What an Honor!

I couple of months ago, I was contacted by Jessica Franchuk the editor of Cross-Stitch and Needlework regarding a possible blog mention in the magazine. Well to my my complete surprise they picked my blog for a mention on the fab finds page of the November issue. They said some very king words about the blog and even showed a picture. All I can say is WOW! I love the magazine and they have some great designs. This month is Fall and Winter designs. Very cool. One of the cutest designs is Snow Capped Trees. It's a very cute sampler design and they also have some great ornies. So, thanks Cross-stitch and Needlework magazine, I am honored to be in your wonderful magazine. Everyone check out this great mag, you will not be disappointed.
I put down the Lord's Blessing when the last 3 DT designs showed up in my mail box. Love this one. It's my favorite so far. The colors are great. I used 32 ct Willow Green fabric (green toned fabric not brown like the pic shows) and the called for NPI, Dinky Dyes and SNC silks.
This was also in my mail box this week. I won a quilt top and backing fabric from Kim at Threadheads, Unite. This woman does everything, she stitches, knits and quilts and collections great stuff. This will be a project for Cheryl and I when she gets better. Again, the colors are way better looking in person. Thanks for all the great comments on my last post. They mean a lot. Got some serious stitching to do this afternoon so until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah
