Sample It San Diego

I got my hands some goodies tonight!  We had a wonderful dinner with Vicki De Angelis and Donna, and Elizabeth and Carol from Needlepoint Now.  So much fun!   But not as much fun as Sample It.  This is the only time that shop owners can purchase anything to take home with them from the show.  It is a mad feeding frenzy!  We got there an hour before it opened to wait in line.  My mother taught her daughter how to shop.

Let’s start with our favorites . . .magnets.

This little pirate is my favorite.  Trip thought this guy was hysterical.  I may just write a guide for him tonight.  Oh, who am I kidding?  It’s either more fun or bed.

These three carolers from so much fun are about the cutest thing I ever saw.  They are finished holding sheet music sitting on a bench.  They will post a pic of the finished piece on their Facebook page soon.

    Hello from the Northwest. I am so enjoying working on the Swirling Snowmen project with your great stitch guide. I have a question about the finishing you did in the acrylic tray. Was the tray a custom built piece or was it purchased from Cooper Oaks or some other vendor? Thank you
