I'm a little late in getting this posted, but here I am with just a few of the gorgeous things that were found at the needlework market in Nashville this year! I'm so sad for the shops and designers that couldn't make it because of the weather, but it was sure wonderful seeing those that could be there. Thank you so much to everyone who came out and supported the designers; each one of you is such a blessing.
This year I brought along my dear friend Katrina Devine to help me in my room. Katrina is exceptionally organized and kept everything running smoothly (which I was extremely grateful for), so I was able to get out and visit a few rooms and take a few photos! I didn't get to nearly enough of them, but here are the ones I did get to:
First stop was The Purple Thread... everywhere one looks, one finds a new treasure. Sharon is such a talented friend, and I love her displays...
And then there's my Canadian Sister Jeanette Douglas... Such exquisite details in her samplers!
And aren't these the sweetest tags? I love them! Jeanette has such a lovely way with color and elegance...
There are only two companies I trust with my coffee beans: Starbucks and R&R Reproductions. The ladies at R&R offered the most beautiful linens, and I came home with a venti-sized cut of Espresso. ;)
I loved this pillow by Threadwork Primitives, in R&R's room. It was such a pleasure meeting sweet Nan!
Shepherd's Bush never ceases to amaze me with their beautiful color palettes. Nobody designs like Tina and Teri, and they've been a favorite of mine since I learned my x's.
This one was a favorite of Katrina's and mine:
Samplers Not Forgotten had the most stunning samplers! Kim Nugent has reproduced several from her collection, and believe me when I tell you these samplers are huge! I was quite stunned to see them in person, but couldn't get a good photo because she was a good girl and had them all glassed in. ;)
One of my favorite stops is always at Chessie & Me's room. Her things are such a pleasure to look at, to photograph, and to stitch...
I absolutely love the saying on this: Pursue the pleasures of a peaceful life.
Beautiful as usual, Linda!
Stephanie and her gorgeous family (of Lone Elm Lane) were my next-door neighbors at the last market in St. Charles, but this time we were stationed a few doors down from them. Their room puts me in the best mood! It's like walking into a Country Living magazine, and the welcome is always so warm and friendly!
I have lots more to show you, but I think I'll end this post right here. I'll be back very soon with the rest!
It was truly a fabulous time at market... There were so many rooms I missed, either because of timing or crowds, but hopefully you'll be able to visit lots of blogs from those who attended to see what else was there.
See you soon!
