DAY 1, ST. CHARLES MARKET

CONTINUING WITH MORE PICS OF BEAUTIFUL PIECES AT DAY 1 OF THE ST. CHARLES MARKET.  WISH YOU ALL COULD HAVE BEEN HERE, BECAUSE AS NICE AS THE PICTURES ARE ON THE CHARTS, NOTHING COMPARES TO SEEING THE CHART AND MODEL IN PERSON.  SO HERE GOES.....Chart and designer

Cherished Stitches brings us All In a Night's Work and Halloween Chronicles, both kits.  The green fabric in the latter is just so awesome combined with the stitched portion.






Harvest Keeper is from Plum Street Samplars and so is the sampler  Gathering Honey.




T.A. Smith Designs is a new designer with some very nice work.  Shown are Haunted and Noel.  Both were out of stock by the time we got to see them but they are ordered and will be in shortly.


These are the four new colors from Weeks Dye Works.  Flat Fish, Porpoise, Candy Apple and Jay Bird.



Hands on Design is a new designer to the shoppe.  Shown are her Indigo Star, which I just love,  and Everyday Sampler, shown stitched 2 ways.  I plan on doing the long narrow one.  Several other charts from her will be coming home with me...Wreath House , Twice Blessed and Pomegranate Pocket & Pin.

 
 
The Nebby Needle gives A Handful of Love.  I just love the pillow with the hand and will probably have to stitch it.
 
 
Retromantic Fripperies provide stitching aids with a very unique look.  Shown are  Mr. Moon and Raven.  Use them as a floss palette or even just a fob.  We also have several other designs from them.  I just liked the Halloween ones.






NeedleWorkPress presents Glad Tidings, a cute standup, Ellen Harrison 1889 and Harmony.  This last one is stitched with Gentle Art wool threads, but you could easily stitch it with their cotton overdyed floss.


 




Homespun Elegance presents Hospitality of Christmas and Witch Inn.  I just deleted the Halloween pic in error so I guess you'll have to stop in to check it out.




There are many more charts coming home with me as we start on our way home Monday.  We are taking a side trip up to Wisconsin on Sunday and will be starting home some time Monday afternoon.  We will finish shopping Sunday morning, check out of the hotel by noon and finish shopping if needed and then drive north.  Check out a couple of country shops and quilt shoppes on Monday, then start for home.  Will post more pics sometime Sunday, so stay tuned.  See you next week!

Oh, by the way for those of you signed up for the October retreat, Stitching in the Park, I've  got some surprises for you!  Good night.
