Edie & Ginger Trunk Show

From CBK Needleworks we have in the house for the next two weeks a trunk show featuring designs from Edie & Ginger.

Edie & Ginger owned a needlepoint shop outside Philadelphia for many years and their store is fondly remembered by long-time needlepointers in this area. Edie & Ginger are the inventors of the needlepoint frog and the trunk show, not surprisingly, features most of their frog designs.

Also included in the trunk show are numerous Christmas stocking canvases many with whimsical themes including my personal favorite the caroling chorus of mermaids (pictured here)!

I was surprised by a wonderful series of canvases featuring popular fairy tales and children's story book themes. These designs would make a wonderful grouping of pillows for a children's room.
