Nan Lewis and Threadwork Primitives
(here's a hint: picture of the ornie tree at my LNS)
Last Saturday, my LNS, Dyeing to Stitch had a 7th Birthday Bash! Here are the owners, Pat Ryan and Ann Robbins, who are also the owners of R&R Reproductions.
Had to show the snacks! Genuine Whoopie Pies made by Ann! Pumpkin and Red Velvet! Plus vanilla and chocolate cupcakes! Yummy!
And Nan Lewis, of Threadwork Primitives, came down from Philadelphia, PA to help Ann and Pat celebrate. She brought additional shop models that DTS didn't have, plus she was available to sign charts and chat with customers and fans. That's her husband, Bill, in the back chair.
Also, Ivonne Brown, (of The Crackling Crows) came to visit. She is a talented artist also, creating lots of banners I love!
I finished a Fall piece just in time--Falling Leaves Sampler by --drum roll please--Threadwork Primitives! My son (Jon's Woodworks) made the primitive wood plaque according to the chart directions, and will be making more. It turned out so nice! I hung it up on my wall as soon as I got home. I got it signed by Nan on the back!
AND--here's the exciting part for YOU! I don't usually stitch a chart a second time... And I won't be stitching this one again, cause I love my finish, so... I had Nan sign the chart, and I am giving it away to one of my faithful followers! I will be drawing a name this coming Saturday, November 17th, via the random number generator. All you need to do is comment on this post that you WILL stitch this chart!
Well, have to get some stitching done tonite! I know I had more to post about, but I have run out of steam...Maybe tomorrow...no, going out to dinner. Maybe Thursday!
