Saturday Morning at Galleria

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the window displays at Galleria!

Some of the doors are decorated too.

We won’t be shopping today.  We are taking a class with Sue Hillis called “A Study in Red”.  It’s a red band sampler on a spool with a biscornu on top.

Will be back later!

St. Charles - Galleria

Yes, you guessed right. I’m at Needlework Galleria. What a fun place to be!

Our day started out with a class from Beth Seal of Summer House Stitche Workes. It’s a cute pumpkin themed pocket. I made good progress for just a couple of hours of stitching.

We spent the afternoon at an antique mall. Found a couple of things that had to come home with me.

Back at Galleria, the early bird shopping began at 6:00pm. Our first stop was Shakespeare’s Peddler. Got up close and personal with Ham Rock. The place to be tonight was in Beth Twist’s room - Heartstring Samplery! I made a few purchases which I’ll have to share on another post.

Tomorrow will be another day!

Road Trip!

It’s been awhile! The adventures of the Alphabet Stitcher and her Partner in Crime are back. They didn’t let us go out into the world alone this time though; we have supervision this trip.

We traveled all day yesterday. Our first and only stop was a new shop to me, my PIC had already been to this one. We stopped at Village Needlework in Marion, IA.  Sadly, they are going out of business. It was and still is a lovely shop with supplies for cross stitch, tatting, knitting and crochet and canvas.  We made a few purchases.

Arrived at our destination last night.  Here’s a clue on where we are:

Hope to have more posts for you throughout the weekend.
