The verse ".....is my name and with my needle I wrought the same" was the inspiration for my company name.
I hope you'll enjoy stitching my designs.

Long Time No See...
We returned home Sunday evening from a wonderful vacation cruising on the Rhine and Moselle rivers! I haven't done much stitching since returning home because I've been very busy catching up on things.
I've just finished assembling the kits (A Needleworker's Sampler Huswif and A Lady's Worke Box) for my September classes with theLake Michigan Sampler Guild in Chicago. I'm really looking forward to being back with members of this guild. I last taught for them eight years ago when they celebrated their seventh anniversary. I made a couple of extra kits, so there is one opening left for A Needleworker's Sampler Huswif and several for A Lady's Worke Box.
The first weekend in October I'll be returning to teach for House of Stitches in LaPorte, Indiana. (If you haven't visited House of Stitches before, you are in for a very big treat---the shop is full of wonderful stitching delights.) I'll soon begin assembling the kits for the two House of Stitches classes, Fruit of the Vine Sampler Huswif and Long May She Wave. You can read about the classes at http://www.houseofstitches.com/events.html or contact Linda. If you're interested, sign up with Linda within the next couple of days.
In late October I'll be traveling to Wichita, Kansas to teach A Needleworker's Sampler Huswif and A Lady's Worke Box for the local EGA guild.You can get info about these classes from Debbie.

I decided to take my new reproduction sampler to work on while we cruised, but I didn't make much progress. Here are two photos of me working on it, first on the plane and then waiting in the Paris airport for our connection. Did you notice how I can clip my little magnifier on to almost anything? You can also get a glimpse of the sampler "in progress".
And here is a glimpse of the wonderful scenery we saw while on our river cruise. I have lots more photos to share with you in the coming weeks. Many will be needlework-related.
