Sounds like Summer, doesn't it? *grin*
Last year... sometime around August, I had received Kathy Schmitz's Newletter in my e-mail. In the newsletter, she offered (for subscriber's only) a Bird In Hand blackwork strawberry pinkeep kit. You know I got me one! :-) It wasn't until this morning that I finally got it all finished... and tried for about an hour to get a good pic of it. This is as good as I can get the pic... so I apologize for the blurries... the background fabric has a tea stained crackle look about it... and the button on top is a black fabric with tiny cream dots on it. Great design and great kit! I filled it with crushed walnut shells... it's about 4" high and 2" wide.
Now for some daisies... in glass ball jars!!! How perfect for Summer is that? Well... Anne over at Cottons and Wool had a Giveaway not too long ago. It was for a wool kit called "Just Picked Table Runner" that was very generously donated by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings... I was the lucky gal who was picked as the winner to receive this awesome kit! Thanks so much Anne!!! I'll be stitching on it this weekend!
Anne also took the time to post some wonderful pictures from quilt market on her blog... so, grab a cup or glass of something refreshing, click here, and relax and enjoy some great eye candy!
Well... we had some soaking rains from a tropical storm that blew through here yesterday and last night. I'm all for playing in the dirt (gardening) but, I do not play in the mud.. lol! So, it's sweet stitchin' time for this gal today... :-)
Until next time... stay healthy and keep on smiling!
