First up is a very cute needle book that I received Thursday in the mail from Myra. You all know her from gr8dame's Place. Her sewing skills are excellent. She makes the cutest things. I don't know how she remembered that I love pink. Below is a picture of the inside, which had a skein of variegated floss and 2 pink floss winders. The card was so pretty. Thanks so much Myra!
A couple of weeks ago I went to the new Hobby Lobby in NH. It really is a day trip from where I live. I went specifically for this box so I could do all the wonderful little Halloween pillows from BBD. They didn't have any boxes the day I went. I came home with some floss but no box. i was so disappointed. This past weekend my friend, Nataly, went and look what she brought home for me. Yeah! You have no idea how excited I was when she gave me this gift at stitching group on Wednesday. Thanks, again Nataly.
Thursday night at my other stitching group, Joanne gave me this beautiful shawl that she knitted. The color is more rusty than orange. It's over 60 inches long and has a pocket on both ends. It is perfect. I was told that it is a prayer shawl and it is given to you when you have a lose. Whatever the reason, I love it. I can't thank Myra, Nataly and Joanne enough for the kindness that they shown me. Stitchy friends are the best.
On to my stitching, I finished Christmas Tea and off to the framer it went. It was a joy to stitch.
This is winter Wind sampler by PSS from the JC magazine. I love the whimsy of this piece. It is done on 32 ct quicksilver linen using the called for CC floss. The fabric has a really nice lavender undertone to it. I probably won't be able to blog before Thanksgiving, so I want everyone to have a blessed day with family and friends. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I have a lot to be thankful for. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah
