It is official I am now a member of "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pattern". The pattern, Waxing Moon Designs #119, arrived from Jennifer on 5 September. I have been too busy to do anything with it other than choose a fabric color, I am going to stitch her on 14ct light blue fiddlers. Now I just need to pick the floss colors, I will probably stick close to the pattern, but you never know. More to come on this subject.
Not only did I complete my very this weekend, I also received the most fabulous floss tag with scissors from Staci. It was part of a PIF and I am sooooo lucky to get this from her. She is an extremely talented stitcher. I have decided that her floss tag will go on display, never to be used it is just to beautiful.
My Floss Tag
I received two fantastic exchanges on my Cross Stitch Friends group. From Nora, my BFF since teenage hood, a great Christmas package. She sent three skeins of WDW floss, one that I will definitely use on my little one's name flake. A great Mill Hill kit, my very first one, scissors, needles, thread heaven (thanks, I needed some more) and some mints that I will have to hide from my DS, he is addicted to mints. JoAnn, aka Kaghos, sent me a great Dog Days of Summer package. Plenty of treats to keep me energized as I stitch, lovely herbal teas, a Lavender and Lace pattern, a sweet little froggie to ward off the RIPIT demon, as well as blending filament and some seaside embellishments. I have truly been spoiled. Thank-you both.
Christmas in August from BFF Nora
Do you remember this basket from post on a few weeks ago, well it has a new look. I bought some flowers from Michael's and voila, it is now a nice Fall centerpiece for my table. I think I should be able to use that for years to come.
I wish all of you a great week and I send you all a big THANK-YOU for stopping by. I really am grateful for all your comments.
