Warning...Lots of Eye Candy!

Good Morning!

The Midwest is gearing up for what is supposed to be a large winter storm.  I myself am hoping that it's all hype.  But just in case I told Dan to pick up some extra milk at the store tonight on his way home.  I have to have my glass of milk every morning and with my luck I would run out on Thursday when the storm is due to hit.  Otherwise, I'm not going to get too frenzied about the whole thing although the weather guy on TV is already foaming at the mouth over the whole thing.  Really Bill?  It's snow.  We've had snow before.  We've had large snow storms before.  I think we can handle it without all the hype.  Take up cross stitch, it'll calm you down some!

Now that I have that off my chest, I will leave you with pictures of this years Needleart Exhibit at the shop.  They are in no particular order since I am running out of time this morning and I won't comment on any of it for the same reason except to say I hope you enjoy viewing these lovely pieces by our customer's.  I had to beg, plead and threaten to get people to participate this year so we aren't sure we will be doing it next year.
Such a shame as many people love to come in to see them.  So if you find yourself in the Omaha area in the next week or two, stop by and vote for your favorites!  Click on the pictures to view larger!

I tried to get closeups of them all before my battery died but it didn't happen.  Sorry to those that have a piece that did not get a good close up.

Have a great day all!

Take care till next time!

Question. Can you find out who designed the pattern for the people in the tub naked? Too funny? That would be so cute in my bathroom!

I can't believe you had to pester people! Every item is so beautiful you think people would be happy to show hem off.

Thanks for sharing -- it really is a wonderful display.

Here's to the storm being just bad enough to let you stitch in peace... without loosing power :)
