{ testing...1 2 3 }

I will now attempt to upload pictures onto this blog.
attempt #1:
okedokee then..
onto what I wanted to show you yesterday!
here are the new racks that Peter built for my patterns...
they are wall racks that are about 8 feet high!!
if you've been a visitor to the shop previously, you'll remember that is was kind of difficult to sort through the file of patterns to find the one you were looking for...
well, not any more!!

cross stitch and punch needle patterns are snug in their new, alphabetized racks!
makes things MUCH easier :)))
... you might notice too,
 that the cross stitch is now where the punch needle was,
and vice-versa...
we needed the room for the models to display better
~ and this was what worked best ~
 I am love-ing how all of my larger cross stitch models look now...
they are hung properly and you can better see each one ~

a small change, but a BIG difference!

and the punch needle patterns are on the opposite wall above the fabric bolts...
the punch needle patterns now correspond and are found on the same side with their models,
the same for the cross stitch...

here is a view straight on into the pattern room:
you can see the rack of xstitch to your left, the rack of punch needle to your right, on the far wall.

I am one happy girl!!
Thank  you,
my sweet hubby and to my hard working dad-in-law too...

Oh how I "wish" I lived closer to visit your shop. I love how everything is displayed. There just isn't any substitution for actually seeing the models in person. :-)

Maybe some day..... Pam/in PA.

Wow Lori...this is looking wonderful. I see a road trip in my future. I have a brother who lives in Warrenton, VA and other relatives in Roanoke, VA...so I'm going to make it a point of visiting your place too ! Might as well cover the whole state. :)

I agree with Cathy G. That's a whole lot of creativity on those walls and now they're displayed in the proper fashion. It really looks super and Peter does fine work. It's so nice to have a hubby with such know how. My hub is the same way. We're lucky. I'm sure your visitors will love viewing all your patterns in their new display.
Smiles, Nan

I'm impressed and just wish I lived closer. As each of your pictures appeared I studied each one but not able to get the full benefit as if I were there in person.

You're quite lucky to have such talented and helpful men in the family. And, bet you'll have better sales now that the patterns can be seen easily.


Jennifer said...

Hope to get down that way some day! What a beautiful shop!
