Sometimes it takes very little to get excited around here. The 2005 NCCSS (Rockome) mailing came this week and I've just been reading it. What a great time I always have there and 2005 will be more than a little fun. This year's show is June 3-12.

Libby and I will sponsor the "prize to end all prizes" again this year - a trip to London with our Linn & Libby in London tour group. The London trip in 2005 will be won by the stitcher (amateur or professional) who stitches up the very best blackwork project.

Libby and I are also sponsoring a Country Evening on June 11. So sign up quickly for a Teddy Bear's Picnic. You won't be admitted without a special friend (teddy, dolly or other plush companion).

This year's theme is Reproduction Samplers and although I don't often teach reproductions I have a special project saved for Rockome. I have an early-mid 19th century Rhode Island sampler to teach AND I have a group of family mementos to share with the class. I own the family Book of Common prayer where family letters, news clippings, photos, stitching, locks of hair, baptismal certificates, etc. were saved. I am now doing family history research on the stitcher Sallie Watson and hope to know more about her and her family by June.

More on Rockome projects as time goes on. I'll try to give some glimpses of class projects here in my blog and on our web site.
