Somebody was in the shop the other day and commented how much they miss my mostly daily musings on my blog… and I answered “all I’ve been doing lately is working at the shop!” No travel… no road trips… not much stitching… no trips with my BFF, blah, blah, blah. It would be quite boring just to share with you the goings on of everyday life in the shop. Anybody who thinks that all we do is sit around all day and stitch, well you are sadly mistaken!
But now I have a road trip ahead of me! This Thursday I to head to A Stitch in Time in San Marino, CA with 4 days of stitching bliss with The Embellishment Squad.
and this is the canvas that I will be working on by The Elizabeth Turner Collection. I need to find the proper magnet to fit with my canvas!
Embellishment Squad you say? you know Tony Minieri, Suzanne Howren, Meredith Willet and now Debbie Steihler makes the fourth. Beth Robertson could never ever be replaced, but I can’t think of a better person to join the group! Debbie, do you realize that you have very, very, very big shoes to fill?
Beth is on the right with her BFF Suzanne, cutting up and having fun. Today would be her birthday…and you are missed today as much if not more since the day that you left us way, way, way too soon. I hope that your life in that big stitching room in the heavens, where you never misplace your scissors, drop your needle, miss a stitch or have to do reverse stitching is keeping you out of mischief.
We will remember you fondly along with a tear or two during class and with a toast of your favorite 14 Hands Merlot.
AlleyCat loves empty egg containers…but not the one from a dozen and a half…it has to be this one! or Starbucks carry containers and often I find her sitting or catnapping like this. Silly girl, don’t you think?
I am taking my laptop with me, but not sure if I will have time to blog while I away…but I will have lots to share with you, trust me! Along with changing the windows at the shop, a new piece that I stitched that will be in the next Needlepoint Now and soon enough will be time for the Dallas Trade Show and ANG seminar in Myrtle Beach!
