It has been a good stitching week here at Nanaland. With the cold dreary weather, it is nice to sit in my recliner, turn on some classical music and pick up my needlework.
Mary Engelbreit drew this cute picture. Sewing does bring rest to my soul especially in this last year of uncertainty and now in the change of seasons in Washington, DC. I keep hearing all this talk about self care during the pandemic. Well Cross Stitching is my Self Care.:)
I completed the stitching on my Valentine's Exchange in North Alabama Stitchers. Now to finish it and start collecting some goodies to include in my box to my stitchy friend.
My sampler in honor of my daughter and granddaughters got another line this week.
Valentine House by Waxing Moon is coming along. Soon it will be ready for the dough bowl.
One of my Two Red Houses is complete.
I was reading online that this years Needlework Market has been cancelled. This is the big event that usually takes place in March, was moved to May this year and is now cancelled. They are hoping to make it an online market. I was rather sad when I read the news as we all look forward to the new releases at Market Time. But we must do what is best and putting it online may be even more fun for the vendors and the stitchers. Word is the Market will be back in 2022.
If you have not checked out the Hoffman Friday releases, I noted that an old Prairie Schooler chart, Christmas Traditions, was re released. The old Prairie Schoolers are New Again to some younger stitchers who have come to love this designer.
Haul....this week I can report that I only received one chart, Lizzie Kate's Christmas ABCs. It was back ordered so I was not expecting it until February. It was a pleasant surprise to find it in my mail box this week.
Happy Stitching Dear Friends.
