Name tag and trip to Scarlet Letter
I finished my name tag for the Lake Michigan Sampler Guild last night. The threads are a combination of Olde Willow linen, Vicki Clayton silk, and Crescent Colors cotton floss. I adapted a Guild Anniversary Pincushion design for the name tag. Today, I went to the open house at The Scarlet Letter near Sullivan, Wisconsin. It was a nice day for a drive despite all of the dire weather forecasts and I was able to admire samplers and hooked rugs and shop for as long as I wanted. I came home with two sampler kits and a chart and copies of Amy Mitten's Autopsy of the Montenegrin Stitch and the new book about Sweet Bags by Jacqui Carey. I also had an opportunity to admire the multicolored alpacas before I left.
