Embracing Horses is a design by Laurel Burch. I just got back from a 3-day class at Nashville Needleworks with Laura Taylor.  This piece is a stretch for me because it is so large. I’m working on 22″ x 16″ bars! The stitch guide that Laura put together is great – also challenging which is one of the reasons I took the class. It’ll be fantastic. There are different stitches than you find in books. I enjoyed Laura as a teacher – she demonstrated everything, checked on our progress, and had interesting tidbits to share! All my classmates were such nice ladies & fantastic stitchers. A wonderful 3 days.

Bill & I had a blast doing the bourbon trail in Kentucy. And, in Nashville enjoyed Johnny Cash Museum and Willie Nelson Museum. Then, with Linda enjoyed the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Old Opry! Nashville is a fun city. We’ll be back!

And, Connie has a fabulous store – three rooms! There she is with my stitching buddy, Linda. Look at all the canvases and threads!! Truly amazing. I got lucky & won one of the 2 gift certificates ($150 off next year’s class went to a local woman). The $50 gift certificate was promptly spent on a LOVE canvas (not pictured here) that I’ll use as my travel piece for my next trip.
