My last photo of the day.... it’s evening and the light is fading fast. I thought you might like something peaceful and quiet.
   This time of the year Barb and I get ready for the needlework market in Nashville.  We release new patterns and have an opportunity to meet with shop owners and other designers. (If you are coming to market, our room number is 613. We stay in the same room every year....easier for us to remember.)
   At market we will be releasing a cross-stitch book and two new patterns in the “Remember Me” series. The titles for the two new patterns are “I Thee Wed” and  “Mildred’s Garden House.”
  The book is titled Thank You Sarah Tobias and includes cross stitch patterns and the original antique sampler by Sarah Tobias. We recruited our friends to design samplers influenced by the motifs on Sarah’s sampler. We hope these designs will encourage you to design a sampler of your own or to stitch one of the patterns provided!
   Look for these titles in your local cross stitch shop in the second week of Feb.
   Have you started some of the applique heart blocks? The previous update provided a pattern for a small quilt. Don’t forget to send pictures next month!
