A new shop display
Today I wanted to share a new display I have put up in the shop. Karlene from Katkins Designs is a local doll designer. She does not have a craft show to do now until February so she has loaned me some of her models for the shop. We have the patterns already so it is nice to have the dollies "in the flesh".







Speaking of dolls, I just finished "Florence". I am getting better at making dolls:)

I got a couple of my cross stitch finishes from this year back from the framer. Bren usually frames for me but he has been so busy I thought it would be quicker to have my other framer do them. When I picked these up I also dropped off Paradim Lost and The Token. They will be ready in a couple of weeks. The pics are not great due to the glass on them.

An Open Heart.


Seven Sailors (stitched for me by my friend Sandra)

And Indian Summer Reflections.

I received my square and signature square from Lizzie in the Fair & Square swap. I love it.



I also received a Biscornu from Janine. This is from a biscornu swap run by the Xsers Yahoo group here in Australia.




Bren and I met our friends Kylie and Frank down in the city last night for a lovely dinner at a Spanish restaurant called The Don Quixote. What a fabulous dinner and Kylie and I had way too much Sangria to drink. Needless to say Bren and Frank were the designated drivers for the night:)

    The dolls are gorgeous, the stitching is gorgeous. If I saw it right I also see some beautifull quilts displayed.

    All your framed pieces are so beautiful and I did love the display in the shop. Next time I visit, I must make sure that I have time to actually look around at all the beautiful work you have on display.

    I hope you have a happy new year and enjoy your holiday.

    Having many finished models are so important in a shop, and yours are top notch!!

    The dolls are gorgeous Kaz! I just wish I had more of an inclination to sew *sigh*. I love the lilypad quilt too!

    I WILL finish AOH heart this year....I will!

    AND I will visit you and Bren and the shop :)

    PS: Did you know that that Chatelaine piece was designed from when Martina came to my house in Sturbridge, Massachusetts for her first Stitching Bee to meet her fans in the USA? It was in October during a magnificient Fall...with a beautiful display of colorful foliage in our town center near the white bandstand! We had great fun! The hotel they group stayed in was beside a lake.

    What a glorious visual feast for the eyes! Your latest framed pieces are gorgeous! As are the dolls and the biscornu :) Just wanted to drop by and wish you all the best for the rest of the festive season (even though there's not much left now!), and hope 2008 is a wondrous year filled with peace, love and happiness. I look forward to getting to know you better now I'm in Sydney - will definitely have to have a stitching day :D Enjoy your days off, and look forward to dropping by in the New Year (I have a couple of new finishes for you!). {{hugs}}
