Almost There...

Brynwood Needleworks - Told In A Garden "Voice of the Shepherd"
 
Today, we'll be back in Wisconsin - the land of rolling hills, Holsteins and beautiful barns. Once again, Handsome will have brought us across 1500 beautiful miles of America.

I started stitching this piece before I owned Stitches - my needlework shop in Wisconsin - and I eventually mounted it, unfinished, onto these very same scroll rods to advertise that I had them (scroll frame sets, and the charts for this design) available to purchase in my shop. That would have been sometime around 1989 or 1990.

I think it's time I finish what I started. Don't you? As soon as we return to Fond du Lac, it will be my first stitching priority. While I'm in Wisconsin, I'll be sharing other projects with you that I brought along for the trip.

Tomorrow will be a day for special announcements, so you'll want to come back so you don't miss a single, juicy, morsel! See you then.

I remember visiting your shop years ago.
That and the quilt shop.
