Gentle Readers and Dear Friends the mail was really very good to me yesterday!!!
As you might remember I am part of a small group of stitchers doing a year long exchange over at Friends Stitching Through the Seasons 2012, and yesterday I received my Summer Package from my partner Karen. Here is a snap of everything she sent...
In addition to the beautifully stitched and finished Recipe Box, Karen included a couple of fun things.... a Wooly Wily and light up caterpillar. Inside the box where a set of great molds and a patriotic heart to hang up - and - two lovely pieces of fabric for finsihing!! Here is a close up of the Box...
It is perfedctlly stitched and the finishing is top notch. I know this will be a wonderful addition to my kitchen and help corral some of my ever growing pile of recipes!!! Thank you so much Karen another super duper exchange!!!!
The mail also brought some stash. Every year Prairie Schooler releases new patterns for the Fall/Winter Season and this years additions I could not resist - I do love me some PS!!!!
In addiition to the New PS charts I got a couple of OOP Charts I won off the Bay of Evil... both BoF Hallowe'en charts and both totally cute!! I have been after these for a while and now they are mine!!!
I think my favorite of the new PS charts would have to be "O Christmas Tree" I really like the 12 Days of Christmas ornaments - and know they will have to be stitched up!! I also really like the new idea of Hallowe'en Cards, like the annual Santa Cards
I started "July" Cottage last night after converting all the floss to over dyed choices I like (and have already). I'll show a snap in a day or two.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for all the great comments and emails and for just stopping by - do stop again!!
