With two weeks until "show time", I am feeling the pressure of getting everything together and making every attempt not to forget anything. I sat down with the TSV Sampler Project to try to figure the best way to display this in my booth(s) at the shows. I think I am going to section the whole piece so that it can be connected by velcroe at 4 1/2 - 5 foot lengths that can be hung together in rows and re-attached to roll into the one long sampler as I have it now. Otherwise, the view of it is limited to the section "unrolled" on the doodlin around fame. So, I am also making a final shopping list for things I will have to get for the shows. Dowel rods, shower curtain hangers . . . I hope this idea works and better go this afternoon for samples to test the method. The only other display I am contemplating is the TSV primer and something for the Collective Stitch project. I do wish I had gotten more of that stitched, but my stitching time has been limited of late and I have had to do what I can. Three trips in July, August, and September have cut in to my morning/evening stitching. Hopefully, I am back on track and can stay focused. Along with being a procrastinator, I can be a little short on the attention span, also. Hope to see you at either the Needlework Galleria or the Spirit of Cross Stitch show!
