Market Day!

This morning, I headed over to my LNS to peruse the selections from the recent Nashville Market.  I shopped with Mom and Terri along with lots of other regular Attic customers 🙂

I found a couple things that had to come home with me.

  • La-D-Da Wicked Witch
  • Prairie Moon The House that Jack Built
  • Prairie Moon no…Mine is the Trick and the Treat


  • Prairie Moon Skeleton Fob (how cool is that?!?)
  • Colorscapes Dubloon and floss for The House that Jack Built

And a couple more things….

  • Black Branch Needlework – Ann Lockhart (the model got me on this one)
  • Lady K Needlearts  French Elegance
  • Ink Circles Rosetta
  • Plum Street Samplers Brother’s Keeper


  • Jenny Bean’s Gentle Spring Sampler
  • Ink Circles Attractive Opposites

And finally….

Red Hots Scissors from Kelmscott

The floss is Gloriana’s Peacock. I’m considering it as the palette for Tony Minieri’s Stars for the New Millennium. A close up:

And finally… one more piece jumped into the bag thanks to Mom:

She knows me so well.

    Peacock, huh? That’s about as colorful as Calypso is!

  2. I think Peacock could make a nice Stars color way. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  3. Nice stash haul! Love the last Prairie Moon design. And the new Florimell’s are delicious; you picked a beautiful color!

    Hi Annette,
    I’ve been reading your blog for some time and enjoy it very much. I keep saying I’d like to blog but never get there! Anyway, I love your choice for Tony M.’s Stars. A friend gave me her book last year and I’ve been agonizing over my color scheme since. Consequently it’s not started…hmmm, seeing a pattern here?! I have my canvas all ready. Actually, I had stopped in a shop in NJ for the canvas and Tony was there. He drew out the canvas for me!So I really should at least make a start. I’ll be watching your progress. I need the motivation. Thanks, Nancy

  5. I’d say that you cleaned up! You’ve got some wonderful stash!

  6. Peacock rocks. That is all (at least about the fiber).

    Wicked Witch and Brother’s Keeper are definitely on my wish list. Others will have to be seen in person on my next trip to the LNS -probably this week.

    You did well! Me likey it all!

  7. Great stash haul!! I love everything. That peacock thread would be beautiful to use.

  8. LOVE all your acquisitions! Omigosh, Peacock will be awesome with Stars. I really want to do that piece, but I feel like I should finish Les Rubans first. Which one will you start first??

  9. Lovely stash you got there. I’m drooling here ^.^ That Peacock silk is yummy.


  10. oo lovely new stash 😀
