Make New Friends

The thing I enjoy most about having a stitching blog is the opportunity it affords me to make new friends. I left a comment on the blog of Sonja in Germany toward the end of last year and she kindly responded to me. We've been corresponding through e-mail and I decided to stitch her a little something and send her a surprise package. Here is a picture of the little two-sided pincushion that I stitched and finished for her.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by my blog. Reach out and leave a kind word for someone, you just never know what may happen.

I'm Still Standing

Happy New Year! A bit late don't you think? I started the year with grand intentions to do some interior updating in the house that we've lived in for close to 15 years. As some of you probably know, it's a long, slow process and I still feel like I'm camping out inside of my own home. Hopefully, that will all be behind me by the end of this month.

Stitching time has been scarce but I did manage a small start to my Beatrix Potter piece last month. I decided to stitch the piece on 32 ct. desert sand linen and to use Gloriana silk in the Rosewood color.

I sent two ornaments for our group ornament exchange at the beginning of the week. The first one was for Cathy B and I stitched her Prairie Schooler's Christmas Bell

The second ornament was for Carol. I stitched her one of the santas from The Prairie Schooler's Father Christmas leaflet.

I hope that they both liked what I stitched for them.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate your frienship so much.
