I had heard of Reflets de Soie before and I might even have one or two of their designs in my stash, but I came across two of their reproduction samplers this week and am now experiencing severe sampler lust. I think I have tracked down "Anais Curveur 1896",
. . . and Heloise Cornu 1896 and am contemplating adding them to my stash in anticipation to stitching them. They are both so pleasing--they are really lovely.
Of course the last thing I need to even think about is adding to my stash when I have this massive piece of linen just waiting for "L'Automne' by BOAF! Why didn't I think about how big it really is? Oh well, maybe this will in reality stitch up quickly?

On a side note, I do have a couple of questions. I am going to be going to Fort Worth, Texas at the end of the month for a short work conference. I won't have much free time, but is anyone aware of a local needlework shop in Fort Worth? May be just as well if there isn't one as I really don't need to buy anything new!
I will, however, have time while flying and while waiting for connecting flights to find something to occupy myself. I will, of course, be taking a couple of books with me, but I would love to be able to take a needlework project, too. It has been ages since I have even thought of traveling with pins and needles let alone scissors. Are these things allowed on planes these days? I would hate to have them taken away. I will have to do a little research to see what the TSA allows. Has anyone traveled with scissors recently? It would be prime stitching time, if it works out.
Next time--a progress report on my bee sampler!
