Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you for all your kind comments - as always I so appreciate them and enjoy reading them. I am falling way behind in my Blog reading and commenting.
I had some super mail arrive yesterday. So in order of arrival........
A few weeks ago I loaned out a little chart from my Heap o'Stash and when the chart was returned there were some goodies along with it...
I love me some cheese straws!! - and - the hank of silk is simply gorgeous!! It was so sweet of Vera to send along these treats. I do know how hard some OOP charts are to find, I never mind helping out other stitchers with a loan of them!!
The other day I showed you the Fall exchange piece that I made and sent off - well, mine arrived yesterday and it's super cute!!! Marie was partner, her Blog Creative thread is really wonderful and so worth a look!! Here are a couple of snaps.....
This is the Acorn she made me from Prairie Schooler Book #65, it is stitched 1 over 1 and is just darling. I love Thanksgiving and the Pilgrims with the little wee Turkey are so great!!!
Along with the super Acorn were some pretty terrific treats!! Thank you so much Marie, you did another stupendous job!!!!!!
As you know, I can barely help myself from buying stash. It's a crazy illness!! But, I have cut way back, or at least I tell myself that. A while back I was perusing the Bay of evil and came across a couple of pieces of linen I couldn't resist..... I also came up against another stitcher "downsizing" (which I should do ) and couldn't resist a little something there either!!
The two pieces of linen are from "Stitches and Spice" a company in Australia. I have never seen nor stitched on this brand. But, a chart I have calls for some and I have hemmed and hawed over it for a couple of years whether or not to get a piece to work with. Well, this looked like the opportunity to jump in and so I did - The linen is really lovely and I will not hesitate again about this brand!! I got a great piece of "Camofudge" and a piece of " Sugar Cane Crunch." The chart I acquired was a "Pocketbook Needlework" booklet from one of my favorite OOP designers Mary Beale!!
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks again for stopping by and commenting - do stop again!
