Nashville Market

What a weekend at the Nashville Needlework Market!
I was lucky to get to go to market with Little by Little to help in the booth, I failed in the help part, but managed to do the scouting for Cynthia and Candi who did all the work.
I have had some emails about Cynthia's new patterns, so lets start with a few pictures of her booth.

 Brown Dog Sampler
New Piddlings

 Old piddlings looking great together in wooden trencher

Three Blind Mice

Now my goal was to take lots of great pictures of all the wonderful booths with the lovely samplers and I managed to get two done.  I'm sorry that I failed you, but by Sunday when I was going to do this I was in a spending stupor.  Have you ever suffered from this?  
Well Here is the one other booth
La D Da 

 And Ms La D Da herself!
I did get this one other lone picture of a lovely little pin box from Needlemade Designs.
This was one of my favorites from market I loved the finishing on it and knew that I had to have it.  Can you guess what is on the other side of the mouse scissor fob?

Now I could go on and on about all of the lovely designs that were there but I will just list a few of my favorites!
Stacy Nash - Grace Bridges
Plum Street Samplers - My Brothers Keeper
Nikys Creations - Needle Keeper
Scarlett House - Mary Roe 1808
Needlework Press - Posies From the Cottage
Summer House - Nine Shaft Sampler (older pattern but a must have)
Shakespeare Peddler - Jane Patterson
I know that you will have already picked your own favorites I would love to hear what they are. I know that I will see them on all the blogs already stitched in a few days, you all amaze me with the shear speed of your needles.

So I mentioned that I would have a give away from market so.... with out further adieu

Sounds like market was as exciting as always. I really like the alone in the garden piece and also love that little kitten pinkeep. Don't like the mouse so much as it brings back bad memories of the mouse I just finally got rid of in the basement. I would like it only if there is a decon logo on the back of it. Maybe that is how I could make mine with a cirlce and an X thru the mouse motif.
Anyway, I would so excited to have a chance in your market giveaway.
