BFF talked me into ordering some Nashville market stuff. I was going to wait, really I was. But some of the offerings are limited editions and are going fast. So I made a list of stuff I would like, then I narrowed it down. I crossed off the frivolous things. There were nine things left on the list. So I ordered them.
I got an email from Silver Needle. They wanted to know if I wanted the ladybug or the butterfly tiny needlebook from Just Nan. I didn't even know there were two to choose from. I chose the butterfly. That means they are putting together my order. Yeah!
You know, if I had more time I would try things out and goof around a lot more. After doing the pre-stitching for Spring Fling I was thinking of other designs that could go on that needlebook. I like those clock (clox?) designs that I have seen on a few samplers. So I went looking for some clock designs. A few years ago, Needleprint had some little Christmas stocking ornaments with clock or clox designs. Did I have them? I went looking but couldn't find anything. They are still on Needleprint's site even though the lady has retired. So I tried ordering them. The order went through and I got them. So I am trying the needlebook again with one of the little stocking designs.
Then I thought I would try doing a larger design over one. (Am I crazy?) So far:
It goes so much slower over one. I found a sampler from Stickideen von der Wiehenburg (that's a mouthful) called "Patricia" that has some of the clox motifs. They are the long skinny designs. I like the ones with crowns on top.
Maybe I can put some of them on the bag we will be making.
I got a whole bunch of pieces backstitched on the Queen's Crown.
I am working on the second piece of fabric and it is going more easily as it is on silk instead of cotton. I hope to finish these pieces today.
I want to finish up the back of the baby quilt too. I better get busy!
