March!  Can we end this winter already!!
Seattle is faring well but gals elsewhere are still buried in snow and hunkered down.  Time for soup and stitching!  

My Trunk Show was terrific!  Very fun to see my designs together, cards to stitch, ribbon and bead fobs, sachets with lavender!  Thank you to friends and supporters.  You made the trunk show fun and a great experience...  lots of exposure to new gals too!

I will change the website design with categories for cards, fobs and dogwoods.

March Crystallize is ready for download.  
Some open spaces for jewels later on. Link is below for stitchguide download.


Stitchers make the best friends.

Blue Dogwood Designs Trunk Show
A first!  Amazing to see my designs all over the walls.  We ran out of space!  I have more Florals than I thought. Thanks to stitcher gals that stopped by!  I appreciate your support!  
Soupy Stitch for those 2 days was also a hit.  
We will do that again!  
Thanks to My Sisters Place in Edmonds.

Did you see the advertisement in Needlework Retailer that highlights Sashiko Sampler and Valdani Threads?  Thank you Valdani!  The threads made this very fun!  

You can still order the line drawn canvas to start.  Lots of gals ordered the thread kit from Peacock Alley Needlepoint, Ada, MI.
