One thing I found very exciting was that you could find charts that are very hard to get. Notice the Halloween Game Board and the Prairie Moon charts. The shop owner( Cross Stitch Peddler) said that Prairie Moon is no longer in business. ( For anyone interested she had the chart for "Thine is the Trick or Treat"). All the charts were appropriately priced not as though they were hard to get.
I have always felt so sad about what happened to the designer, Lisa, at the Primitive Needle. I love her charts and felt so lucky to get this one. That country sampler design was copyrighted in the 80's. I will be choosing my own color threads for that one but the design is delightful!
I think that is a fairly old BBD chart too.
I plan to stitch this one soon. As I have 2 Revolutionary War Patriots, I am thinking of substituting one of the names on the chart for my own ancestors. I bought all the floss and linen to do this one too. I am using the called for floss and a light tan linen by Lakeside Linen.
Sorry for the blue cast to the photos. I'm not sure why it is there. Well, I hope you all have a wonderful week-end and thanks so much for joining me today!!!!
