    Karin’s Stitching Room

    Oh how I wish you all could see this room in person! It's so lovely and serene and feminine, and I enjoyed every moment in there, just gazing at the softness of it all. Since the Inspired Summer Seminar was held very close to where Karin lives, Karin attended the workshop, as well as invited me to stay in her gorgeous home while I was there.

    Everywhere I looked, there were lovely stitched creations set about, each one quietly tempting me to pick it up. (But as every good stitcher knows, one does not simply man-handle another's lovely stitched creations!)

    I've had this Jeanette Douglas design kitted up for ages, and now I wonder why I never found the time to stitch it…

    This design was so delightful to me! But Karin couldn't think of the name of it at the time (perhaps all of my oohing and aahing was ringing in her ears, causing her to have a mental block); the lilac and black of the design was just so striking…

    I loved the wall unit in the room, laden with so much stitchery-fabricy goodness…

    (Are those drawers in the background not giving you palpitations? I need the smelling salts.)

    Karin, when I left your home, I wanted to come home and literally stitch my guts out. I love you for that. 🙂

    P.S. The samplers throughout the rest of her home are outstanding as well.. simply marvelous! But like this stitching room's contents, they are all off to a new home in New York, where Karin will soon be moving to.

    P.P.S. Where there is stitching, there is home.
