Confusion, Correction, Completion and Coming Soon!

Confusion:  I thank those of you who emailed me with your confusion!  Old Town Sampler:  There has been some confusion about where the smyrna cross stitches are . . . and smyrna was misspelled.  There is actually only one.  It is the doorknob.  I have specifically stated where that stitch is on the more recent patterns.  Sorry about the confusion!

Correction:  Found this one myself on a recent print job.  Amazing Grace:  On the lower border there is an extra cross stitch between two of the smyrnas.  I actually stitched this mistake on the model.  Is it noticeable?  I don't really think so but, if it bothers you, there are several things you can do.  I have corrected this on the recent patterns that have gone out.  I eliminated the extra stitch and moved the central design over one stitch.  If you've already started the design you could always bring the tail of the 'g' in one stitch.  OR you can just stitch it as it's printed and pretend to be Amish . . . they always include one mistake in their work because no one is perfect except God . . . I love this!

Completion:  I had Blackbird Designs' "Where My Heart Blooms" framed . . . love it!
I've also been involved with a quilt our EGA has designed and is making for the (almost complete) Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Bristol, TN/VA.  We're on the home stretch and once it's completed and unveiled at the museum I'll show you what it looks like . . . it's turning out great!  In addition to one of the letters I stitched that you may remember I posted, I just finished this bit.  It is part of one of the boarders of the quilt.  It's the song:  "Will The Circle Be Unbroken".  This has been a wonderful collaboration of so many of our members!!!

Coming Soon:  I'm almost finished with a new design called "Oh My Stars".  It's been a fun stitch and I'm pleased with the way it's turning out . . . hope you like it!  I thank my EGA friend, Mindy, for mentioning the color Teal when I said I was adding a blue.  The blue I initially picked didn't look right . . . I'm liking the teal though!

 Spring is actually popping out all over here in Eastern Tennessee!  Forsythia is in bloom, flowering trees are out, daffodils everywhere!  I should get off the computer though as there is quite the thunder storm going on!!!

Stitch on my friends!
