And since you're all such kind and good people, here is another market sneak peek. It's "Father Sail Home." This is finished in an Olde Colonial Pencil Box I bought at the last market, because I thought it was so cool. It's stitched in Sampler Threads, and shops can pick up this limited edition set at market. But there is a conversion to their regular line and to DMC, too. I was thinking...pencils...school...little girl. And then I just got to daydreaming about a little girl named Emeline whose father had just sailed off for adventure (or work.) Kids still miss their moms and dads when they have to travel, and it's always so nice when the whole family is together again. Hope you like it. Thanks (again) to my good friend Kathy for stitching this for us.
I accomplished quite a bit this weekend. I finished my Jenny Bean 2010 Christmas ornament, and I also designed and have almost finished stitching a sampler round pincushion that will be released as a limited edition kit at market (it'll come in a tin with the limited edition threads and finishing instructions.) I'm still hacking away at market things. This week will see the printing of many a graph.
