Another nice day here.
I started my Blackwork SAL project yesterday and here is the progress. I have to use a hoop to stitch it on because the January project next to it has beads and my q-snaps won't fit on it. I don't want to break the beads or the q-snap clamp. I really HATE using hoops. This month I am using House of Embroidery floss called Snaps. This is stitching up fast!
This weekend is a Needlearts show in Nashville where designers debut new desings. One of the web sites has a priview of the new designs and my wish list keeps growing. So far I want Beach & Beer mini blocks by Hinzeit, New Year's Eve Fairy by Mirbilia, Spring Fever needle tuffet kit from Cat's Whiskers, Thread Gatherer from Little House Needleworks, plus a new Coffee design from Lizzie Kate. That's only a FEW of the new designs, more will be out on Monday or Tuesday.
