A Stitcher's Finish

Wow, it's been awhile since I 
got to post a stitcher's finish,
but I'm so happy to show you
this one.  This beautiful pillow is
worked by Lynn.
She stitched Dutch Tulip,
one of my freebie designs.  

She's stitched this on 32ct 
Sassy's Sugared Coffee
using DMC floss 
and trimmed it in chenille.
Apparently it was a real keeper
because it was supposed to be 
a gift and she couldn't part with it.
I understand whyI so love it!
Just wonderful Lynn.
Thanks for letting me share it.     
Lynn's  lovely stitching blog is 
If you get a chance pop over to 
see all her  beautiful stitching.
I'll be releasing a new design
in a few days that I've had in the works  
It's called Sweetheart Tree
and should be perfect to 
put out for Valentine's Day.
Until then, happy stitching!

Gray and Gloomy

Seems appropriate. 
I really have no motivation.  I am filled
with so much sadness over this past week's
senseless tragedy.  Such an overwhelming
feeling of disbelief that something
like this has really happened.
I think we are all feeling the same way.
My heart and prayers go out to all
those effected and everyone else 
that this has touched, 
which I know is far reaching.
Love and Blessings to you and yours,

**Just A Quick Post **

To show you my little bit of stitching.
 Really, how adorable is this design?
This is my interpretation of 
Notforgotten Farm'
Xmas freebie.
Stitched in GA Tin Bucket
and DMC 830.
A few mother of pearl buttons
and it's already to be made into
something special.
A bit big for an ornament, so it
may turn into a pinkeep or maybe 
a little cupboard hanger.
Thanks Lori for this sweet little
       Hope you're all getting to do
what you love this weekend too.

Good Friends

and a new banner !
 I was so surprised to get 
this in the mail the other day.
 Yes, my dear sweet friend
Ivonne of The Crackling Crows 
gifted me
with another one of her wonderful
banners.  She thought it
appropriate since she says
I'm always creating.
I just love it!  Isn't it a beauty?
If you don't own one of Ivonne's
awesome banners already,
you'll have to check out her blog!  
I have it hanging in my studio 
on an antique quilt rack
where I keep some of my
favorite ticking.
Ivonne, I am so thankful to call you
my friend.  You are so sweet
and such a joy to have in my life.   
Girl, you know I love you,
right? : )
Thank you from the bottom of 
~*~ ~*~ ~*~
And today I was so excited to be all
  caught up on things,
that I stitched some of 
the morning away.  
( My most favorite thing to do : )
I fell in love with this prim little design
when Lori at Notforgotten Farm
posted the freebie on her blo
a little while ago.
This is what I've stitched so far.
 Hope to have it finished soon.
Happy Weekend all.
PS.  I'll be posting a sneak peek of
the Ladies Prim Society piece
soon, so stay tuned.  If you're interested
