    Market Again!

    When we last visited, I was in Lone Elm's gorgeous suite. And now we'll enter the Needlework Press room, where I was quite charmed by this Adam and Eve sampler: I love the two little girls under the tree that the stitcher added. She must have had quite the imagination! And as usual, Vicki and Megan had so many lovely…

    Finishing Troubles?

    So many of us love all the needlework accessories, or "smalls," out there, but we fall into one of three categories: 1. Would like to stitch it, but the finishing part is like a pox on me. 2.
