Another week has gone by. It's been busy here. Didn't get much stitching in because of having company over the week end and , of course, Stella. She has cut into my stitching time but happily so.
Sorry about the really bad picture but it's late and the lighting is terrible. This is the April Word play. The fabric is much lighter than the picture shows. It is 36 ct.v. butter cream using the suggested GA fibers. I did finish the MA sampler and off to the framer it went before I took a picture.
This is all framed up and I think that it came out pretty nice. Now on to the great stuff I received in the mail. I won the best giveaway from Jan from Tree of Life Samplings. Her generosity overwhelmed me.
This were the packages in the box. I love the seals.
I received two of her Emma Rose designs and the floss to do Emma Rose freedom. She included a wonderful thread
holder by Liberty House. I do collect Liberty House products so this was a treat.
She included 2 pieces of her own dyed fabric in the most wonderful colors and the liberty needleminder by Kelmscott. Again, one I didn't have.
Last but not least is the pillow she stitched and was finished by Faye. The finishing is beautiful. I love the dyed lace and the back is finished with a pocket. So beautiful. Thank you Jan for the wonderful gifts! Blogger won't let post any more pics so I will close. Cheryl and I have been busy thrifting and I post about that next. Thanks for visiting and commenting. They mean the world to me. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah
