Can I just tell you that it is so hard to make any decisions when surrounded by so much loveliness!
I would have loved to have spent the day there leisurely perusing, but I knew that my family was waiting for me for a late lunch...
These Attic bags were the first thing to jump in my hand. I used the larger bag this weekend for a road trip and it was just perfect for stitching in the car. The lid lifts up and everything is still safely contained in case of a sharp turn or quick stop.
The Attic has many local designers and so of course a design or two from them was a perfect souvenir! I so love bleeding hearts and redware! Perfect!
A few other patterns that I fell in love with. The Autumn Acorn pattern came with the wooden acorn.
These notecards are of gorgeous antique samplers with patterns on the back! LOVE!
One of Blackbird Designs newest patterns. I love the cover design, but it was the bonus pattern that took my breath away:
Sweetheart Pincushion! The darker red fabric was not the color called for in the pattern. Instead I chose Weeks Aztec Red Gingham - the gingham is very faint, but added an additional dimension. The mauve fabric is so unique I had to purchase it. I'll find something to stitch on it I'm sure. It is Dames of the Needle's "Cherry Pit Brown".
And a few miscellaneous notions:
The wooden Bee Skep needlebook kit is by Fern Ridge Collections,
Needlework Press glass cleaning cloth
Beautiful bone rings from Italy
and handy little wooden ruler embossed with The Attic.
Thanks so much for joining me on my trip and letting me share.
