  1. Great purchases. I'm excited about seeing what Blackbird Designs is coming out with at market.

  2. I am excited about The Scarlet House patterns; I have already put my name in for a couple of them at my LNS. Also looking forward to WTNT; I also like Heartstring Samplery and Summer House Stitchworks. So, so many to pick from!! Aren't we lucky? I also do my threads on drops like you do; no more bobbins for me. It makes it so easy to just pull a thread out; love it. Your stitching is so beautiful, and I always love seeing your knitting too; so gorgeous! Happy stitching.

  3. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the Summer House Stitchworks series for 2019. I’ll actually be at market helping Theresa (KittenStitcher) in her booth again this year, so I look forward to seeing everyone in the industry. It is a wonderful group of people and so inspiring to see all the models in person. Thanks also for sharing your tip for putting your Weeks Dye Works and DMC flosses on thread drops. Genius idea!
