Friends who had visited the show on it's first day, had told me that I would find good booths for wool stuff. They were so right. After Primitive Gatherings, I found Sew*Cherished.
here you will find the product. It allows beginners to advanced stitchers the perfect way to make perfect stitches! Just like the ones Dawn stitched in this sampler below......
And the third booth full of wooly goodies was ............ Shades*of*the*Past. And in the photo below, that's owner Darci on the right and her daughter, Lacey, on the left.
Why yes, I did! In fact, here are the goodies that I brought home from the show.............
There are seven lovely balls of Valdani thread from Shades*of*the*Past, and from Primitive*Gatherings*Quilt*Shop there is a red bundle and a green bundle of wools that are perfect for some penny rug projects. While I didn't buy anything at Sew*Cherished, I am thinking I may order her ornament*pattern. They were lovely and would make really special gifts. Yes, I was "sew" happy to have "mission accomplished" and to have found lots of wool, threads and other wooly stuff. I came home smiling........really big.
I realize that as hot as it is here in the midwest and much of the U.S. that working with wool might be the last thing on your mind but summer is short here in Minnesota. In just two short months, the crisp air of fall will arrive on our doorsteps and working with wool will be quite welcome! Just the thought of those cool fall breezes is enough to get me through this week of heat. Well, that and the air-conditioning. :-)Have a good Monday!
