A little bit of decorating

My sister Carla gave me this beautiful wine rack for Christmas.  She had found one that sat on the floor but I told her I really wanted one that would fit into the niche in my new built in hutch in the kitchen/dining area.  The one she found is just perfect.  I love the glass details in it. 

This week  I put up all the snow people decorations so it was time to “redo” the niche.  I even had some wine to put in the rack from a trip to the Cumberland Plateau of TN in the summer of 2007.  We visited Stonehaus Winery while we were there.  The beautiful piece of pottery on the right was also a gift from Carla for my birthday.  She has wonderful taste and her own house (and her Kindermusik studio and office and new guest house) is decorated to perfection.  The table runner matches my placemats – I found the fabric at Mary Jo’s in Gastonia – backed them and bound them with fabric that matches my window treatments – quilted them on my longarm – so they are also reversible.

I’m not sure I like this new theme/format for my blog but I’ll try it out for a bit.

    Hi

    I have had a look at your work and it’s stunning. I was wondering if you would be interested in showcasing some of your work on Stitcher’s Showcase.

    Stitcher’s Showcase is a website my husband Jeff and I have started that is dedicated to stitching artists showcasing their work, including quilting and tapestry artists. We want to provide a great community for artists to showcase their work and to interact. We would love to see you bring your talents to the site.

    We hope the community will inspire others and help them with their activities.

    There is no charge. You can customise your own page and include a link back to your website to help promote your own activities. We only ask no blatant commercial promotion of products etc.

    The website is http://StitchersShowcase.com

    If you like the site and would be kind enough to help us spread the word, a mention in your blog or on your website would be greatly appreciated.

    Regardless, I would love to see you showcase your work there.

    Thanks, and look forward to hearing from you.

    Sincerely
    Ann Pritchard
    Stitcher’s Showcase
