I got on the plane this morning heading to Houston and then we were to told that the plane had computer issues. Thankfully they have allowed us to get off the plane and wait in the terminal. I have my computer, my Kindle and needlepoint, so I have plenty to keep me busy.
I figured I would post a little more about Market and maybe some more pictures of the store.
Pure Palette from Dreamhouse Ventures is coming out with a new thread and I couldn't resist. It is a single ply Merino wool in about 90 something colors. I think the Composite Stitch possibilities with Baroque Silk and Soy Luster will be fun to play with. 1 ply on 18 works with a coverage that is not heavy. 2 ply on 18 goes through the canvas fine but is a little rough in look. If you are covering white with a dark color I think it would really do the trick. 2 ply on 13ct. works great.
YLI has come out with Hand Painted Shimmer Ribbon and it is beautiful. I can't wait for that to come in.
As promised I am bringing in The Planet Earth single strand and stranded threads. They will be up when we get into the new store hopefully. They should be delivering them in the next couple of weeks.
Unfortunately my adapter to load pictures from my camera is in my checked luggage so I can't load any of the pictures I took yesterday.
I took a great class from Robin King while I was at Market. She is very creative with the stitches she uses. We did Pattern Couching with beads which was a very interesting effect for the pumpkin on the canvas. Pictures later. In January Robin will be teaching a class with a canvas from Zecca. Can't wait to see that. Zecca is the company that did the adorable Family of Owls that I posted yesterday.
The rest of the summer is just going to be blowing and going. We do plan on closing as soon as we get out Certificate of Occupancy to move. As soon as that happens I will let every one know. Kelly is getting to town on July 14th for her 2 classes. Tony gets into town at the end of the July for his 2 Enhancement classes and Safari Teapot. Then returns in mid September for 2 classes of African Batik.
The battery on my computer is starting to go down so I am signing off.
Everyone have a great day.
