A Little Stitching

I recently received the giveaway that I won from Danielle. As you can see, she was tremendously generous! I love everything. I received 2 wonderful SB kits, fabric, and great kits from RTR. I love pink and she included the most beautiful piece of pink fabric.
Thank you very much Danielle. This is the latest design by BBD, Clara Ellen. Sorry about the picture. It was dark out when I took the picture. The colors are very soft and muted. I didn't like the green they used for the house so I used the gingersnap by CC. I dedicated this one to my paternal great grandmother. I was really fortunate in knowing both of my great grandmothers. I was ten when they both passed. I received my love of the needle arts from one and my love of cooking from the other.

I started this the other day. It's Sarah Street by LHN. I love the fabric. It's vintage butter cream by LSL. I am only okay with the design. There are so many new things from market that I want to do, and I think that those new designs are clouding my mind. Can't wait for some of my stuff to arrive.

Again, I would like to thank everyone for the response to my giveaway. It's awesome. Thanks for all the comments about the blog. I really appreciate them. Until Friday--Happy Stitching.
