Woodlawn this weekend!

I have only completed a bit more on Sugilite, so no pic, but I hope to rectify that this weekend!  Jill and I are heading to Alexandria, Virginia to take in the Woodlawn exhibit and a shopping trip to In Stitches.  We are staying overnight somewhere in the vicinity and making it our own little "retreat." 

This past week I purchased the Needlework 4 travel stand with the frame clamp for my needlepoint projects.  Can't wait to get it!  I will be able to take this along with me to retreats and such. 

I also received the most recent issue of Needlepoint Now and fell in love with the handpainted canvas on the cover by Maggie & Co.  I hemmed and hawed and finally purchased it from Amy's Golden Strand.  My first handpainted canvas!! 

Until next time...

I know that you are going to have a great time at Woodlawn! I have been wanting a stand for a while now.. I don't know if I could use one. I am use to sitting in a recliner and leaning to the left and stitching... lol Do you have to sit up straight? lol I may have a problem with that...
