I subscribe to Mary Corbet’s Needle'nThread site. She does beautiful handwork, has a fantastic list of ‘how to stitch’ videos, and does a lot of great reviews for stitch-related items. This week she shared a great idea – a fabric swatch book. Many of you may already have one of these, but I don’t and wonder why not!
In the mail this week I got a special treat from Karen in Arizona. It’s a little pieced pin cushion with embroidery stitching, and trimmed with buttons and pins. Thank you so much, Karen.
I’m still stitching on Mary Gibson, but since I left work early on Friday because of the ice storm, got a little extra stitching in. So I spent a little while working on a few finishes. There’s Jingle all the Way, Winter Row, and Merry Christmas. Those links will take you to the post where they stitched. You can see these and others over at SNTF.
I received a comment from an Anonymous user named Ada, but couldn’t reply due to No-Comment address. With some effort I found out that she is the creator of the DoLolly wrote about years ago. She has been very sick for some time, but is now selling them again. If you’re interested, you can find them on here on eBay.
Thanks for stopping by, today and always. I appreciate your thoughts and comments!
May 2013 be filled with Happy Stitching!
