Tribute to Summer

Happy Hump Day!!!

I have another finish



Tribute to Summer by Stacy Nash Primitives
Stitched on 30ct cocoa linen with GA threads
My favorite, for once, was the border, ha
It was such a joy to stitch, I love the colors

Then I and Anna went to the Inspired Needle stitch-in. We stopped at the Vera Bradley outlet in a mall on the way there.
Here is my grand model showing it off



The Folkloric grand tote




I also bought the Boysenberry address book she's holding up

My favorite Vera design is Canyon and one hope to own something in that pattern
The outlet store I go to only carries discontinued patterns, so they don't have the Canyon design there :(

What's yours???

I forgot to snap a pic of my purchase from the Inspired Needle
I bought a couple patriotic designs, a Word play by Brenda Gervais with enough 35ct linen to do four of them

I turned off the word verification (that annoying step to leave a comment) and will see how many spam I get, hopefully not as many as I was getting

Thanks for stopping by my little part of the woods

Happy stitching!!!!

I so love this design! Such a gorgeous finish!!! Love your new VB too. My favorite pattern of VB changes constantly. lol! I do love Folkloric though.

Deb said...

Such a sweet finish. Soft soft and pretty colors. I love, love Vera Bradley and my SIL picks things up for me from the outlet store in Virginia. Which reminds me I need to send her my new order. I don't have a favorite really - well, maybe the black and pink design that came out a couple years ago for Breast Cancer. But honestly I love just about everyone of them.

Congratulations on the awesome finish. Although I regret that now I have to go add that pattern to my list of things I want to do. Dang it!

Annie said...

Very pretty finish.
I've never been to a VB outlet store. That must be a real treat. they used to have a navy blue design that wasn't as wild as some. I loved that one. I'm on the conservative side with this things.

Diana said...

I go to the Vera Bradley outlet, too. Love it! You can register your birthday and you get a $20 coupon to use during your birthday month. I got one in January.

Wonderful Stacy Nash finish! Folkloric is one of my favorite colors....

Patti said...

Lovely and impressive finish! I love that design, but have been intimidated by its size :) I was just at the Inspired Needle for the very first time on Saturday! Oh boy! Was I inspired! I loved it and will definitely be going back! Didn't realize there was Vera Bradley outlet near by or I would have visited that as well ;)
Blessings, Patti

I love that Stacy Nash piece! It's on my list to pick up at Nashville this weekend. My boss is a HUGE Vera Bradley fan. We have a women's consignment store just 3 doors down from the shop and the owner always calls the boss when she gets a Vera Bradley bag in.

Julie said...

Perfectly beautiful finish, you are right the border is so pretty.

Laura said...

Wowza!!! Your needles are in fire!!! What a glorious finish! Love, love, love your Vera purchases!!!

I adore your finish, the colours and design are so beautiful. I think that this is another one to add to my to stitch list.

I recently followed Laurie's advice and changed my settings so that only google accounts could comment and it stopped all the spam without the need for word verification.

It's so nice to see something summery for a change. I love your finish!
It's so pretty and delicate.
Pretty bag too. The model did a fabulous job!
