How to Update when Nothing is Happening


I could just leave it there.

But that would be mean.

No. Wait. I remember now.

Met some very nice ladies who own a shop called 3 Sisters Needlework in Woodbridge, VA. If it wasn't so far away, I would definitely join them for their stitch nights. Found MLI's Celtic Banner on sale. Now I had no intention of buying anything else she had designed. And just looking at this piece as packaged, I had been rejecting it for years. But then I saw it stitched and hanging at Woodlawn. And it became irrestible to me.

This is why we need actual real life stores. Just looking at the picture of a project is not enough for some of us. We need to see it see it.

You hit the nail on the head when you said that is why we need stores. No matter how hard a designer tries, the photo on the leaflet or in the package NEVER does the design justice. I have that one in my stash too! Will I ever get to it instead of stitching the stuff that I design? I hope so!
