Some Stitching and some mail

I think this week is gonna be a non-snappy of my stitching as everything lined up is for exchanges. Last night I was working on my mail-art piece. I am really thinking this is going to come together really nice - but I have been known to be wrong before!! I adjusted a chart and changed up some of the floss' and tonight will be the real test to see if I can make the whole thing come together!! Then the next two pieces are also exchanges..... deadlines and commitments - my keys words for the week!!

I did have some super de duper mail yesterday - If you cast your memory back and to another blog - dear Vonna - stitched up a gorgeous sampler a week or so back.... "Lo, how a Rose Sampler." I was immediately drawn to this piece as it is one of my favorite Christmas carols - "Es ist ein Ros enstprungen" - It is so beautiful and such a meaningful Christmas piece. I found a copy of the book on Amazon an slappidy damn it arrived ....

That's about it for today kiddos - I really like some of the new things from Nashville Market!!!! There a quite a few pieces I will have (did I say have) to get. One piece is called "Quaker Seasons of Friendship" - that sucker is huge!!! Around 440 x 250 - and just spectacular!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

How funny! I just ordered this from Amazon yesterday. Vonna is a really good enabler, isn't she?

I thought of you right away when I saw the HUGE Quaker :-)

And I just purchased that book also!! I want to do the same sampler inspired by Vonna's finish. :-)

Edgar, that's great you found the book. I too, have been lusting over Vonna's 'lo how a rose...

But, I was lucky enough to find it on the shelf at our public library!

So, checked that sucker out! I'm sure I'll have to renew several times.... Ha!

Oh, I love the "Lo"... I've been working on an exchange (feverishly!) and have set it aside for now, but it will be the first thing I pick up in a couple of days! I'm using the weeks dye works threads on antique white linen. Love, love, love it! I also love the chart that is similar to it "Soweth Sampler". I think that will be next.

Edgar, love your blog. I love that Christmas carol and it was also my dad's favorite. He loved for my sisters and I to sing it for him and when he died we sang it for him at the funeral. It has wonderful memories for me.
