I’m back from the Needlework Trade Show in Baltimore, Maryland. I exhibited my designs and had a fabulous time. My mom came and helped me in my “booth” and I’m always happy to spend time with her. The photo above shows my first Baltimore crabcake – it was so yummy I had another crabcake dinner Sunday night.
It’s so much fun to meet shopowners who purchase my designs and share stories with me of what has been done with some of my designs. I asked several people to send pictures and I’ll be sure to share them with you if/when they come! If you’re anywhere close to Baltimore, go visit The Stitching Post . I let Melinda take a bunch of my models home to display in her shop for a few weeks.
Here’s a couple of photos of what my “booth” looked like – the market is held in an Embassy Suites hotel and we use the front part of the room for our displays and sleep in the back.
And here’s a photo of me with my newest designs – I hate having my picture taken but my mom was with me and she made me (sound familiar to anyone?!)
Here are the new designs I released this past weekend. First up is Funky Hearts –
This is called “Lollipops” – I’m happy to say it sold out! The colors in this photo appear a little washed out – it’s actually a bit brighter.
This is the latest Color Delights – it’s called Plum.
I previewed the next two in the Color Delights series – Silver & Midnight. I wish you could see how “shimmery” the Silver is – this is one of my favorites in the Color Delights series. Silver will be released Sept 1st.
Midnight will be released Oct 1st.
I spent today “catching up” at home and am looking forward to opening my shop in the morning! I love being busy!
