Well, after a nice vacation, I came back and found out that there are a ton of new things that are about to be released. The designers have been getting ready for the fall needlecraft market in Baltimore this weekend and are going to show their new designs. I will post some of the things that I know will be available shortly after the show. Let the shop know if there is something you are interested in and one of the girls will be glad to let you know when it arrives.

This design is worked entirely with silk and overdyed silk threads on a beautiful piece of hand dyed 32 ct. linen.
