Week 18 - waves and a debut

Hope everyone had a great week.  This is what I was up to

Monday I did work on an Ink Circles for Ink Circles Monday
Ink Circles - Oscar's Corsage
Solo fabric from Fabric by Rolanda

Next up, I pulled out Year in Chalk for June
I got this one finished on Friday night
Year in Chalk - May
Hands on Design
GAST Chalk, Weeks Cognac, Steph's 32ct linen in Slate
After I finished up the YIC, I pulled out my blackwork SAL, since I was getting late.
I was actually able to make some good progress and got it done on Saturday morning.
Peppermint Purple - Blackwork Tangram
Weeks 1and 2
DMC, 32ct white lugana
Speaking of Saturday, I attended the Knowledge and Needles Nashville open house.  This was extra special as my friend Lianne launched her new design company - 1897 Schoolhouse Samplers.  Please check her out on Instagram and Facebook.  Here are some pics from the day.

The booklet is really great quality

The model stitch of "Above the Sky Mary Ann Raywood 1818"

Lianne had a great little table set up for her sampler.

I also got a belated birthday card and GC from my friend Dani, and also a birthday card from my friend Christin.  Christin had already gifted me with my fabric I used for the Long Dog Mystery.  Thanks again ladies! 

On Saturday, as well with some other haul, I was able to grab a skein of thread to finish up valentina.  I was happy to put the final stitch in Saturday night!

Ink Circles - Valentiana
32ct white lugana, weeks Islamorada

So all in all a VERY productive week!
Lets hope this week is even half so :)

Everything looks amazing! I especially love your Tangram SAL! I have only gotten as far as collecting the parts right now to stitch one day...

What a great week with your stitching and your new celebrity friend! Well done to her for launching her design company with such a lovely sampler.

By the way, both links go to Instagram, not to Facebook!
