Wonderful Stuff in the Mail!










Today was a wonderful mail day! First off, I received my HOE Lizzie Kate exchange from Mama Joan at http://stitchingsquad.blogspot.com/ Her finishing is absolutely perfect and I love every single thing that she sent me! Boy have I been spoiled!












Next I got my order from Joggles.com - a wonderful site! Well, I don't know how I did it and can't seem to fix it...the two patterns in the upper right is what I received from Joggles today...a cute apron and sweatshirt pattern.
Off to fondle my new goodies! Have a wonderful Saturday!

A bit more progress on Mystery Spot Sampler


I'm done with page 2 now and have a bit of a start on page 3.


This one is immensely enjoyable but I'm feeling pressure since I'm so behind...I think page 20 has been published!

I love Blackbird Designs!


Blackbird Designs comes a close second to Shepherd's Bush in my book! I got a nice little start today on BD's Mystery Sampler #1. I'm going to be adventurous and stitch it on the pieces of linen that need sewn together at the end.



This evening I'm going to start my first-ever no sew cube finish for my Lizzie Kate exchange on the H.O.E. blog. Wish me luck!

Have a wonderful Sunday evening all!

Exchange pictures and BP Quaker Progress




Mayte ( http://magicxstitch.blogspot.com/ ) had a Christmas ornament exchange this last year and I've heard from my partner in Barcelona that she has received it and likes it!


WOW that took a long time to get there!







I've joined Hazel's Beatrix Potter Quaker Stitchalong blog http://nbpq.blogspot.com/





I was the 100th member...Phew! Here's a pic of my January progress. I chose DMC threads 3740, 3041,3042. (dusty grape colors) I'm doing 1 over 1 on this one. The fabric is either an Antique Ivory or a Custard Cream...I didn't have it labeled. Anyways, it's not at all green like it looks in the scan!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Mystery Spot Sampler


I can't show you what I stitched on today...it's for a Lizzie Kate exchange on the HOE blog.


I CAN show you my little bit of progress on the Mystery Spot Sampler. I am very nearly done with part 1. I'm using 3 colors of Hand-dyed Fibers silk. (a grape, a plum and a variegated one of both.) Lambswool linen in 28ct. over one.



Thanks for reading my new blog...your comments mean a lot!

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Band Sampler RR 2008-2009


Today I finished up my part on Misty's RR. She always chooses the nicest color schemes! The last three rows are my doing. The scan is a bit hard to see. My first row is snails.
