Annual Woodlawn Show and A New Start!

Hello! My beautiful mom and I went to the annual Needlework Show at Woodlawn in Alexandria last week. We noticed fewer cross stitch projects and more canvas needlepoint and embroidery. It was all interesting to see, but one thing that has always bothered me about this exhibit is that there is ZERO MENTION of the designer or project names on any of the exhibits. You also can't photograph close up so you can look for it later either.

I was able to get some photos of the lovely old rooms and the awesome needlework quotes they have on the walls there. Maybe I'll contribute next year. We will  see.

















I have a finish, but it's a gift and being framed, so that will need to wait a bit. I do however, have a fun new start!


Be back soon with some progress pics on my new start. I hope everyone had a great weekend and that you may all have time to stitch this week! Until then,

  2. I enjoyed your photos of Woodlawn. I went for the very first time on the 16th. Like you, I would have preferred having design information. You could have filled out a form and they would get back to you in a few days which sort of defeats the purpose of knowing at the moment. Lovely colors in your new start!

    1. Oh thank you! I wasn't aware of that. But yes, you are right, it defeats the purpose, especially if you're heading over to In Stitches to buy after the show!

    2. What fun things did you buy at In Stitches? We stopped there following our time at Woodlawn as well.

    3. Robin, my stash fund was used for framing a gift for my mom! I cannot wait to show it off when it gets back! That's one of the best stores ever. They are so helpful and nice.

  3. I loved to see your pictures. Those antique rooms are a wonderful frame for all the stitched projects.
