Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you so much for your input on the "ABC Noel" Sampler - I agree with the consensus that the letters and pictures do not correspond and are just red letters with seasonal images. One super thing about this sampler is that I can finish up a letter in an evening stitching - it is like a little mini finish!! That is a real jolt to the ego! Last night was the lettre "C" - here is a snap of the the entire piece as it stands...
That looks like mistletoe to me - later on there is a bunch of what I presume to be holly - and not on the "H". The start of the lettre "D" is a dark green fir tree. . It is a great sampler so far - and you know me - I do love stitching the alphabet!! I will have to put this down for a day or so as I need to finish up an exchange piece I am working on so that I can get it in the mail on Monday.
Yesterday the mail brought a really lovely Birthday prezzie from Berit. When I opened up the box I found....
....everything all beautifully wrapped with a gorgeous card!! And, here are all the treats....
...starting in the lower left corner some really delightful incense, a micro-planer for ginger and citrus rind, and some tasty cookies!! Thank you so much Berit!!
That about wraps it up for today sports fans - thanks again for stopping by and for your comments!!
