep, I have fallen in love with these designs. I broke down and purchased the fiber pack for this one....saves on time pulling threads don't ya know.

And last but not least....Blackbird Designs. I truly think they outdid themselves this market and there was nothing that didn't make it into my bag. The Manor book has some of the most beautiful pincushions they have ever produced and my fingers are itching to start them.
So let me know what you think about my purchases and what you think I should start first. I always have a very hard time with that one.
As always,
