This is the newest book from Barb and Alma of Blackbird Designs. It contains some wonderful information about 24 samplers from the Spencer Museum of Art. It also has 11 projects inspired by the samplers.
If you are lucky enough to live near Boston Ma you need go to the Museum of Fine Art, they have been running a wonderful exhibit of 'Embroideries of Colonial Boston'. The 3rd and final part, Domestic Embroideries, starts September 17th. If the first two parts are anything to go by it should be a wonderful show. I must say the new Art of the Americas wing is wonderful and well worth a visit.
And who doesn't wait every year for their Just Cross Stitch ornament issue. It is full of great ornaments to stitch.
One of my favorites is Inspirations magazine. I go through each issue at least a dozen times just dreaming about all the amazing projects to stitch.
Well there you have just a few of the new things out in the stitching world. Oh.... if I only had more time to stitch all those wonderful projects. Sometimes I think I spend more time planning and dreaming than actual stitching...but you know what.... it is all good.
Thanks for stopping by.
