This is the rest of what was in the box. A very nice cup and little tray for cupcakes, napkins, 2 cupcakes-one made out of fabric and a DMC cupcake, buttons, recipes and so much more! I was overwhelmed by their generosity. Come to find out that Lainey had my name. She made this exchange wonderful for me. Lainey, I can't thank you enough for all the beautiful things that you made for me.
This design was sent to me by Carol of polka dot chicken. I had commented on her blog that I loved this design and she sent it to me. Aren't stitchers the greatest!? Thanks Carol.
It's been a week since my last post. I don't know where the time has gone. It's been very busy here doing what we all do in the summer. Sorry for the pics. I went outside to take them and found out that it was raining. Why didn't I know it was raining, you ask. It was in the 90's today and the shades were down. I did August by Drawn Thread. The material is a 32 ct mystery fabric (I think it's woodsmoke by LSL). It's a brown color but the the brown it shows in the pic. The fibers are NPI and SNC. It will go into the frame I use for all of the months. The leaves were fun to do but the lazy daisies were challenging at times. You can click on the pictures for a larger better view.
I finished Winifred Gardner. I messed up the stairs and will be redoing them this evening. That's all for today. Will be back with an update on the SAL my Wednesday stitching group is doing. I am almost finished with Spring. Thanks for all the great comments on the last post. They are appreciated. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah
